Under $100K Sunday – Small Town Iowa Gothic Revival on 2.8 Acres Under $85K – Gorgeous Ceilings ~ Off Market

120 N Everitt St, Mitchell, IA, 50461     $84,900 ~ Off Market 

OHU50K NOTES

This beautiful Gothic Revival home sits on 2.8 acres in the tiny village of Mitchell, Iowa. Mitchell is nestled along the Cedar River, but according to the map, this home is not in the flood zone.
What bothers me is the agent’s remark,  “This property would make a great building location or put your own touch on this classic home and bring it back to life.” I hope he is not suggesting knocking this beauty down for a new build. That would constitute old house heresy. The ceilings are simply gorgeous as is the molding! Looks like they may have been holding an estate sale in there, so look past all the stuff.

REALTOR COMMENTS

Hard to find in town acreage along hard surfaced road. This Gothic Revival home boasts 2.8 acres, new well in 2010, new furnace in 2012, and is hooked to natural gas. The electrical has been updated in the kitchen and bathroom. This property would make a great building location or put your own touch on this classic home and bring it back to life. Call now and see all this property has to offer!

    A dear friend of mine owned this house for about 60 years and I spent many summers painting the outside and making small repairs. The place was built in the 1860s and the walls are the most solid you could ask for, my friend said the man who built the house owned a lumber mill and certainly spared no expence in materials. It’s had some badly built additions over the years but the original structure is intact, complete with servant’s quarters that havent been changed in 100 years. I spent so many happy times in this house with my dear friends and I truly hope that the new owner will be willing to do the work to restore this beautiful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as my friend did for so many years.

    P.S. If the new owner is really ambitious, all the woodwork in the main rooms downstairs and the staircase is solid walnut under that white paint, or so my friend told me. Good luck!
