From the Zillow listing:


Take a step back in time. From the front door with the etched glass and hand turned door bell to the newel posts on the intricately carved staircase in the grand foyer, you will be transported back to the late 19th century, early 20th century when this grand home was built in the little town of Milltown, KY. Offered to you is a Victorian Farmhouse and old General Store building on 1.168 Acres. The home has over 2,500 square feet of living space with 3 to 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, formal dining room, formal living room, large kitchen, and utility room. The home has the original door knobs, hinges, art deco lighting, fireplace mantels, transom and stained glass windows— all the good stuff that you won’t always find in new builds today. Outside you will find a screened in porch off the kitchen and a wrap around porch with haint blue ceiling. The house has clapboard siding, metal roofing, scrolled gables, dentil mould trim work and a stone base. The yard is partially fenced with victorian iron fencing by Cincinnati Fence Company. A built on shed contains a Colt Acetylene Gas Generator which powered the home at one time. The old store building was one of three General Stores in the area which operated back in the early 1900’s. The store building has been partially torn down. The home is in need of renovation to bring it back to its former beauty. It has been vacant for a number of years and is selling as is.
