Yesterday, my friend Lulu said she was stopping by Lincoln to visit with Ernie Edwards on her way to the Missouri Motor Tour. I'm sure he will appreciate that.
I came across a some more stuff about Ernie's house in Broadwell.
It is 1,597 square feet, has two bedrooms, one bathroom and one partial, is on a 6,800 square feet lot (.16 acre), 8 total rooms, 10X16 kitchen, 22X13 living room and 12X11 master bedroom.
"Charming 2 bedroom Caper Cod style home with abundant history--owner Ernie Edwards owned and operated the adjacent "Pig Hip" which at one time boasted an operating restaurant, gas station and motel.
Mr. Edwards still showcases remaining Route 66 memorabilia from this very residence!!
This comfortable property boasts a large living room with an open staircase with woodburning fireplace surrounded by built in shelving, a rustic formal dining room with hardwood flooring, "antique" style eat-in kitchen, finished breezeway, a screened back porch (where Ernie held court after the restaurant burned down), upper level bedroom with adjoining sitting room and large hall walk-in closet in addition to an attached garage with a 7X13 storage room.
Other features include updated furnace & central air conditioning, a storage shed, range/oven & refrigerator in kitchen stay and large lot ideal for outdoor entertaining.
Enjoy small town living (yes, REAL SMALL) conveniently located between Lincoln and Springfield.
Own a piece of history. Property being sold "As Is."
No mention of taxes, but I imagine they are not very high.
