Property Description
This spectacular Civil War era home completed in 1874 is in remarkably restored condition in the lovely historic town of Spencer. Enjoy this multi acre estate that includes a carriage home, a summer kitchen with conference space, a post and beam barn with loft and garage space, plus a commanding view of this charming Indiana river town just 30 minutes west of Bloomington. This outstanding example of High Victorian Italianate architecture is on a limestone foundation and is three stories high with a mansard tower. Beautiful millwork and original trim and hardwoods enhance the first level of this home with 14 foot ceilings and 12 foot ceilings on the second level. The first and second floors are coordinated around a center hallway that is accessed by a main level curved stair that is original to the home. There are three, possibly four large graceful bedrooms up and a gorgeous parlor on the main, library on the main with beautiful built-in bookcases, a formal dining room, a large kitchen in the rear of the home, and two staircases. Captain David Enoch Beem was the original owner of this home and was reportedly the first college graduate from Owen County and was an Indiana University graduate in 1860 with a law degree. According to reports he was known for his political speeches and helped organize a volunteer militia to serve in the union army during the Civil War. He and his men fought in many famous battles including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Captain Beem’s Legacy still stands proudly on this acreage on the north end of town.
