Location: Carthage, Missouri
This picture-perfect Italianate mansion in Carthage, Missouri, is the stuff of dreams. Built in 1881, the J.A. Mitchell House, as it’s known, preserves original architectural details and combines them with tasteful, modern updates, all swathed in vibrant colors and bold patterns that make this home a vision of Southern Charm.
Constructed from brick and stone, the historic residence measures just over 4,000 square feet and includes a formal parlor with two fireplaces, another sitting room (also with a fireplace!), gourmet kitchen, and an expansive screened porch.
Each of the four bedrooms takes on a personality of its own. The bright ensuite master suite, festooned with a light blue lattice wallpaper, includes a fireplace and a built-in wardrobe, while one room is painted a nautical blue, another nursery treated all in pink, and the fourth realized in a rich royal blue.
Sited on a half-acre at 903 South Main Street in the heart of town, the property is offered at an unbelievable $265,000.
