My House is For Sale

Please bear with me as I use our business blog to post the details about my home being for sale. We have a large customer base spread out all over and so I think the blog is a good place to let people know about this property. Tom has been traveling to Indiana to go to work for years, and he is tired of the drive, and time change. Our son has graduated from High School, and it is time to sell the place we built...and quite honestly LOVE!

So here are the details:
House and 20.39 acres. A nice mixture of woods, and tillable acreage.

Located in rural Fairmount, Illinois. (61841). 30 minutes from Champaign-Urbana to the west, and 20 minutes from Danville to the east. Catlin School District.

This is a 3 bedroom totally brick ranch style home. (2200 sq feet) We built this home in 1996. Looks to be 2 story but is all on one level. (I hate stairs). We have LV, DR, Kitchen, large laundry room with extra storage, lots of storage in closets, office with glass pocket doors, 24x24 attached garage. I designed this home with an open floor plan because I hate being closed off from my family. We have updated this home, and it includes appliances, which are stainless. We have new faucets, new style shower curtain rods, and two bedrooms have brand new smart strand carpet.
The front yard in the winter. The golf course is on the other side of this fence. Concrete pad here for playing basketball.

The front yard from the front porch of the house. The road you see here is our driveway, which runs alongside the golf course. (legal easement in place). This driveway has a deep strong base, and a solid top. NO dust blowing all over the place. The yard has plenty of shade, (Tom still plants trees every year). I have insisted some parts of the yard be full sun, so if you have kids like to play ball...there is room for that too!
Kitchen. This house has a very open floor plan.
One side of the living room.

More Living room. This view shows the open floor right next to the living room. LOVE THIS as I HATE being trapped in the kitchen.
The patio we put in three years ago. Very Large and INCLUDES a hot tub.
Back Yard
Back Yard north side. This photo shows the end the driveway...the actual road 1425 North ENDS at our house. This means you have no visible neighbors (outside of golfers). All three sides of the property open into wooded acreage that has no homes on it. (north and west sides are not able to be built on)
We've got plenty of room for an herb bed, and Tom has a HUGE garden, plus there is plenty of room for outdoor activity.
Comes with this wonderful tree stand, which is actually a giant tree house. Many deer have been killed from this tree stand.

We added the barn about 4 years ago. (approx40x60) This building has a workshop, a room that has stubbed in plumbing and wired, and storage space for TONS of junk...I mean tractors.
This home has been a happy place for our family to live. Could be a happy place for you too!

This home is listed with Remax Realtor Walt Steffen. You can contact Walt at 217-390-4686 or It is very important that you tell Walt you heard about this listing from me...Julie Creek. (

How said change was easy?
