From the Zillow listing:


Truly a one of a kind property located in Garnett, KS! Built around 1871, this Italianate style house is one of the oldest standing buildings in Anderson county, though you wouldn’t guess it by the great shape it’s in! The property sits on .4 acres on a quiet street and features 6 outbuildings including a 20×24 Garage with a lean-to/car port, the original milk house, the original carriage house, a chicken coop with electricity, a large indoor/outdoor dog kennel, and another outbuilding the sellers intended to renovate into an apartment. The property also has mature peach and apple trees. The house itself has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and has unique features such as a cupola, a front porch that runs the length of the front facade, and a walkout balcony on the second floor. Elaborate jigsaw work, scrolled brackets, and lentil moldings also ornament the home. The sellers added a solar energy system to the property in April 2018 with transferable rights. Selling in its present condition.
