ABOUT THE FARMHOUSE CHIC INSPIRED PROPERTY 204 S. Fifth Street, Geneva This rare custom home located in Geneva’s Historic District offers an engaging blend of farm country comfort and Southern style architecture. To create a timeless look, the house has Southern elements like a gracious front porch with pillars and copper gas lanterns that evoke the elegance of a historic southern plantation. Farmhouse-inspired finishes such as wide plank hickory hardwood floors, sliding barn doors and tailored mill work enhance the country chic style. A wooden spiral staircase waits to take you to the two upstairs bedroom en suites. The open kitchen has appliances beautifully integrated into white custom cabinetry, polished nickel hardware and an over-sized island with a custom-built cart. Beamed ceilings open to an inviting family room with a 2-story limestone fireplace for cozy gatherings. Off the family room and through a glass door puts you right on their private blue stone patio showcasing the over-sized fireplace with surround seating. A sweet farmhouse mudroom corners the laundry room with hooks for your sunhats and baskets. All of this is just a short walk away from Geneva’s notorious Third Street and charming downtown which has over 100 specialty shops and many dining options. Living at 204 S. Fifth St., there is no need to find parking for downtown festivals and entertainment.


Megan Reno, Baird and Warner of the Fox Valley

After Megan took time off to be a stay-at-home mother, she knew her previous careers were not the right fit for her anymore. She had worked in interior design, home staging and home renovations so transitioning to a licensed real estate broker was a natural progression. Most rewarding for her is being able to help people with one of the most important financial and emotional investments of their lives. “My most precious award,” says Megan, “is that I have received five-star ratings from all of my clients.” Her favorite feature of this home is the downtown location and sitting on the big front porch.
