Welcome to the historic John Gregory house, a true masterpiece nestled on nearly a one-acre lot in Normal. This iconic home is a testament to meticulous restoration efforts, earning accolades as "the oldest and most scrupulous piece of architectural restoration within the town of Normal, the finest Italianate-styled structure in Normal, and one of the best in Central Illinois," according to the town and an Old House Society Historic Preservation award recipient. Every corner of this home showcases unparalleled attention to detail, from the basement to the cupola offering stunning 360-degree views of the town. Immerse yourself in the rich history of this home with hardwood floors, cedar closets, built-ins, unique architecture, wood stoves, and fireplaces throughout.

Outside, enjoy private gardens, professionally landscaped and maintained, along with rubber mulch and mature trees. The 18 Douglas fir trees provide year-round greenery, complemented by dianthus, rhododendrons, groundcover, rising sun redbud, two cherry trees, forsythia, and hostas that provide color all summer long.
