Situated on 240 acres, the Historic Phelps Country Estate boasts over 8, 000 sqft of living space with 5 fireplaces (including one of bird’s eye maple in the master bedroom), 8 bedrooms and 3 full baths/2 half baths. Constructed from Carthage marble this home still embodies the distinctive characteristics of the late Victorian era with soaring ceilings, original decorative hardwoods, shapely windows and strategically placed stained glass windows to create a strong cross draft. Home features include a front hall for formal entrances with a sweeping front staircase and a tucked away back staircase for everyday chores. Beautiful parlor room with built-ins, incised fireplace and extensive dark wood paneling. Main level features formal dining room, true to its era sash bay windows and formal living room with more original built-ins and marble fireplace. Rooms are divided by large wood sliding pocket doors and original hardwood floors under carpet. Bedrooms on all levels. The third floor is dominated by a ballroom, but also offers a walk-in cedar closet and sunroom that captures the most amazing views of surrounding pastoral countryside! The Estate includes a 22 acre lake that is leased for geese and duck hunting and is stocked with bass, crappie, and catfish for daily pay to fish. On the 240 acres there are 2 additional rental homes as well as outbuildings that include a 4 car garage made of the same Carthage marble of the home. Outside is just as magnificent as the interior with a lengthy maple tree lined lane leading you to the carport and extensive marble wrap around porch. This home is being sold with all or part of the 240 acres which is mostly pasture but also includes habitat excellent for deer, turkey and small game.
This beautiful Country Estate is truly a stunning piece of history!
