Save This House! Grand staircase! Circa 1860 in Missouri. $65,000

October 3, 2023

I love that grand staircase! It is very reminiscent of Thomas Day’s architectural work, but he wouldn’t have been up in Missouri. This home was built in 1860. It is located on .37 acres in Utica, Missouri. The home features double front porches, a grand staircase, hardwood floors, beautiful window surrounds, wainscoting, wide baseboards and chair rails. Love the old picture they included with the listing. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,900 square feet. $80,000 New price: $65,000
