Custom-Built Home in High Point Subdivision - 451 E High Point Dr, Peoria

This well-designed ranch home in High Point Subdivision was custom-built in the mid-20th century by Henry Slane, the former publisher of the Peoria Journal-Star, for his young family. From the “quill pen” weathervane on the roof, to the large living spaces, to abundant built-in storage throughout, this home was carefully crafted for gracious entertaining and comfortable living. The home features 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths on almost an acre of park-like property. Once inside this quality-built home, you will see the sprawling 3,200 plus square feet on the main level offers 2 fireplaces, newer hardwood floors, kitchen that is perfect for gatherings and entertaining, the family room with floor-to-ceiling windows and view of large backyard patio and stone walkway. Several of the home’s bedrooms could easily transform into quiet and secluded spaces for work-from-home. The mid-century modern architectural style offers many hidden features we would love to show you! And the grand finale – well, you will just have to schedule a tour today to see it in person!
