Property Description

Travel back in time in the Village of Elsah at the Ward-Rockabrand Home built circa 1858, by Clement J Ward. With quiet streets and a true Americana feel, Elsah is known as the "Village Where Time Stood Still." Located within minutes of Grafton, Illinois, a true destination town right on the Mississippi River. This picture perfect stone home offers a cozy feeling with ample space with 5 beds & 3 baths. The Rockabrand Family, long-time professors of Principia College, added the 2-story addition in 1985 and the modern amenity of a 2-car garage that is attached at the rear of the home. Enjoy the charm of the back patio or the covered front porch to capture a glimpse of the past. Immerse yourself in nature and plenty of outdoor activities nearby, including hiking at Pere-Marquette State Park, boating or fishing on the Mississippi or Illinois Rivers, or take a splash at the nearby waterpark. With multiple attractions nearby this property has great potential as a vacation rental or business.
