Epic home with once in a lifetime opportunity for ownership, seeks new steward. Solid brick building, with old world craftsmanship and millwork, gleaming oak hardwood floors throughout the main floor, the great room is sun filled with southern exposure and soaring cathedral beamed ceiling, includes stage, some stain glass in windows. Sold turnkey with nearly all furnishings.Life began as a Lutheran church in 1937, the current owner purchased the building and developed it as an Inn, a venue for gatherings such as: fund raisers events, weddings, celebrations, concerts, plays, retreats, yoga studio, seminars, excellent group lodging with 6 bedrooms, sleeps 19. Would be awesome AirBNB, VRBO. Make it your own castle, it is the largest single-family home in the county and surrounding area, perhaps the state. Currently owners quarters are in lower level. Bring your own vision or continue with the current venue which has been a staple of the Staples community for the past 14 years.
