Description

OWN AN EXQUISITE PIECE OF SCHULENBURG HISTORY! For the first time in its 115-year history, the fabulous Merrem Mansion, as its been known to locals for generations, is on the public market! Boasting three levels and approximately 5000 sf of living space, it also contains a summer kitchen in the back accessed by glass bifold doors, @2000 sf of an above-ground basement, and stunning glass-walled porches front and back. Located on two beautiful acres with mature trees and chickens, the uniqueness and grandeur of this home must be seen to be appreciated. This home's leaded, curved glass has been appraised at over $180,000 alone. The original rewired lighting fixtures are magnificent, as are the exceptional ceilings in the library, dining room, and formal entry. Original pulley windows in this home were all taken apart, reworked, reassembled, and replaced by the current owner. The entire house has been rewired, insulation blown in, original floors uncovered where needed, and style-appropriate shutters specially built and installed. Three large, curved, restored window seats are functional and beautifully made. The original irrigation system was completely dug up and replaced, keeping the back lawn and trees flourishing. With its correlated beauty and design, the spectacular staircase and landing lead to the upper floor. Running almost the entire length of the house, it contains a huge open living area with three stunning stained-glass doors that lead to an elaborate, house-length balcony. An extra-large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom is located at the south end. Whether youre looking for a fabulous home to raise your family or peaceful retirement home located near the center of our lovely small town, this gem deserves a look!
