This Victorian Fixer-upper In Versailles Has Old Home Fans Going Wild


Some see a decaying old home and think “junk,” but real treasures can lie within. 

This Victorian in Versailles, Kentucky — just a block from the town’s historic Main Street — has unique design elements that, with a little love, could become showstoppers once again. 

Namely, its foyer, which contains a staircase with intricate woodwork and a gigantic, gilded mirror. There are also stained glass doors and windows throughout and doorknobs and keyholes with minuscule designs for which you almost need a magnifying glass to appreciate fully.

The four bedroom, two bath home is currently for sale for $269,900. You may want to jump, quick, though, because social media pages for old homes have already picked up on the listing; One post on Facebook has over 4,000 shares.

Versailles, Kentucky, is a small town of under 10,000 about 13 miles west of Lexington and around an hour away from Louisville.
