Old Homestead: 1119 Maudie

April 10, 2012 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments

St. Charles County really isn’t my cup of tea. I make no secret of that. But if I had to live out there, THIS is exactly the type of house I would want.

Sitting on 2.8 acres surrounded by newer homes, this 1905 farmhouse is not just a private oasis. It’s a unique slice of local history, recalling the days when farms outnumbered subdivisions and 94 was nothing more than a country highway.

When this house was built, fewer than 25,000 people lived in St. Charles County. Today the population is 360,000, and early farms like this are few and far between. So you can forgive if this old gal is a little dated, right? She may not be the prettiest but she sure is a survivor. And oh, what potential!

Fix this place up and you’ll have your very own St. Chuck compound…

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique property, which is selling as a foreclosure and would make a fantastic mini farm, I’d be happy to help!
