About This Old House
LOCATED HIGH ON A HILLSIDE OVERLOOKING HISTORIC CLARKSVILLE AND THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER this circa 1920 Cape Cod style home awaits someone who wants to complete a total renovation. The large lot and panoramic view of the Mississippi River and the good bones of this home make it a worthy candidate to be renovated. The previous owner started a major renovation project so much of the structural work is completed. The staircase and framing for the interior walls are in place. New French doors lead to the deck and a million dollar view.
This sleepy little early 19th Century river town that was in its heyday when steamboats ruled the Mississippi was awakened by the arrival of new settlers. In the 1980s Clarksville was discovered by artists and antique dealers as a place with much of its 19th Century charm intact. Its old storefronts became ideal places for art galleries, stores for resident craftsmen who produce the next generation’s antiques, and fine antique shops and restaurants.
Many of these artisans lived in the loft like spaces above their galleries and storefronts. As the town’s artist colony grew, it became a vacation destination with several fine B & B’s and restaurants to compliment the galleries and boutiques. In addition to the art and the antiques, the Mississippi draws boaters and kayakers.
