c. 1883 Southern Colonial
Humboldt, KS

Beautifully Preserved

A rose-lined sidewalk leads to the grand large four column front porch of this historical home. It was built in 1883 by one of the early settlers and businessmen of Humboldt. For the last 60 plus years, only two families have owned this beautiful home.

The original open walnut staircase, large arched doorway between the two front parlor rooms, high ceilings, crown molding, door transoms, ceiling medallions and antique light fixtures fill the home. The gourmet kitchen has a 48 inch stainless steel Thermador Professional gas range, pot filler faucet, wine cooler, and a Bunn coffee maker with a direct waterline. There is a breakfast bar, eat in kitchen and a formal dining room, as well as laundry areas on the 1st & 2nd floors. A Wonderful sunroom off of the kitchen to relax or watch TV.

The current owners have spent years restoring and updating the home. It has been insulated, rewired, all new plumbing exterior painted in 2019 and a new roof was installed about five years ago. Refinished oak floors & new light switches too. Each floor has its own central air and heat system. A wireless outdoor video security system and wired smoke alarm and carbon monoxide system helps keep this home safe. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms. Three bathrooms are __ensuite__ including the one attached to the first floor bedroom.

The home sits on a 1.17 acre shaded corner lot with a garden area, fruit and nut trees. This property would make a wonderful home or bed and breakfast.
