Listing Description

Big Red Barn (formerly Bed and Breakfast) For Sale in Seymour, Missouri 

Located in the Amish Country of Webster County, Missouri, this features 5 en-suites on the second floor and a ground floor Innkeeper private bedroom and bathroom. Ozarks festivals abound in small towns; the Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch is a short 7 mile drive. Branson is a short day trip as well.

This intriguing property is legendary from the late 1800's as a mule barn, perhaps providing some of the famous Missouri Mules for World War I. Evolving through the decades to a large hay barn, an antique store, a restaurant and finally, a bed and breakfast, it now functions as a private residence. Maintaining the attraction and allure of a vintage Bed & Breakfast through the remodeling, the building has become a landmark in the small Ozarks City of Seymour and sits on over an acre and a quarter of land. The interior character reflects a period long past, planks of cedar line its walls and its tin ceiling character is reproduced with very decorative copper Evangeline style. The facility is well suited for an extensive rural and farm country theme development.

Furnished mostly throughout, the opportunity for a quick launch as a business, in the Amish country of Webster County, is inherit. The 14'X15' Innkeeper Suite, located on the first floor, has a newly remodeled full bathroom with a walk-in closet, was completed at the same time as the 6'X6' public half-bath. Complementing the 5-12'X14' guest bedrooms on the second floor, each with a full bath, there is a 10' X14' housekeeping room which could function as an additional bedroom. At the end of the hallway, there is a closet and laundry area. The third floor has a finished storage room, 10' X 12', as well as an unfinished area of ~300 sq.ft., a substantial amount of space that could be finished for additional public or private use.

Recent improvements include downstairs bathrooms, a new metal roof and metal siding and a completely remodeled kitchen. A new 98,000 btu Rinnai Tankless water heater was installed in July 2018. A Sterling Water Softener system was added, complete with a whole house sediment filter as well as an activated charcoal filter.

Access to the guest rooms by the way of an outside stairway from the convenient asphalt parking area precludes the need to keep the ground floor doors unlocked. The grounds have a shared ''Duck Pond'' perfect for memorable wedding and special event pictures. A grape vine on the arbor at the west of the building has been very productive over the years. To the rear of the building, there are electrical services and a sewer access for RV's. The 20'X30' detached garage has 2 rollup doors and a workshop area. The 12'X16' sealed outbuilding with Gambrel roof provides excellent additional storage. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance from the building that offer a variety of meals for any guests. Owner is licensed real estate agent in MO
