From the Zillow listing:

The Shugart House is an important part of Marion. It was built more than 175 years ago and looks even better now. The downstairs of the house is very big and bright, with an old-fashioned hall, an office with built-in bookcases, a newly remodeled full bathroom, and a living room with brick floors. The kitchen has brick walls, appliances made of stainless steel, and beautiful, custom-made cherry cabinets. Upstairs, there are three large rooms that have just been painted and have good closet space, which is rare in 1800s houses. In fact, because this house was part of the Underground Railroad, the frame in the southernmost room hides a place where the Shugarts hid slaves who were trying to get away. The second floor also has two full bathrooms. The attic Loft Space has a lot of empty space that could be a 4th bedroom or bonus room. For the weekend mechanic or carpenter, a big two-car garage and a large shop with lots of built-in cabinets are perfect. The mature pine and walnut trees on the nearly one-acre lot make it a great place to enjoy the outdoors in private. There are shops, bars, and IWU all within a mile. 90% of the big-ticket things can be taken care of with a new roof, air conditioner, heater, and plumbing. The sunsets are out of this world!!
