This MAJESTIC, meticulously maintained, two-story brick Italianate sits on 19+ picturesque acres in historic Lexington Missouri. Malinda Hall, as it is known, has long been an historic landmark that inspires imagination with its grand architecture, long secluded driveway, beautiful park-like setting, guest house, horse facility, and an enchanting 1840’s log cabin. The main house features 2 large bedrooms and 2.5 baths, three separate living areas, and formal dining room. A third bedroom, living room, full bath and kitchenette is located in the adjacent guest house, which would also make an ideal Airbnb, mother-in-law quarters, or office. The house boasts a STUNNING spiral staircase as you enter the home, and beautiful wood flooring throughout. Upstairs, you will find two large bedrooms, each with its own full bath, as well as laundry facilities. Turn on the gas fireplace in the master bedroom and delight in romance. The primary bedroom’s bathroom offers a claw foot tub and a recently installed large shower space. On the main level, three more fully-functional wood burning fireplaces are the epitome of old world charm. The remarkable 1700’s era wood burning hearth in the kitchen presents an enviable esthetic, combined with the modern conveniences of stainless steel appliances, a double oven, a quaint reading nook and more. The gorgeous atrium frames the sunset and provides a great view of your horses. The drive-through 50×50 horse barn has running water and electricity, configurable stalls and a tack room with two entrances. The land is fenced and cross fenced. The dense woods framing the exterior fence line turns the entire property into your own private retreat. The restored historic log cabin is tucked away from modern life in it own cove of trees. This rustic cabin was originally built in the 1840’s and has a fully functional, large wood burning fireplace.  It has a special story behind its origin and could be utilized as part of an Airbnb experience, event space or simply your own getaway. The property also has an original 1880’s brick root cellar, a HUGE platform deck off the back of the main house, a pond and an orchard.  The provenance is rich with this beautiful home and property. The main house was built by renowned architect John Ellison Cheatham and named for his wife, Malinda, and it was their primary residence until 1899. Cheatham had his hand in designing and/or building hundreds of homes and public buildings in mid-to-late 1800’s Lexington. The house was listed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1993.  It was also used in the 1999 film ‘Ride With The Devil’, a movie about the civil war in this area, starring Toby Maguire. This truly magical property is now looking for its next steward to enjoy the special combination of history, classic architecture, and picturesque grounds, and to share with future generations to come.
