The Historic Purcell Mansion in Alliance is Now For Sale


The Purcell Mansion in Alliance, which was built by Robert and Elizabeth Purcell in the late 1920s and which is on the National Register of Historic Places, has hit the market for $950,000.

The focal point of the 7,500-square-foot house on the 13-acre private estate is the circular brick tower that connects all seven levels, all the way up to the library that offers spectacular views of the manicured gardens and lush property. Five bedrooms await, and Purcell Mansion is permitted to function as a Bed & Breakfast, if your future plans include running a cute business in a legendary property.
The current owners have gone to great lengths to tastefully restore the French-Norman style home.

"Deborah Okey said she and Steven spent years restoring the house, while retaining architectural features such as a ship’s mast Robert Purcell brought back from Europe and enormous carvings of the King of France and Duke of Normandy that flank one of the fireplaces," the Canton Repository reports. The Okeys are the seventh owners.
