If you have often thought of having your own bed and breakfast inn, there is a great opportunity to purchase a truly historical mansion that has already been structurally converted, and operated, as a successful B&B. The owners are selling due to health reason, not the lack of devoted guests!
The property is a fully restored Queen Anne, Victorian mansion that was built in 1892 by W.C. Ellis, owner of the Ellis & Son lumber mill. Ellis was also co-founder and president of the Kelly Canning Company, which was later named Iowa Canning Company, and at the time was considered the largest operation of its kind in the world. At the turn of the century, there were two banks in Vinton, Ellis was president of one bank and vice president of the other. His home was as impressive as he was.
As you can imagine, this historic mansion has long been an important property in the community, and now, the opportunity is available to purchase it.
This immaculate and unique property is move-in ready and located in the Iowa village of Vinton. There are six bedrooms and seven baths, a professional kitchen, a formal dining room, living room, foyer, piano bay and beautifully restored woodwork. The basement is finished with a two bedroom apartment.
New roof, new chimneys, and a new oversize two-stall garage are just a few of the extras you’ll find. For full details contact the realtor, Connie Barnes at (319) 981-6221 or (319) 472-5353. To view photos and more information, go to http://www.lionlamb.com
