Built in 1925, this 5+BR home offers nearly 2 acres of wooded privacy in the center of town. Classic style with big windows in every room, elaborate oak woodwork, and gleaming wood floors throughout. Full basement, finished 3rd floor/attic offers ample space for hobby/work/play. Renowned KU entomologist Charles D. Michener and family moved to the property in 1949, and carefully maintained it for 65 years. An elevator was added in 2006 to connect 1st to 2nd floor. Clean, painted, and genuinely one-of-a-kind.
