About 214 South State Street

Welcome to 214 S State St, one of Elgin, IL's most prestigious historical homes, known as the Pelton Mansion. This Victorian gem was built in 1889 by Dr. Pelton and has only had two families as owners. Registered with the National Historic Society, it has been part of many Elgin National Historic Walk-throughs over the decades. The mansion features stunning architectural details, including stick style, clapboard siding, projecting gables, and sculptured chimneys in East Lake style. The interior boasts a beautiful array of woods, including carved oak, light birch, sycamore, knotty pine, birds-eye maple, yellow leaf pine, and gum wood. The home's original footprint remains intact, with only a few alterations, like the removal of the wall separating the reception parlors and the transformation of the solarium into a family room. Inside, you'll find 10-foot ceilings, a grand rounded staircase with exquisitely carved Victorian newel posts, and numerous original lighting fixtures, pocket doors, and casement windows. The three-level masterpiece features 8 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, 3 fireplaces, and a Pittsburgh toilet in the basement. The first level includes an enormous reception parlor with wood floors and a marble-surrounded fireplace. The dining room showcases a coffered ceiling, antique lighting, vintage wallpaper, and pocket doors leading to the former solarium. The kitchen and butler's pantry maintain their original charm, complete with vintage stove and fridge. The second level has several bedrooms, some of which could serve as primary suites, along with bathrooms and a powder room. The third level features more bedrooms, each with walk-in and suitcase closets. The home also includes a two-story carriage house with ample parking space for at least six cars, as well as an unfinished second level awaiting your creative touches.
