Love the vintage light fixtures! Circa 1915 in Kansas. $168,000

January 2, 2024

I want everyone of those vintage light fixtures! The built-ins are nice too! The house was built in 1915. It is located on .26 acre in Downs, Kansas. The house features a large covered front porch, some hardwood floors, built-ins, window seat, vintage light fixtures, baseboards, crown moulding and french doors. There is an attached garage. The sink placement seems a bit strange in the kitchen. I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,673 square feet. $168,000
