WOW! Your chance to own a piece of Barry County History! This amazing Victorian style home sits on over half an acre! The home is truly part of Cassville history having been built in 1895 for the daughter of John Bayless. This home has some really amazing carved wood trim and hand rails that would make any history buff happy to see. The home is located just minutes away from Cassville Golf Club, and Roaring River State Park. It would make a great B&B.

    On the site in 2016. Someone mentioned there were talks about tearing it down, glad to see it still standing…for now.

      In the 2016 listing, it looks as if there’s a pretty double glass paned door going out to the little turret porch. The cost of dumpster removals and the heavy labor to take way all the siding, carpet, wallpaper and kitchen – this home could start back towards lovely. The good points seems to get lost in those things. Once the updates are removed, things could take a turn for original beauty and restoration.

    There are even more photos here on Zillow. Check out the “hot pink” walls! Sad to see what looks to me to be so many “updates” that have spoiled the original home.

    Oh, and check out the street view on Zillow. Right next door is the Barry County Jail. The other side are some large gray industrial looking buildings. Nothing much to look at across the street either. Too bad…this is the best-looking thing on the block.

  4. Definitely needed my glasses for the last attic picture! Looked like a ghost standing there! Then zoomed in and saw a concrete support! Lol 😂

    I love that stair railing. I’m glad the home is still there and they haven’t painted over all that great trim and doors!

    The defining words for this house keep coming. LOVE the doors, woodwork, and that furniture. In 45 years I’ve only seen one complete french cut velvet sofa and chair set in that condition. I missed the other one by 5minutes at an estate sale. And there’s a sweet rocker on the first couple of pics of the interior. Love the walk-up attic. This queen could be amazing. Cassville has certainly got some hidden gems. I will have to visit on my ventures this summer.

    Hello old friend! A bit sad to see this house still awaits someone to rescue this architectural damsel in distress. With the open balcony porch atop the tower I cannot help but think of the Romeo & Juliet analogy. Only a small percentage of towered Queen Annes had this open balcony porch design. Where it is present, the views from this height never fail to be picturesque. (except of the Jail of course) Disappointing to learn about more recent inappropriate updates but smaller towns around the country are not customarily places where purist type restorations are common. I can only keep my fingers crossed for this one and hope its days of waiting for someone to save it are few. It would be sad to lose it, but difficult to sell houses located in smaller communities are frequent targets of demolition.

      looks like they’ve been trying to sell it for a long time.
      i adore this house, and the area, though property high-crime, is picturesque.
      the jail next door should make it safer right there if anything..

    I can live with the kitchen and wall paper for now. I’d put all of my resources into restoring the floors and finishing the attic into the awesome master suite it wants to be.

    I found an old book online that has a illustration of the house with the original front porch. I added to my profile picture album. I thought the porch didn’t look quite right. I would definitely remove the kitchen/family room side addition and then move it to a better more residential lot.
