Looking for a thriving turnkey business? Sylvia's Irish Inn Bed & Breakfast is looking for a new owner. Designed by Rudolph Zachariah Gill, an 1887 graduate of the University of Illinois in architecture and engineering and built in 1895 Sylvia's is an architectural masterpiece. The imposing gables and asymmetrical massing give Sylvia's a strong silhouette. The design is quite whimsical and charming with many irregular exterior details and a variety of mismatched palladian, baroque, and lancet windows. The front facade has two gables, an octagonal turret on the left corner, and a curved porch supported by carved wooden columns and decorated with radial brackets. Under the porch is a lovely, beveled glass triptych window. Inside the house, intricate Victorian architectural details abound. Inlaid parquet floors in the four public rooms, a magnificent oak gingerbread staircase, many original brass lighting fixtures, beveled and original stained-glass windows, butternut pocket doors, fireplace, and decorative woodwork. There are three queen bedrooms on the second floor, each with its own unique features. And the lofty king attic suite complete with its own bathroom and kitchenet really accentuates the fanciful asymmetry of the house. Behind the house is the carriage house that has been converted into an apartment for the owner or could also be rented. This is a unique opportunity to own a beautiful historical home that already provides income. Don't let this one get away! Call/Text LA Tim Turner to schedule your showing today. 1-217-898-4353
