314 High St Boonville, MO 65233

Sometimes there is just one room in a house that makes you lust for it. This house has a bathroom that I’m in love with. 
Obviously you cannot live in a bathroom and thankfully I seriously dig the rest of this home too!

This one-of-a-kind Italianate Victorian beauty has many unique features that you must see to appreciate. Legend has it that the bathroom on the main level was the first indoor bathroom in Boonville. Scenes from Venice, painted by muralist Richard Tennys, accent the walls above embossed tile imported from Italy. The brass-footed marble stand holds a hand-painted porcelain sink, and two stained glass windows bring in an array of colors from the late afternoon sun. The tiled floor, claw-foot tub, and circular shower are original to the house. The kitchen, an early 20th century addition, was renovated in 2000, and has a full-sized walk-in pantry. The butler's pantry between the kitchen and dining room gives added space for china, crystal, etc. Two spacious bedrooms redecorated in 2013, a bathroom remodeled in 2012, and a walk-out balcony overlooking the Missouri River are featured on the second level. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the original structure was built in 1869. The details on the main level speak to the care and attention the house has received over nearly a century and a half of ownership. Woodwork in each room is crafted from a different kind of wood from the adjacent rooms, and a special highlight is the Birdseye Maple that adorns the formal dining room. Transoms above the doors, detailed trim, and pocket doors between the parlor and family room add warmth and charm to this well-loved home. One of a kind this Italianate Victorian home stands out on historic High St. There are 3 bdrms, 2 baths, formal dining, parlor & living room. The large eat-in kitchen has a built-in butler's pantry as well as a large open pantry. Home to the first indoor bathroom in Boonville. Located close to MKT Trail and historic bridges. There are many recent updates (see Seller's Disclosure under documents)
