UPDATED HISTORY! Only blocks from the train and easy walking to historic downtown Wheaton. Home was built by one of the founding families of Wheaton and totally remodeled 20 years ago to service the needs of an 8-person family with all new mechanicals, electric, and plumbing. Sprinkler for large yard and a front and rear driveway to allow smooth flow for a large family. 4-car attached garage (with a multi-room recreation area above, built to be changed to a mother-in-law suite) is rare in an 1890s Wheaton Victorian due to zoning changes. Great quiet neighborhood where many growing families reside. Wheaton North School, along with Longfellow and Franklin schools, make this a home for the long term. A focal point of the main floor is the over-sized kitchen with seating for six at counter and room for a large table to seat 12 or more. Designed for a large family to live in comfortably with areas to reconvene when some quiet is needed, including the 3rd-floor "teen suite." A SPECTACULAR HOME WITH SPECTACULAR SPACE!
