Oh this is a house of my dreams for sure. I’m fantasizing about the possibility as I write. Darn family, always getting in the way . . .

It’s the elevator. I supposed it could double as a dumbwaiter if you wanted to make the trip to the elevator from the kitchen…

I would be hesitant to use it as an elevator. But I would use it as a dumbwaiter. How handy would that be?

Kansas is the only state I know of which gives grants to qualified historic properties.

My 1894 house received two $90K Heritage Trust Fund grants.

could the grant be used to restore the house?

Wow………..so large and so much potential!! I wonder if it was built to be a funeral home or something originally…..given that it has that elevator. Excellent price too. Someone WILL fulfill their dreams with this one!

Oh I’m sure not built for that. Many many med-western families were quite prosperous, and this then modern and luxurious home was built for one of them at their apex in fortune.

OMG! I love it! Especially the elevator since both my daughter and I use them. I hope someone grabs it and cleans her up good!!!!

Any fireplaces?

See photo number 5, there is glimpse of the fireplace and mantle, seems to be the Arts & Crafts style. A real home has to have a fireplace, or if not a nicely placed wood stove with glass doors

Showed my friend and she jokinly said I should call and see if they would give me the house for free as my last name is Nickerson. LOL. Great bone structure. Wish I could afford the house and the amount of work it would need to make it truly livable.
