400 W Main-Ferris, Carthage, IL 62321     $46,000 ~ Off Market


Located in a small village outside of Carthage, Illinois, with little more than a post office and a smattering of houses, this fixer upper farmhouse has many of its original interior elements still intact. The staircase, pocket floors, stained glass and hardwood floors are lovely, although the kitchen is depressing and there are no pics of the bathrooms. Something, though, attracts me to the rusty old barn set against the cornfield.
