December 2, 2018

The woodwork in this house is pretty amazing! Love the mantel with the bookshelves! Built in 1882. Located on .58 acres in Fort Scott, Kansas. Perfect wrap around porch. The listing says five pocket doors. Not sure if they mean five sets? Either way, it’s a beautiful house! Not so sure I am feeling the kitchen though. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 3,633 square feet. $255,000

From the Zillow listing:


Owner’s took much pride in restoration of this large Victorian home built in 1882. This elaborate dollhouse definitely appeals to the romantic Victorian idea with trademark fashion, architecture and beautiful furnishings. You’ll find hardwood and marble floors, bay windows, Eastlake woodwork, large wraparound porch, 5 pocket doors, 4 fireplaces, stained glass, chandeliers, a magnificent stairway in entry and much, much more.
