WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE HOME
This beautiful and stately antebellum home is listed in the Library of Congress. Even in such a historic area as the Missouri River valley of Howard, Saline and Boone Counties, a home like this is rare: a restoration that left so much of the original, with additions that allow for comfortable 21st century living. The location is an additional asset, just 32 miles from central Missouri’s financial and cultural hub, Columbia, home of the University of Missouri, 4 major hospitals, fine dining and shopping, etc. Also within minutes drive are Boonville, Fayette and New Franklin.
