One of the handsomest houses on the market.

A lovely usonian half way between Rockford and Davenport ... a man could retire to worse places and, being accustomeed to LA prices, it costs about what my garage could go for. I'm curious how you sell a house for $365K shortly after doing a $300K reno, but I guess that's the seller's thing to deal with ...

What I like about the interior detailing is its scale. No too skinny bits of trim in this muscular house.
