About Bob and Julie Oberhauser

We live a mile outside Mineral Point and own a manufacturing business in town. Julie was raised here and we moved back here to raise our family 20 years ago.

Bob and Julie Oberhauser purchased this house in 2013

Why Bob and Julie Oberhauser chose Downtown

This is a very unique property and well know in Mineral Point due to the old gas station that sits on the edge of it.

One of the first gas stations was erected next to the house in the 1920s. It was brought in by rail and is made of steel although it doesn't look like it. The gas station stopped operating in the 1930s.

The house was built before 1870s and the front addition was put on around 1910. We restored the interior of the house in 2014. We added all the amenities one expects to have these days. A dishwasher, high speed internet wifi, Netflix, stainless appliances, flat screen TVs, etc. We also restored the large Victorian trim and baseboard throughout the home as well as uncovered a medallion in the master bedroom which was a surprise.

What makes this house unique

Everything is located on one floor. The home is only a block away from restaurants and shopping.

We recently spent 2 nights at this beautiful home and will definitely return. The location is great , within walking distance to many things in town. It is very comfortable and nicely appointed. Enjoyed sitting on the back deck and enjoyed the weather. Would highly recommend.

Great house; clean and well equipped. Close to everything in town. Traffic/ATV noise a negative.

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay; we (five adults) come down yearly for a weekend seeing plays at American Players Theatre. The house is clean and comfortable. We typically cook many of our own meals and eating out on the back porch was lovely. I would recommend it highly. It is in town and there is some noise from traffic and an ATV path during the day but was not too noticeable at night.

Car: not necessary

Kick back and relax in a newly restored pre-1870s historic home with all the amenities. Just one block away from downtown shops, restaurants and the opera house.

Small enough for a couple, but large enough to sleep a family or gathering of 6 comfortably.
