Carthage Home & Hobby Farm
This is a flat out spectacular residence with 25 +/- acres, perfect for a hobby farm, horse ranch or just having a little room to spread out in the country. The historic, Victorian-style home sits off the road down a maple-lined driveway, boasting 22 rooms in over 8,000 square feet with amazing craftsmanship throughout. The acreage consists of pasture, trees and outbuildings which could be the perfect amount for horses or other animals. Plenty of room for new buildings for your needs and adding new fence as you see fit. The owners are willing to sell the house with either more or less acreage, so please call with any interest and we'll happily discuss your ideas.

The 22 room home was placed on the list of National Register Historic Places on August 29, 1983. This 3 story home has charm and character throughout 8,115 square feet, including 7 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, ballroom, sunroom, and basement with additional half bath.
Additional features include a wrap-around porch, five fireplaces, two separate stairways, clothes chute, large trunk closet and cedar closet, built-in book cases, gun closet, dinette/butler’s pantry with sink, stained glass and beveled and curved glass windows, many original light fixtures and several pocket doors throughout.
The woodwork in the home is phenomenal, including doors, trim, fireplaces and over 200 hand turned spindles in the main staircase leading up to the second and third floors.
The historic home was built by the same architect and is a close replica of the Phelps House in Carthage, which is used for weddings, tours and other events.
The house and 4-car carriage house are both made of spectacular Carthage Stone.
Additional outbuildings include a large grain bin, a large, metal storage building that has a sloped floor for grain storage and drying, as well as a large shop area, and a milking parlor with elevated sanctions, and a 120 year old well house. Several of these unique buildings could be converted to a different use for the new owner.
There are other smaller homes on the property currently being used as rentals for income, but could be used for additional family members, farm hands, etc.
This home was previously operated as a Bed & Breakfast, which could be another neat use for the property going forward.
Only a few miles from Carthage on blacktop. Acreage in the area is hard enough to find, let alone with a list of features like this.
The owners are willing to hear offers for the home with either more or less acreage. They currently own 240 +/- acres here which includes the 22 +/- acre lake. See additional listings or contact broker for details on other options for splitting acreage.
