Description

Welcome to the Edwards House, a stunning Italianate-style residence, meticulously preserved and listed on the Historical Kansas Registry. Built in 1874, this grand two-story home is a masterpiece of 19th-century architecture and uniquely blends historic charm and modern comfort.

Marking the entrance to this grand estate, the stone gate posts lead to a long driveway, offering a glimpse of the home's historic grandeur. A large front porch greets you, inviting you to step back in time and enjoy the serene surroundings. Romantic and picturesque, the Juliet balcony sits elegantly above the double-door main entrance, adding a touch of classic sophistication.

The lower level retains much of its original integrity, with the room configuration reflecting the home's storied past. A long open entry hall, dominated by a straight-run staircase with a beautiful walnut railing, catches your eye as you enter through the front doors. Flanking the foyer, two front parlors each feature stunning fireplaces, perfect for cozy gatherings and elegant entertaining. The living room, separated from the formal dining room by original pocket doors, offers a seamless flow into the dining area, ideal for hosting dinner parties. The modern kitchen, complete with a large island and quartz countertops, provides ample space for culinary creativity. An adjacent office area and a second staircase, featuring a chair lift, ensure convenience and accessibility to the second floor.

Six spacious bedrooms and three full baths, along with an original clawfoot tub in the upstairs bathroom, offer comfort and historic charm. An additional three-quarter bath adds to the home's functionality.

Step outside to the expansive 1.5-acre lawn and discover a small cherry orchard in the southwest corner, along with a well-maintained garden and various fruit trees. At the back of the home, you'll find the original cistern, equipped with a pump that provides pure rainwater for your thriving garden, including herbs and roses in a small rock garden. The exterior also features access to the basement. Additionally, a historic sandstone barn, believed to predate Kansas statehood, now serves as a two-car garage and storage, preserving a piece of the property's deep history.

The Edwards House has a rich history, having served as The Oswego College for Young Ladies and the Kansas Military Academy, before returning to its roots as a single-family residence.

This exceptional property offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of Kansas history, combined with the comfort and convenience of modern living. Don't miss your chance to call the Edwards House your home. Contact Sara Kattenberg at 918.841.4246 to schedule your private tour today!
