This house is about 5 blocks down from the house I grew up in. We drove past it everyday when I was growing up. I always liked the stone on the front and the cool wood pillars on the front stoop. Although this Realtor photo isn't the greatest, the house is on the market.
What is neat about this house, in my opinion, is that it was obviously built by the same builder as my house. It has the same stone as my house and even the same stoop pillars. The house is the same square footage. The only difference is that the house above is 3 bedroom, and my house is 2 bedroom. From what I have been able to find out about the above house, there are two small bedrooms in the front where I have one large bedroom, and they made the living room smaller in the above house to make the front bedrooms somewhat decent in size. I have a feeling that this house might feel just a bit cramped. This house sits on a smaller lot, 80' x 126', where mine is 90' x 150' - I love my large lot!
The house even has the same color scheme going on as mine...the brown linear sandstone on the bottom of the house, the beige siding, and the light brown roof. The only real difference is that the shutters on this house are blue, and the shutters on my house are green (I prefer the green).
At this time, the house is a rental. Sounds like it might have a similar history to mine.

This is the second house down from the highway, has a little creek at the rear property line, and sits next door to an old fashioned country church. The property behind it is a youth center and an office for the University of Missouri Extension, beyond that it is commercial property. I'm glad that mine is on the cul-de-sac.
Below I am posting a picture of both the house for sale and the Cul-De-Sac Shack for your comparison. I might have to stop and take a better picture of this house sometime.
*Please Note* I have nothing to do with this listing, I don't know who the owner is and I have no affiliation with the Realtor who is listing this house. I'm just sharing it because it is so similar to mine.
There is another house in town that is the exact same floor plan as mine, with the same stone, but it has white siding and a front porch. I'll try to get a picture of it sometime to share as well.
