About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath 1300 Sq Ft Private Home

Historic Victorian cottage in downtown residential neighborhood has been newly remodeled. Light filled and clean, this fully restored home has many windows, original yellow pine flooring, decorative wood trim finishes, and tall ceilings.

Master bedroom with queen bed and large master bath with soaking tub. Second bedroom with queen bed and an additional full bath. The newly remodeled kitchen includes a breakfast bar, gas range, and appliances. Both back and front yard are quiet and secluded with two porches, a patio, and grill.

Faurot field is a quick drive or a 1.5 mile easy walk through the University of Missouri campus. Downtown district is .75 mile walk through Stephens College campus. Stephens College, Stephens Lake Park, and Columbia College are all close by. Convenient central location makes this cottage perfect if you are attending special events, such as MU games, graduations, Citizen Jane, True/False, or Roots n Blues, staying in town for business, visiting family, or vacationing in central Missouri.

Update summer 2016 - I've just gone through some major rehab, with all new paint on the inside and outside. The house looks great!

Extended stay guests welcome!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hello! I moved to Columbia in 1996 and earned a Master's Degree from the MU College of Agriculture. Since then, I have worked in the downtown arts scene, grown and sold vegetables at the Columbia Farmer's Market, and rehabbed this house! Today, I work as an accountant.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia, MO, USA:
Once, two older ladies teetered up my front steps to tell me they had lived here as girls in the late 1920s, with a party line phone in the front hall and a cow in the back yard. Sometime later, an overfull car of middle aged men stopped me in the yard to say they had lived and partied here in the 1970s. I bought the house in 2005, stripped it down to the shell, and have been putting it back together ever since...for better or for worse. I have no doubt you will enjoy spending time in this home.
