Originally homesteaded by William Mulford and his family in the early 1820s, this property has served many purposes over the years. It was said to be used as a stagecoach stop between Chicago and Galena. A rare opportunity to own a piece of history on 5 acres in the heart of Rockford. The brick two-story sits up on the hill with a grand presence. As you enter the double doors off the front of the house, you’re greeted by a beautiful wood staircase and hallway leading you into the formal family room with tall ceilings, hardwood floors, and a fireplace. This flows nicely into the dining room area and the kitchen. There is a first-floor primary bedroom with access to the full bathroom. Upstairs are four good-sized bedrooms as well as a full bathroom. Two additional rooms in the rear of the upstairs could be offices or walk-in closets. The second staircase takes you down to the kitchen and dining room area. Outside, you have a large deck off the rear of the house that looks over the backyard and greenhouse. There are multiple entry points into the property. A nice circle drive up by the house that leads down to the barn. The barn has an access driveway on the east side of the property. The historic 86 x 44 barn has room for parking vehicles, a workshop, three stalls and two loft areas. The house is situated in the middle of the property. Two areas +/- of overgrown field on the west side provide additional opportunity. The unfinished lower level offers tons of storage. First floor laundry. Enclosed porch.
