Hi OHJ Community,

If you've seen my posts from "Red Queen" you will see how much love and care we have put into restoring our 1878 Stick-Style Victorian home.  I'm a long-time OHJ online contributor and I've decided to relocate and am offering my home in Malta, IL (5 miles W of DeKalb, IL and 30 min W of Aurora, IL) for sale.  It was built by the family of Jacob Haish, the inventor of barbed wire and a founder of Northern Illinois University.  It has original woodwork, hardwood floors, pocket doors, stained glass, clawfoot tub, original enamel sink, original kitchen cabinetry, built-in cabinet, many restored original screens/storms, and an extremely rare pink marble hearth in perfect condition.  New furnace, central A/C, newer roof.  Double lot, 3000 square feet, with a Master suite on 2nd floor (nursery/exercise room, bathroom with laundry, WIC), and a 3rd floor suite (family room, bathroom, bedroom).  $164,000 - motivated for quick sell because of relocation.  Property taxes are extremely inexpensive for Illinois and for DeKalb school district 428.

Red Queen,

Your hearth looks very similar to mine in Maryland. (Fully described and pictured here: ) It looks like yours is in the office/library, too with doors into the room on each side.

This beautiful grand old Biloxi home sit just one house off the mississippi gulf coast. There are over 1200 sf of wrap around porches where you can sit and enjoy the fulf breezes. One mile from the best gaming casinos and world class entertainment, deep sea fishing, golf year round...a quiet, safe neighborhood but close enough to all the fun! Http:// A great investment opportunity in one of the top ten real estate growth markets predicted for the next couple of years.

Experience time travel and come back to a simpler life in a home that embraces you with warmth and tranquility. Craftsman House No. 104, designed in 1910 by Gustav Stickley is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been lovingly restored and updated. It is sited on an oversized lot with beautiful gardens and mature trees, located in the coveted Latchstring area of Oradell, recently selected as the Best Family Town in New Jersey.  
The first floor delights with chestnut wood paneling in the Living Room, cypress beamed ceilings and hand-painted Stickley stencils. Warm yourself by the tapestry brick fireplace surrounded by inglenook benches or relax in the spacious, sunlight filled Family Room overlooking a brick patio inviting alfresco summer dining decorated by a fountain and rock garden.
The warm feelings continue upstairs where walls of the four bedrooms are textured by beautiful grass cloth, each in a different, subtle color, and are ringed by arts and crafts stencils direct from Stickley’s "The Craftsman" magazine. The third floor surprises with a large, fifth bedroom, a full bath and multiple storage areas - an excellent spot for a teen-ager’s hideout or a private guest suite. The partially finished basement offers up a darkroom/wine cellar, spaces for an office, laundry and workshop. 
While embracing the past, it is easy to step into the present: only 40 minutes from mid-town Manhattan via train, bus or auto, Oradell exudes a small-town atmosphere with a great coffee shop, regional theater, beautiful parks and playgrounds, along with houses of worship of every denomination. With a population of 8,000 the community boasts Blue Ribbon schools and the house is only a minute to the bus stop for NYC and a 10-minute walk to the train station. It’s also minutes from several shopping malls, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods Market and Fairway. And you’ll need to shop, because you will entertain in style—it is a fantastic party house in all seasons!
Updated through the years, this truly breathtaking home offers the beauty of 1911 craftsmanship along with the comforts of modern day living. Built with an exterior of hollow tile block, the house was designed to be fireproof and efficient to heat and cool (it is!) and it still has the original Ludowici Spanish tile roof (with care it should last another 100 years—the tiles are still made today). Natural gas cooking and heat. Air conditioning was installed in 2006. Separate two-car garage with automatic garage doors. Water heater and furnace are less than 10 years old.
After 32 years we are now reluctantly putting No. 104 on the market. We feel privileged to have been the custodians of this home; it is has served us well. Stickley’s philosophy that the home environment is the key to building good character and good citizens has certainly been true in our case, but the children have moved on in life and we must do so too. Now it is your turn to experience this most special home in a most special town. It will be the experience of a lifetime.
