    Homes of Distinction- The Lindley Mansion 1886

    A beautiful Victorian Mansion in the heart of Missouri

    Just sold…March 2020.

    A friend asked me to help them sell their beautiful 133 year old mansion.

    It had me thinking about how many other beautiful and often substantially built homes were waiting to be found by new caring owners.

    This house has been lovingly maintained and tastefully improved over the past few years.

    Reputedly one of the first homes in Nevada built with bathrooms and gas lights ( which were changed once electricity was available).

    Originally the family entertained on the third floor where guests danced the night away.

    Later when the staircase was blocked off to accommodate an extra bathroom with closet a secret room was created which still exists to this day.
