One of a kind, stunning, 23 room Second Empire home located in historic Abilene KS, home of Dwight D Eisenhower. This stately mansion boasts as being one of the Eight Architectural Wonders of Kansas. Built in 1880 from native limestone, the Lebold Mansion has gone through a number of restoration efforts over the last several years.
The current owners have installed a high-end kitchen, updated the servant’s quarters bath with a steam shower, and fine tuned many of the details throughout the home. The grandeur of this Victorian home is found in the ornate, wallpapered ceilings and walls, the inlaid parquet floors, gilded detailing, and five story tower. The exterior features fountains, iron fencing, a spacious porch, and a carriage porch. This home is rich with history and would make a beautiful family home or a bed and breakfast.
