Property Description

The best of both worlds and rich in history are these stunning prominent Victorian style twin mansions located in historic Carthage MO. Carter's Bluff/John A Carter House has been restored with great sensitivity. All windows and doors have lintels of Carthage Marble. Gorgeous stained and beveled glass and smooth gray marble fireplaces are outstanding. Exceptional period details and architectural elements captivate throughout this beautifully restored home from the ornate woodwork detail to the grand 12-ft ceiling entrance with crystal chandelier and original refinished hardwoods. Elegant formal dining with solid wood pocket doors, crown molding and wainscoting. Charm is abundant inside and out from the inviting wrap-around porch to the transom windows throughout most of the home. Outside you will find an equally charming property with a gazebo that features a Liberty Tree dated back to 1776. The Carriage House, built in 2002, is connected via 53 feet of underground tunnel. Making your way through the Carriage House property you will appreciate the thought and detail with which it was built. Architectural details are as one expects with crown molding, antique hardware, chair rails, stained glass windows, coffered ceilings, and arched woodwork. The gorgeous eat-in Chef's Kitchen on main level boasts exotic granite countertops, eating bar and floor-to-ceiling double-sided fireplace with large living area on opposite side. Take a ride on the elevator to your very own Beauty Parlor on the 2nd floor. On the 3rd floor you will discover a theater room and ball room area. The immaculate grounds feature a train depot, train caboose, maintenance building, and octagonal gazebo. This one-of-a-kind property is a MUST SEE to truly capture all the nostalgic beauty, and experience the laid-back small town lifestyle.
