What a beauty! This handyman special is located in the small town of Wheeling, Missouri (pop.271), next to the c.1888 First Baptist Church and opposite the city park.
I was unable to find any history of the house, but perhaps the two front doors indicate one side was an office. Maybe it served as the rectory for the church next door at some point. In any event, the home must have been originally owned by a prominent member of the small community.
The c.1914 Classical Revival has so many original features which the realtor describes below. You can tell the house has been well maintained, but it does need a touch of TLC. I think the low price has more to do with the small town location than with the condition of the home.

Welcome to small town USA! Sitting across from the city park and beside a small church, this 1914 treasure is a handyman special, yet diamond in the rough. Columns and wrap around porch grace the front of this charming home.
The large, open foyer welcomes guests who have their first glimpse of the beautiful wooden staircase. The main level has open doorways with columns and intricate wood detail.
The hardwood floors that run throughout most of the house are completed by 10′ woodwork. Built-in columns framing the mirror enhance the beauty of the fireplace which becomes the centerpiece to the open flow between the parlor, living, and dining rooms. The many windows create a beautiful display of sunlight throughout the home. An updated kitchen, 1/2 bath and laundry complete the main level.
A large open landing can be found on the second floor as well as three bedrooms and a bath.
The covered balcony has a picturesque view of the city park. The craftsmanship of the 100+ year old home is superb. With a little TLC, this beauty will sparkle one again. Contact Laurie to view this special property! Built In: 1914 2018 Taxes: $433.40
