702 W. Cherry received a preservation Award from the City of Carbondale in 2004. A Craftsman style house built in 1927, it is part of the historic street scape that includes Tudor Revivals, Dutch Colonial revivals, Queen Ann and Cape Cods. On the corner of Cherry and Forest is the Buckminster Fuller Dome, the last home that Fuller occupied.

Painted in exterior period colors of buff and green trim, the house has three bedrooms and two full baths. There is a house wide sun room in the front, and a house wide living room in addition to a formal dining room. The kitchen has been updated to include a five burner DCS high thermal cooktop and a GE Profile 36" convection oven. There are granite countertops. At the end of the kitchen is a dining alcove. The bathrooms have been upgraded and are all tile with wooden cabinets and travertine and granite counter tops.

A special feature of the house is a finished basement with a 40' by 12' working space fitted with counters and 12 separate electrical outlets. The area is currently used as a library, office and computer workspace. There is also a fully equipped photographic darkroom.

The neighborhood where the house is located is one of the most desirable in Carbondale. It is a favorite of professors at SIUC and professionals. The house is 4 blocks from Memorial Hospital and 4 blocks from SIUC. Within walking distance is Schnucks Grocery, banks, downtown, and other services.

The house is zoned R-1, which means no more than two unrelated adults may live there.
