Step inside the enchanting world of two of Carthage, Missouri’s Victorian mansions linked by a secret tunnel, yours for $2.1 million. Join us as we take a closer look at these two historic gems and explore the hidden connection that lies beneath the surface. Listing details: Enjoy privacy on your 12+ acre estate with not one, but two Mansions. Step back into a bygone era inside the 130+-year-old Victorian-era Carter Mansion dripping in period details. Original materials and finishes delight you inside, from stained glass windows, marble lintels, and intricate woodworking to crystal chandeliers and soaring ceilings, some with coffered beams, others with delicate lacelike ornament. When you need to travel to the second home, access the private underground walkway protecting you from the weathering outdoors.
In The Carriage House, vintage flourishes are everywhere, but many modern amenities include a security system, water softener and reverse osmosis system, and elevator. Stately brick facades and charming front porches with double entry doors greet you and your guests. Enjoy a private, gated drive, a gazebo, a pond, and a tree-lined lawn. Still, there is ample opportunity to add your own chapter to this historic property’s story. Possibilities abound, from a charming bed and breakfast to a corporate retreat to a grand family vacation compound.
