Wow House! Sordid Past Makes This Elmhurst Home a Bargain


by Dave Noble, Real Estate Section

ELMHURST – Create some new history in this 19th century Second Empire-style home near Butterfield Park, priced to sell and fully furnished.  Iron cresting, a central tower and a floating mist are just some of the exterior features.

Gothic touches throughout, the 8 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths are filled with an abundance of ornamentation and amenities, including nailbeds, iron maidens and stockades.  Tunnels and passages connect the lab to the infirmary, while others lead to some yet-unexplored areas of the property.

Flickering lights and moving shadows are just some of the whimsical features that will keep you and your family in touch – sometimes physically – with those who lived here before you.

For more information and legal disclosures (including an explanation of a “stigmatized property”) call Mike Sparrow of Schiller Real Estate at #630-834-4374.
