Small town living at its finest! The Henry Tilley House in Ransom, Kansas is both a local landmark and an American treasure. Lauded for its Victorian Folk architecture, the heritage home has graced the town of Ransom since 1898. Although renovated and modernized with updated electrical, plumbing and high efficiency HVAC, the beloved limestone cottage still retains its original yesteryear charm and elegance. Built entirely of locally quarried stone, smooth cut and rough-cut limestone blocks were skillfully laid to create a quoining effect at the corners of the house and around the openings on the front facade. All mortar joints feature a beaded joint. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006, the Tilley House is noted for its original occupant and builder, Henry Tilley, a master stone cutter and mason from Somerset, England who built many fine stone structures in the surrounding area. Inside, the home features all the details one would expect from a turn of the century masterpiece. With approximately 1091 square feet of living space, the home lives large with formal entertaining areas that function well for any style of living. Two bedrooms boast walk-in closets, a main floor laundry with wet sink is conveniently located off the eat-in kitchen, and a luxurious standing tub is the perfect touch to the perfect home. Outside is easily accessed from the living, dining and kitchen rooms, with doors opening to the porch and yard. The corner lot is just a block off the main commercial street within easy walking distance to school, churches, bank, post office and the grocery store. A basement storm shelter and steel construction garage complete the picture. Also known as Prairie Cottage Guest House, the historic Henry Tilley House offers the unique opportunity to step back in time and escape the hustle and bustle of city life!
