“BEAUMONT” $450,000

Welcome to “Beaumont,” a piece of living history waiting to be restored to its former glory. Built circa 1900 by members of the Roller family, founders of the adjacent Augusta Military Academy, this magnificent estate is steeped in heritage. Since 1954, it has been in the hands of the Topping family, and for the first time in decades, it’s now available for you to own and revive.

As you approach the property, you’ll notice its classic Colonial architectural style and the surrounding 1.41-acre lot, which offers ample space for gardening, landscaping, or outdoor activities. The main house features over 3,341 square feet of livable space, with a total structure area of 5,326 square feet, giving you plenty of room to realize your vision for this historic home.

Inside, the house has four spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The main level includes a large living room, complete with a fireplace, a formal dining room, and a kitchen that offers plenty of potential for redesign and customization. The unfinished basement provides additional space for storage or future expansion.

While “Beaumont” is in need of restoration, it’s priced below assessed value, offering a unique opportunity for the right person or team to breathe new life into this historic estate. The wood siding, poured concrete foundation, and metal-tin roof are all characteristic of the early 20th-century construction, providing a solid base for your restoration efforts.

Located in Fort Defiance, this property is not only rich in history but also conveniently situated near the Augusta Military Academy Museum, a testament to the area’s storied past. With zoning that allows for general agricultural use, there’s flexibility in how you utilize the surrounding land.

If you’re ready to take on a restoration project that will bring history to life, “Beaumont” is your canvas. Contact us today to arrange a viewing and explore the possibilities this historic estate has to offer.
