This home was owned and built by Frohna's own local Doctor Palish in 1916. The present owner purchased this home three years ago and following a nine month renovation period has restored it to its original elegance and beauty. This full brick home (3 layers of brick) consists of three stories along with an unfinished basement. The main level of this jewel has original hardwood flooring, windows, trim, pocket doors, fireplace, stain glass, and features 10 foot ceilings. An example of the care given in the renovation would be the trim of the windows were removed, stained back to life, and returned to its place. The original fireplace is coal and has been closed; however, it creates a comforting focal point in the living room with original stain glass windows to each side.
On the main level there is also a den featuring exposed brick, a sitting room, and a half bath with exposed brick. No detail has been spared in the renovation of the kitchen. Notable features of the kitchen include custom built Beaussink cabinets, granite counter top, and an island with bar and sink. Appliances are Frigidaire stainless steel. There is lighting beneath the cabinets and much exposed brick. Because of the retained exposed brick, pop up outlets may be found on the countertop. The large formal dining room features the original ceiling beams, a large bay window, and crystal chandelier. Moving up the original grand staircase to the second level is where you will find the master suite and master spa bath, two bedrooms, full hall bath, and laundry room. There is a second stairway to the rear that leads to the kitchen. Again, original hardwood flooring is found on this level. The master bedroom features 4 large windows to bring in plenty of natural light. The master bath was designed by the present owner with comfort and style in mind. It is spacious and inviting features include a large shower with rain shower head, a large jucuzzi tub, custom Beaussink cabinetry, granite counters, and beautiful tile work. A large window frames the view of the outdoor scenery. The third level of the home is unfinished. The basement is full and unfinished. It is ¾ stone foundation and then brick. In the basement is the water softner and the new tankless whole house water heater. The deck that is found off of the kitchen leads to the spacious paved courtyard again designed by the present owner for entertainment and beauty. It has been designed for individual entertaining areas, nicely landscaped, and has accent lighting. The original cistern has been painted to remain part of the charming décor. A ledger board has been installed on the second floor as part of the renovation so that a future owner may add a deck to this level if they so choose. To the rear of the home is a covered carport. The roof is original slate and has been sealed. This home, surrounded by stunning countryside, has recently served as a bed and breakfast nestled in the middle of Missouri's finest wineries. Five wineries are located within a 15 mile radius. Historic Frohna, located in Perry county, has a population of 254, and was founded by German immigrants in 1839. It is located north of Cape Girardeau and is 77 miles SE from St Louis.
