I love this! And it is livable right now. This home was built in 1880. It is located on .51 acres in Hermann, Missouri. That looks to be an original slate roof and I love the lightning rods! There are original hardwood floors, molding and trim, French doors, mantels and stained glass windows. Six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 7,511 square feet. $150,000

Online Real Estate Auction Here is your opportunity to own a beautiful Victorian home full of historic value in the quaint town of Hermann, Missouri! This home is ready to come alive with the help of some willful fixer uppers or rehabbers. Much of the original Victorian character and elements of the home have remained intact, including dark hardwood floors, historic trim work inside and out, multiple fireplaces with ornate mantles and decorative tile, French doors, multiple parlours, stained glass windows, high ceilings, wainscoting, and unique fixtures. The interesting and intricate layout of the home produces lots of cozy nooks, additional rooms, and multiple staircases which are all common in Victorian buildings. The third floor has been finished into a wonderful and bright space which would be perfect as an additional bedroom, office, or play room for the kids. Overall, this home has amazing potential to be restored to its original glory, but is livable right now.
