Tour this beautiful Chicago farmhouse

This farmhouse in the northern suburbs of Chicago might look familiar—because it was featured in the 2002 movie "Road to Perdition," along with several television commercials. It's easy to see why casting crews fell in love with the home, which sits on more than six acres of land. There's a sense of tradition and family in every nook and cranny.
The classic white exterior is meticulously maintained and boasts a porch complete with a swing.

Inside, the kitchen is warm and neutral. A country-style table blends in with cabinets, while vintage light fixtures add charm.
The living room is bright and classic, with traditional cherry furniture and red accents. The French doors allow light to pour in.
The den is more casual, with plaid upholstery and pine furniture.
A girls' bedroom is cheerfully quaint, with ruffled bedspreads and curtains. The former owners—a couple who had both been married previously—had 21 children between them, so multiple single beds in each bedroom are a must.
The home features meticulous landscaping and a gazebo. There's also a barn elsewhere on the property, where the current owners keep chickens. Overall, the farmhouse and its surrounding property are beautiful examples of a traditional lifestyle that's harder and harder to come by these days.
