The listing for this beautiful estate on the market in Lexington, Illinois, starts out with describing the Victorian as “something truly out of the ordinary” — and boy, they’re not lying.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence — which is listed for $4.5 million — is downright breathtaking on the outside and has an interior that could be a child’s wonderland and an adult’s ultimate dream come to life.

“An extraordinary offering of historical magnificence,” the listing on Zillow.com says. “This impeccably restored 1898 Victorian residence stands as a testament to timeless elegance and contemporary living. The expansive 55-acre canvas of breathtaking beauty boasts meticulously manicured grounds that illustrates an awe-inspiring visual spectacle that commands attention and admiration. This impeccably restored estate is 9,000+ sq. ft. of comfortable living enveloped in rich architectural history.”

Wonderfully designed, its pitch perfect structure isn’t the only fascinating thing about this curious property.

In fact, check out the amenities spread out in and around the home:

  • Original elevator

  • Hand painted ceilings

  • Floating staircase

  • Pool house

  • Tennis court

However, there are two unique features that stand out above the rest: A 36-horse carousel that operates out of one of the buildings and a 36-passenger MTC train.

Oh yes, you read that right.

These two highlights caught the attention of Zillow Gone Wild, a Facebook page and X (formerly Twitter) account that showcases fascinating homes for sale, and people had to praise the features — and the house.

“Looks like the perfect setting for AHS (American Horror Story,)“ one person said on Facebook.

“This house is perfection!!” another noted.

“Amazing! A few changes are needed but overall spectacular!” someone observed.

“I need this house in my life!” one person commented.

Giving serious Ryan Murphy show set vibes,” another compared on X.

Who owned this? Why did they have the carousel and train? I’m so curious!!” someone wondered.
