An iconic part of Marion, the Shugart House was built over 175 years ago and looks even more beautiful today! The house is incredibly spacious with multiple bright living spaces downstairs including an old-world parlor, office with built-in bookshelves, renovated full bath, and living room complete with brick flooring. The kitchen features brick walls, stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous, custom cherry cabinetry. Upstairs you’ll find three freshly painted, spacious rooms with good closet space (a rare find in homes built in the 1800s!). In fact, as this house was on the Underground Railroad, the frame in the southern-most room conceals an original hiding spot where the Shugarts hid slaves who were in search of freedom! Two full baths are also on the second floor. Attic Loft Space features unfinished potential, easily suited for a 4th bedroom or bonus space! A spacious two-car garage and a large shop with massive built-in cabinetry is ideal for the weekend mechanic or carpenter. The near-acre lot with mature pine and walnut trees are perfect for enjoying the outdoors with privacy. Only a mile from retail, restaurants, and IWU. 90% new roof, a new A/C unit, heating unit, and plumbing provide confidence related to big ticket items…and the sunsets are to die for!!
