Gorgeous House Built By A Local Blacksmith

This house is a story about love. The local blacksmith made it for his wife, and there are stones in the shape of hearts all around the outside. He put a sixth heart-shaped stone over the fireplace after he added on to the house. He took the stones from the train stop to the building site with his horse and buggy. In 1930, the house was built. It is in Centertown, Missouri, on half an acre. The house has a covered front porch, beautiful hardwood floors, furniture that hasn’t been painted, and a claw-foot tub. Right across the road from the house, you can get to the river. It is 2,002 square feet and has four bedrooms and three baths. $189,900

From the Zillow listing:

This grand house is a beautiful mix of the old and the new, with touches from the past and from today. To really enjoy all of this home’s beautiful features, you have to see it in person. Starting with the beautiful wrap-around porch, beautiful flower gardens, vintage carriage house, and beautiful waterfront, this large property has a lot to offer for your pleasure. When you get inside, you’ll be surprised by how much natural light flows through the many big rooms. There are two living rooms, a formal dining room, and a family room with a half bath and a wood-burning stove that could also be a beautiful main bedroom! There is a large screened-in side porch off the dining room that is big enough for a hot tub or an outdoor eating set. The huge kitchen has exposed wood beams, a large pantry with a barn door, a ladder to one of the bedrooms upstairs, and large windows in just the right places to take in the view of the garden. A set of stairs lead up from the kitchen to a big loft area with built-ins. It is being used as a bedroom right now, but it could be used in many other ways. Also on the main floor are a bedroom, a full bathroom, the laundry room, and an entire studio apartment. This space could also be used as another bedroom or an in-law suite. Ascending the stairs, you’ll find two big bedrooms, two more bedrooms with double rooms, and another full bathroom. You shouldn’t miss out on seeing this one for yourself!
