The Campbell Street House

If you follow my blog, you know I like to take exterior photos of historic homes in the area and give ya’ll a tour. Recently I found that one of those historic homes in Geneva is now up for sale and I was able to grab some interior photos (source of photo if not mine is Miscella Real Estate).

This is the historic house on Campbell Street that I love.
It’s not extravagant, rather, it has simple clean lines and pretty urns out front.
All following photos are from Miscella Real Estate.
I’ve always been a sucker for staircases bare of carpet.
I know, I know. They’re noisier and more of a safety hazard but they’re beautiful.
A bright and sunny family room greets you upon entering.
A classic kitchen is a cook’s dream with an over-sized oven range.
An expansive island allows several guests to cozy up and watch the cook work her magic.
A charming courtyard lies just outside the kitchen door.
Another light-filled room with a rich, dark wood floor. Yum!
A cozy office under the eaves. I think I’d turn the desk around and place it closer to the windows.
The curtain style in this bedroom has always been a favorite of mine.
I love the smocking on top and of course, white curtains are crisp and charming.
A quaint little boy’s room with furry friends to keep him company. Love the stuffed animals used as decor!
How adorable is that giant diaper pin above the changing table?
Makes me wanna have a baby just so I can do that in a room. Well, maybe not.
And, Hello!  This home has a rear staircase! I would love a house with two stairways.
The bright, laundry room is just off the back staircase.
I love that they added a brick patio as opposed to a deck. It’s more in style with the home.
One drawback to this home is the lack of a grassy backyard, which may be why it’s for sale.
With young charges, you gotta have room for them to run and play outside.
Hope you enjoyed the tour of the historic home on Campbell Street in Geneva.
It’s available through Miscella Real Estate for $885,000 if you’re interested in moving to Illinois!

  2. Simply gorgeous!

  3. Beautiful home, it is alot larger than the picture looks like. Love the kitchen!

  4. A beautifully restored home!! The rooms are so spacious. I love the detailed walls and the kitchen, oh my!! A dream home, inside and out!

    Thanks for the tour!

  5. Thanks for taking the time to visit Posed Perfection today and leave me a sweet comment about the Cottage Cheese Pancakes. I hope you enjoy them… they are a different texture from traditional pancakes…more like a heavy crepe. Anyway, we love them and I hope you do too. Have a great weekend!

  6. I enjoyed it vey much.


  7. Morning Jennifer! Love love this house. I especially love the uncluttered look even though it was probably staged – yet I was decorating that kitchen within minutes of seeing it!!lol

    After mowing lawn in this awful heat I would actually welcome the all brick backyard – no little ones here!

    Thanks for sharing this – Jeannette

  8. I love looking inside other people’s homes and this is a lovely one. My favorite room is the kitchen. Thanks for the tour.

  9. Hi Jennifer,
    Love this home! That safety pin over the changing table is too cute and all of the doors in the home are gorgeous.

  10. Thanks for sharing this. I love the kitchen. Just a beautiful home.


  11. beautiful, jennifer! i would love a courtyard like that one, gorgeous kitchen, and laundry!

  12. That house is amazing!! Love the dark wood floors with all the white moldings and that kitchen omg. I love it all 🙂

  13. I love your home tours! It’s a special treat to get to see the inside too. This one is gorgeous!! Too bad it’s a little (maybe a lot) out of my price range. Love it!!


  14. Wow, I love this home, if it was in Auckland and in the area I live you would have to pay at least 1.5 million for it. Our houses in Auckland, New Zealand have just become so overpriced. For a little less than this house I have a tiny cottage 120 sq metres only….I am on that flight to Illinois!

  15. What a gorgeous home!


  17. I want to live in that house.

  18. Jennifer,
    What a beautiful home! Great photos!

  19. Jennifer, I just love, love, love your home tours, inside and out. Feeds my home addiction. Your burlap bag idea in the post below is such a great idea as well. Thanks for the tutorial. I’m going to hang onto that!

  20. Oh, only $885? This house is absolutely perfect. I love the diaper pin too, I’ll make you a deal..when we have a baby we can put that in his/her room. If we can find one. Or crafty grandma can make it. I love this house. I like the stairs too. I’m not a fan of carpet. Is this a house we passed while running?

  21. ooooh! Wow! That house is very nice! I like it 🙂


  22. Beautiful! The kitchen is a dream and the little courtyard, just adorable!

  23. Beautiful inside and out!!

  24. What a pretty home! Now I could move right in there, except I’d have to change the child’s room and the nursery. That business is all over with! 😉
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  25. The home shows very well and is beautiful! Especially love the wood throughout the home, kitchen and brick patio………Thanks for sharing!

  26. I so can’t afford this but I could move in and be perfectly happy for the rest of my life. Just perfect. Popped over from Kim’s party.

  27. Wow, of course I love this house and this kitchen! Great tour and lovely blog you have, thank you for sharing!

  28. I would kill for a kitchen that size! Mine is the smallest room in my 1920’s craftsman.

  29. Wow! Such a beautiful home. Every room has a WOW factor. Thanks for sharing it, I LOVE home tours. XO, Pinky

  30. I would move to Illinois in a heartbeat as it is the land I was born and raised and I would definitely take that house, though I think $885,000 is just a tab out of my price range. DRATS!!
