A BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED 19TH CENTURY ITALIANATE

The home was built in 1855 as a single family dwelling in Centralia, Illinois; it is an italianate style which predates the Victorian Era.

The owners of the Centralia Garden Estates Bed and Bath are Pete and Tammy Donnelly, who have both lived in Centralia most of their adult lives. They purchased the house for their home and raised their two daughters and two sons there. Pete owned his own construction business in Centralia and did all of the renovation on the home himself. When Pete closed his business, he became an instructor at Kaskaskia College, a community college located in Centralia. Tammy owned and operated a dog grooming business for 32 years and has always enjoyed home decorating as a past time.

After raising their children, they decided to downsize and move to a smaller home. In 2011, Tammy and Pete converted their large italianate home into a bed and bath, creating a lovely restful oasis for guests.

They are looking forward to serving you!
