Property Description
Extraordinary, one-of-a kind home in the middle of 4 acres! 1910 Colonial 3 story brick home was built by Robert Ward, a prominent banker, coal company entrepreneur, and dairy farmer in Benton.

The front door entry is over 6 feet with arched leaded & beveled glasses that opens to a wide, 3-story staircase. 18 x 34 living room with a 6ft fully functioning fireplace. Several original brass wall lights, ceiling chandeliers, and candle sconces of the period. Wonderful 16 x 17 sunroom greets the sunrise over the wooded grounds.
