    I did not find a build date, looking at the details I’ll guess it’s 1900-1910. 1900

    I wasn’t expecting it to be so nice inside and I love the colors of the brick and stone outside. Needs a little work, but what a huge house and great sized lot for the price. And an elevator? How cool is that?

    Another great project house. It looks like the exterior needs more attention than the inside. That sun room resting on top of the front roof entryway would be the first thing to disappear. This is just my opinion but it doesn’t fit in with any of the architectural design of the house. The kitchen also appears to needs a better design concept but these types of upgrades are common when a new owner takes possession. The home is in a beautiful setting with a big yard to care for. When I see homes like this post, I sometimes wish they were in my locale so I would have an excuse to un-retire. Hopefully someone will see the historic value in this home and breath new life into it.

    It says that the age is 1900. So I’m assuming that means it was built in 1900? I found that on the Realtor site.

    Both sides of my family is from this area! OMG…. so tempting! I still have cousins around the area along with my families history. My Grandpa was from Milbank and was the Sheriff of Watertown, SD for many years. Oh…….

    Call me crazy but I love the little white sun room. I love almost everything about this home from the rooms to the bricks and the view. I would definitely have to change the kitchen, but the rest just looks like it needs a sprucing up. Love this house.

    Whaaatt! My car costs more. Shoot finally enough room for all my stuff. Who cares if it’s 20 below outside. Even a lake to do sit spins and axles on. Doesn’t get better than that.

    I just realized the kitchen is in the attic! Given that and the library/den looking space and the elevator I wonder if this home served as a business at one time?

      It was owned by the Douthitt family at one time. Mr. Douthitt had a canning factory for corn and some of the operation started at the house.

    I can’t get over the price for this house! Is there another kitchen we don’t see? I want to see more….

    Beautiful house…!!! Would have to work wonders on the kitchen and bathroom.

    Is this the Burnt Offerings house? I think I saw Mrs Aladice in the upstairs kitchen

    This house and two others were built close to 1900. They were built by the Gold brothers who owned the Bank in Big Stone until the crash in 1929. In the 1940’s and 50’s the hose belonged to the Dothitts (sp?). They owned or were part owners of the Big Stone Canning Company. All I f the outside white wood structure was added on in the last 30 years or so. There was a rumor that there was a tunnel from the garage to the house but I never was able to prove it, My mother was housepeeper there for a few years in the 1950’s. At the time the place was heated with steam heat from a boiler in the basement. An old house like that is poorly insulated so be ready for monster heating bills in the winter. The lake turns green and smelly every summer. The property is nice but that end of the lake is not desirable. A friend of mine was the yard boy in the 1950’s. He mowed that whole city block. It’s a fantastic buy if someone is willing to invest a few years of labor and lots of money to restore it to its original style.

    My intention is to move to SD as I have a number of friends there. Im looking for a home with similar interior, and they are difficult to find. Anyone have any ideas as to the problems this particular home is likely to have – has to be something major for that price. But, jeepers, I love it!

      Have someone look at this in person. We could tell you all the potential problems but it’s just guessing. Houses are not usually as good or as bad as they appear in listing photos.

      In the town of Wayne IL WAS a NEW home listed at 1.2 Million…finally sold for 450K the a couple years later sold for 285K. You can get lucky. There might not be any thing wrong with the place, other than its been empty awhile. If its empty. Go for it, buy the sweet home and make it yours!
