1892 Queen Anne Victorian
Mount Vernon, MO

The McCanse House

This elegant, historic Queen Anne Victorian home also known as The McCanse House is a landmark beauty in Mount Vernon, Mo. The graceful home nestled among majestic maple, walnut, and oak trees is daily reminder of fine craftsmanship of days gone by.

The McCanse House, standing the test of time, is the signature home of historic McCanse Street named after a founding father of Mount Vernon. Today, the stately home serves as a lovely, turn-key, upscale Bed & Breakfast for travelers and guests looking for an unforgettable stay, and is operational on Airbnb.

With its eye-catching, steep gabled roof, ornate woodwork, and large covered wrap-around porch, the style and character is unlike any home one might find in the area. Inside, the beautiful Victorian may also serve as originally intended as a family residence featuring multiple living rooms and 4 bedrooms with bathrooms in each.

As you enter the grand foyer the architecture is breathtaking. A beautiful hardwood staircase, intricate detailed trim work, tall ceilings and windows welcome you each time you enter the front door. The formal dining room and living room feature an original fireplace which complements the comfortable entertainment space.

The newly remodeled and spacious kitchen offers the beauty of farmhouse sinks, new custom cabinets, upgraded lighting, marble backsplash and an attractive tile floor. The graceful, yet practical home also has a conveniently located pantry and laundry.

On the main floor, the home has one bedroom featuring a newly renovated bathroom with new walk-in marble tile shower. The spacious 2nd story of the home is complete with 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and vintage character. There is also a study room for peaceful reflection. Each story of the McCanse House has its own central heating and air unit.

The roof is only two years old, and caps nicely the grand Victorian landmark that has stood proudly on stunning Carthage stone for over 130 years.
