Elkhart, Kansas

Enchanting English Cottage

Front of home
Front of home
The home sits on 2+ lots providing a large tree covered front and back yard. The siding is stucco and the roofing consists of light concrete shingles.
With its ivy covered stucco walls and picturesque roofing, this cottage was one of the first homes to extend a welcome to those entering the tree-covered “Silk Stocking Row” of this rural farming community. The Mayberry house was the pride of the town's leading business man, rancher, and politician. He built this home in 1932, then remodeled and enlarged it in 1948, giving it the English cottage appearance that endears it to the community today.
