Fixer upper alert in Kansas. Circa 1882. $40,000

March 29, 2019

This is definitely a fixer upper, but it has some nice original details! This home was built in 1882. It is located on .67 acres in Columbus, Kansas. High ceilings, original mantels, paneled pocket doors, and original hardwood floors. There are five fireplaces and four morning stoves throughout the home. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,498 square feet. $40,000

From the Zillow listing:


With foresight and careful civic planning, this architectural asset will not be lost and gone forever. This house’s splendid Victorian features (high ceilings, paneled doors, long and narrow windows) are tempered by a Colonial American influence which gives the house the solid and substantial aspect. The Italian moulding along the roof softens its blocky appearance. I invite you to step into a time capsule as you view the 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. You will also find 5 fireplaces and 4 morning stoves throughout. What an amazing adventure waiting here for you.
