Beautiful family home in Britton, SD

Bedrooms 7
Space 3,500 sq ft
Property type house


About the property

Perfect for family get togethers, corporate retreats, or hunting parties

A big house, the kind most American kids dreamed of growing up in. Settled on the furthest edge of town, this 7 bedroom, 3 bath house is private, yet convenient. The 100-mile view as the horses run up for the evening makes it hard to leave!

This amazing 7 bedroom, 3 bath home will make you instantly like you're a part of it. The property borders the very northern edge of town, and the panoramic view is what the wide open prairie is all about. Build in 1896, the home is totally renewed with all the modern conveniences, but we've maintained all the classic charm of a historic farmhouse. Full office space, wireless, ping pong and foosball tables in the basement, along with a steam shower and soaking tub. Patios to the North and East for cooking out or relaxing, and a dining room table that seats up to 12. The property is vacant most of the year, so you'll have plenty of privacy. . . and the fully stocked kitchen will make cooking a pleasure as you watch the horses run by.

And did I mention the view from the breakfast nook? Unbelievable panoramic view of the beautiful prairie sunrise.

About Kristin Bennett

I grew up in this small town, and after living in several cities, decided to purchase a permanent place here to get back to reality; a place for my family to connect with rural America, nature, and each other. We currently live in Rapid City part-time, and maintain this beautiful home as our anchor, where our hearts call home.

Kristin Bennett purchased this house in 2008

Why Kristin Bennett chose Britton

This house is a local home, passed down through generations of the Moeckly family. When the home had to be moved to a new foundation, we took on the project. Moving a huge 3-story house was no small task, but in the end it was so worthwhile. The large stucco home now sits on it's new site where it overlooks the beautiful prairie as far as the eye can see to the North, East and West. You can visualize the history of this house in the historic photos on site, and feel the many generations of love, holidays, kids raised, and visitors welcomed here.

What makes this house unique

There aren't many places that can sleep this many (15 without using couches!), and still feel like a home. It's historic, but fitted with all modern conveniences you'd find in a 4-star hotel - from free wireless internet service to big screen TVs. But we hope you'll take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the available solitude, and the feeling of connecting to a simpler time.

This house reminds me of the house I grew up in. Very comfortable older home. We enjoyed our stay in Britton.
