This gorgeous & HUGE Victorian gem, wedged between St Louis & Columbia MO, has quite the Missouri pedigree! A US Senator spent some of his childhood here, visiting his grandpa, who was one of the state's most prominent residents!
Own a piece of Missouri history with this exquisite home meticulously crafted by business magnate A.P. Green! Built in 1893, this grand Victorian welcomes you with gracious porches, beautiful woodwork & English silk wallpaper. Come enjoy the perfect mix of old & new in 6400 SQUARE FEET of carefully renovated living space.
Sprawling over 3 stories, this unique home will WOW you with its soaring ceilings, luminous wood floors, rounded seating nooks, front & back stairs, colorful stained glass, and 5 fireplaces (wood, gas & coal). The private owner's quarters w/sitting room & covered balcony is one of 7 bedrooms with a full ensuite bath....4 of which can be rented out. You'll also love the large gourmet kitchen, efficient geothermal HVAC, detached garage, and updates to electric, plumbing & windows.
This was the longtime residence of "fire brick" magnate A.P. Green, who made Missouri's clay soil very famous and very valuable for its heat-resistant properties. This beautiful 3-story home was also "grandma's house" for former US Senator / MO Governor Kit Bond, who often stayed here as a child! (A.P. Green was his grandfather.)
Just minutes from Missouri Military Academy and Hummingbird Vineyard & Winery, and an easy drive to several other colleges and attractions, this property was a successful bed & breakfast up until recently, when the owners retired. They never used Airbnb but a new owner could probably attract even more business if they did!
This is also a popular spot for photo shoots, in a very visible location in the town of Mexico...about 90 minutes west of the St. Louis area. It has exquisite woodwork and original Victorian details, and numerous porches & special nooks that are quite insta-worthy!
This home has been lovingly preserved and updated, offering a truly perfect mix of old and new. So if you're itching for an old house / B&B adventure, at a property where somebody has invested a whole lot of $$ in the major systems and bones, and all you have to do is make it your own.....don't miss this one!!
This is a genuine slice of #MissouriHistory and a great opportunity! #ThatsMyMO #missouriwedding #missmissouripageant
