Incredible historical property at nearly 100 years old in the Heritage Area of Grayslake seeks new owners to move right in or bring restorative vision. Formerly Dr. Herbert Rankin Struthers' home and office, you'll be impressed by the condition and character at 12 Park Avenue just off of Lake Street one block south of Center. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath property is a charmer with multiple rooms, nooks and crannies for adventure. Beautiful, original trim work tells the tales of time in incredible condition- 6" baseboards, dark stained original doors, hardwoods throughout most of the first floor- the stories this home could tell! On the main floor, enjoy soaring ceilings, oversized living and dining room, and bright sun room. In the kitchen, original floor to ceiling cabinets and apron sink charms with updated appliances and a few other updates including flooring and added cabinets.

What an opportunity to own a piece of Grayslake history!
