Did you know that Rockford's largest home has only three bedrooms?

When I saw the listing on Realtor.com for the home at 12529 Weldon Road in Rockford, I was blown away.

Going for nearly a million bucks, this place sits on a massive 10 acres of land and the home is a whopping 8,000 square feet.

So why are there so few bedrooms? Because everything is else is spread out and huge. That's why.


All brick and stone ranch home with open concept and wonderful views of the rolling countryside and woods and surrounded by hundreds of preserved conservation acres and ranch property...Stunning open rooms with heated floors and exposed beams, built-in professional-grade bar surrounded by walls of glass.

The home has this kind of restaurant or bar vibe when looking at the pictures. Think about the Machine Shed and the way that restaurant is laid out. That should give you a better idea of just how huge and spacious some of these rooms really are.

It's been listed at $999,999 for about 6 months and hasn't budged since but it does appear to have been once priced at $1.25M a few months before that.

To me, that means a competitive offer could land you this crib, and who knows, maybe you could start up a restaurant from inside your very own home. With 10 acres of land, there'd be plenty of space for parking.
