    Description

    Historic Grand Victorian mansion long home to a successful restaurant/banquet hall is ready for its new visionary. Built with great detail and craftsmanship dating back to 1891, this estate was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. With ownership of the past 40 years retiring, opportunity presents itself to reestablish as one of the county's premier wedding venue/bar/restaurants, or a number of other possibilities including an antique mall, car museum (located 1 mile from route 66), Air B&B, company retreat, etc. In addition to being so close to Route 66, being 2 doors down from the Dwight Amtrack provides easy access from the Chicagoland area. The main level features a 7,356 SF banquet room with space for 400 guests w/ adjoining bar, prep room, two ADA bathrooms. An additional 6,192 SF on the main floor include a large commercial kitchen, 4 dining rooms, full bar and lounge leading to outdoor patio with seating for social distancing and live entertainment. Outdoor weddings were popular on the 2.06 acre grounds with shaded seating & gazebo. The banquet hall backs up to the public 5 story Oughton Estate Windmill (a tourist draw from Rt 66 by itself) and park, which served as great photo backdrops at weddings & banquets. The second floor is 4000 SF and includes a small apartment, office, along with 11 sleeping rooms w/ 3 bathrooms once used as a boarding home. This space has potential for Air B&B, individual retail or antique suites, office space w/ conference rooms or an owner/caretaker live in arrangement. A large staircase leads up to the attic which could be finished similarly to the second floor or just serve as storage. The partially finished basement includes 2 more bathrooms and over 3000 SF more storage. This is an opportunity to bring your dream to life in a historic property that will grab the attention of your audience unlike any other.
