This iconic Russell, KS home built originally by the Wentworth's stands strong having survived 107 years of Kansas wind and weather. The stately grandeur of this home is embraced by a beautiful wrap around porch perfect for reading or watching unparalleled Kansas sunsets. Complemented by the simplicity of rural culture and organic amenities such as a golf course, walking trail, art museum, and movie theater, guests can restore body and mind during their stay. The first floor has 3 covered entrances - 2 off the wrap around porch and one off the driveway in the back. The driveway wraps around the east and south sides of the home with entrances from Fossil or 4th Street. This not only creates efficient flow of access, it also creates abundant parking opportunities for guests. Main floor highlights of this home include beautiful woodwork, wood floors, antique light fixtures, leaded and stained glass windows, tall 10' tin ceilings, pocket doors, and a butler's pantry -all original to the home. The Parlor room features an imported gas burning fireplace, and the Library or "Bar" room includes a built in refrigerator and "spirits" closet, as well as additional storage for games and entertaining supplies. The half bath on the main floor can be accessed from the Library/Bar, Kitchen, or Dining room. The Butler's pantry nestled in between the Kitchen and Dining room provides a counter for self-serve coffee/tea service along with abundant storage for serving pieces, refreshments, and supplies. The Kitchen includes a gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and the "ice" box original to the home that is currently used for dry goods storage. The second story can be accessed by two separate staircases including one from the Kitchen so late night snacks can be a secret! The foyer staircase warmly invites guests to the next level on wide wooden steps. The second floor of this home offers 4 large bedrooms - one with pocket doors that can divide the room into 2 spaces - perfect for families with small children or a separate seating area for the bedroom. The East bedroom features private balcony seating for those that appreciate the beauty of the morning sunrise. A large 2nd floor bath with a tub/shower will accommodate all the guests. The second floor also provides a large laundry/dressing room featuring a stacked washer/dryer unit, vanity/sink and oversized closet for storage.
