So much to appreciate about this c.1880 move-in ready property! You gotta love the original woodwork, including staircase, hardwood floors, fireplace mantel and French doors. Then there’s the living room ceiling and an original lighting fixture, exposed stone wall in the bathroom and the adorable, funky little kitchen.
I am hoping the vintage charcoal drawing of the woman is included. It reminds me of when we were buying our c.1915 foursquare. We bought it with contents from the 90-year-old daughter-in-law of the original owner, Captain Zadoc Sharpe. She had his large portrait stored down in the basement. I had visions of hanging it over the fireplace, but when we did our final inspection, the portrait was gone. She had sold it to a plumber, who was doing pre-sale work on the house, for $5. I was so disappointed.
Located in close proximity to downtown Fort Scott, this move-in ready property is ideal for a law office (as it is located directly across from the Bourbon County courthouse) or a beautiful residential home. Original hardwood floors and ornate details highlight the historic nature of this home. Law library is negotiable with purchase.
