This could be an amazing house! It is a former school house. The school was built in 1900. It is located on 1.15 acres in Mount Vernon, Indiana. The property features a small covered front porch, hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, bead board walls and a spacious kitchen space. There is an attached garage. There is a large basement and a bell tower. I would try to undo some of the past renovations. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms and 5,128 square feet. $171,200
