A masterpiece of Gothic Architecture. Presenting one of Omaha's most magnificent and historic homes; The Offutt mansion. This 'Golden Era' estate was built in 1894 for the Charles Offutt family and designed by well-known architect Henry Ives Cobb. Imagine the Offutt family chef borrowing a cup of sugar from the Joslyn family chef in their neighboring castle a century ago. This piece of Omaha history is exploding with potential and possibilities. The stately brick structure served as a bed and breakfast and entertaining space for many years with 8 private suites, each one unique with their own surprise. Sunrooms, dens, fireplaces, each suite is a treat to explore. The top floor is a stunning home all on it's own. A large, vintage space with a private kitchen and stunning original woodwork, paneled walls, fireplace, and a maze of built in skeleton key cabinets to explore. The estate includes an incredible, perfectly complimentary carriage house with full chauffeurs quarters above.

Area Information

Joslyn Castle

The Joslyn Castle Neighborhood is located within the Gold Coast Historic District.  Named after the “castle” built for George and Sarah Joslyn at the beginning of the twentieth century, it remains a vibrant community with a mix of historic mansions, bungalows, apartments and other historical landmarks.  Located at 39 th and Davenport on five acres, the Joslyn home (called Lynhurst by the family) remains a public treasure for the city of Omaha as does the Joslyn Art Museum which was donated as a memorial to her husband by Sarah.  The home has a unique history, with slight damage from the 1913 tornado.  It was also, at Sarah’s invitation, used as a home for soldiers traveling to Europe to participate in WWI.  From 1944 through 1989 it housed the office of the Omaha Public School system, and it’s pasture was home for the first Omaha Community Playhouse. As late as the 1940’s, the district was a town within itself with several drug stores, grocers, a newspaper, undertaker and café.  Today there is still a small town ambiance with homes and apartments in all price ranges and an active home owner’s association.
