Rural History for SALE.  Many moons ago this property was a working farm operated by McPherson College… nowadays it's a nearly 6 acre private homestead on the outskirts of town.  The big red barn with concrete floors and a hoedown hay loft has plenty of room for both livestock and a workshop.  Various outbuildings include a metal building, lean-to, old granary… come see the history.  When the chores are done, come in and enjoy the modern comforts of this stately Craftsman home with its grand foyer, inlaid hardwood floors, original pocket and parlor doors, and period lighting.  The kitchen is power packed with abundant cabinetry, plenty of working surface and a walk-in pantry.  The newer addition of the attached oversized 2 car garage brought the laundry to the main floor, more storage and built-in desk; now creating a “flex” room that can be a bedroom, office, or library. The second floor offers another living area, 2 bedrooms, a hall bath, and private owners’ suite. Up on the 3rd floor, (favorite among teenagers) is another bedroom, ¾ bath, and a bird’s eye view of McPherson proper!  Don’t miss the unfinished basement complete with egress window (for yet 1 more bedroom), rec room, mechanical & storage rooms, and roughed in bathroom (tub/shower unit ready to install).  Modern comforts include radiant floor heat, central heat, central air, Manabloc plumbing, newer water well and a new roof on the house (before closing).  Call Kristi Fowler today for your appointment now!
