A stunning example of late 19th Century Italianate architecture, the Samuel and Sophia Ruby House was designed to be a showplace and has remained one to this day. With a storied history, the property has had several different uses over the years, namely the site of Winterset’s first hospital in 1920, a post WWII boarding house and currently as the Ruby House Bed & Breakfast. The home, at 5,889 SF of living area, is considered the largest residential dwelling in Madison County. It features 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a grand entrance staircase, butler’s staircase, a parlor, a custom designed chef’s kitchen and an abundance of storage and closet space. Some of the unique features of the property include the original 9’ pocket doors, two original fireplaces, four uniquely designed decorative plaster ceiling medallions, original handcrafted hardwood staircase and the original hand crank doorbell. The current owners have spent five years restoring the home to its former glory and updating it with thoughtful modern amenities for its use as a bed and breakfast. A separate mother-in-law suite is housed in the former carriage house on the property that currently is rented for 750.00 per month. With an excellent location just a few blocks from the John Wayne Birthplace museum and the historic Winterset town square, this home is ideally situated for a multitude of different uses.
