My New Home

I'm excited to move into this historical 1889 Italianate home next weekend in Fort Scott, Kansas. Located on the main street as you drive through town, this area has several restored Victorian and Italianate homes built in the late 1800's.

The Italianate Apartment

I feel very lucky to have found this apartment. Two separate residences are located in this home, and my unit is located on the ground floor. It is very large . . . 1,600 sq. ft. with two bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, bathroom with tub/shower, and laundry room that will provide plenty of space. Access to the basement, a single car garage in back, plus a private porch and back entry will be perfect for my needs.


Another tenant lives in the upstairs unit and we share the front door entry. Having not seen this unit in person, there may be some surprises upon arrival, but I think it will work well. Keeping myself on a very limited budget, it will be fun to decorate it with secondhand furniture and personal treasures.


Stay tuned next week for an update on this historical home.
