    Step back in time to the beautiful, serene Vandaveer Village. On this manicured 3.62 acres you will find a hand-built log home (3 beds 2 baths). Complete with furnace, air, gas fireplace and new wood stove. Built in 1980 by master craftsman Ron Eckwould, the log home is full of treasues, including a reclaimed bookcases from a school in Oklahoma, & a wall from an old bank. Perfect in every detail, the historical reproduction is profound. The kitchen, dining room, baths are all works of art. Down the lane sits the log cabin. Mr. Vandeveer reclaimed the logs from the Goans cabin. Research estimates these logs were hand hewn with a broad ax between 1830-1856. Moved to his property, he personally reconstructed the original log cabin, adding a full bathroom to the antique structure.MORThis historically correct cabin also includes a furnace and ac! Could easily be a full time residence, total square feet 480, with loft area for 2 additional beds. Also in this magical village is a replica US POST OFFICE. Mr. Vandaveer 's 26 year career was with the Post Office, serving as Postmaster in Mt. Vernon and Neosho, retiring in 1992. He built this structure to use as a workshop, & at one time even did blacksmithing in his side shop! 2002 was time to add the gift shop " Cabin Fever Antiques". Behind the shop is a large workshop where many of the items sold were built: Twig tables, twig chairs, lamps, mirrors and footstools, to name a few. A very successful gift shop for 7 years, Mr. & Mrs Vandaveer decided to retire again from the daily grind! This property boasts a very fancy chicken house (new owners will inherit 7 laying chickens -just a little perk! ) With fears of area storms, they built the "Underground", a major structure storm shelter, carefully designed to support the design of this Village. The well house is a snapshot from days gone by...and the property is dotted up and down the lane with master gardener landscaped areas that beg you to sit and stay awhile. This beautiful Village is perfect for a family home, a wedding destination, a bed and breakfast, an antique store with maybe a tea room, the ideas are endless. These treasures come few and far between, call today!
