Rural Carthage Historic Home and Acreage
This historic, Victorian-style home was placed on the National Register Historic Places on August 29, 1983. It sits off the road down a maple-lined driveway, boasting 22 rooms in over 8,000 square feet with amazing craftsmanship throughout. The 3 story show place has charm and character throughout, including 7 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, ballroom, sunroom, and basement with additional half bath. 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 owners are willing to sell the house with more acreage or even different property boundaries, so please call with any interest in the home and we'll try to customize the acreage that works for you.
10 +/- acres (homestead, outbuildings and beautiful yard with maple trees and other hardwoods)
- Single Family
- 8,115 +/- sqft
- Built in 1904
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 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 or guest houses.
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 more 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.
