JMB’s Utah 6,912 square foot home is currently on the market for $374,900.

The NY Times reports:

COMMON SPACES: Most of the house is original, including a banister stretching from the entry to the attic, beveled windows, hardwood floors and fireplaces. There are built-in cupboards in the dining room and storage drawers on each of the house’s three floors.

PERSONAL SPACES: There are two bedrooms in the finished basement, one on the main level and four on the second level. An eighth bedroom is in the attic suite, which includes a living room that, according to the listing agent, served as a workshop for John Browning (and includes remnants of a wiring system used to buzz his maids). Most bedrooms have views of the yard and neighboring historic houses; the attic has treetop and mountain views.

How cool would it be to say you live in the house where JMB designed guns! 🙂

    I for one would love to live in a house that John M. Browning lived in. Think of the history. If it meant alot to him, then I'm sure it is cool.

    There is a narrow hallway in the house where john browning use to try out experimental weapons, so there is some bullet holes left in those walls. Rumor has it his children said he would keep other experiments he was working on in hidden closets or compartments in the house and no one has really looked for the either. I would not doubt these rumors are true considering the rich history of Ogden’s unique homes and secret tunnels and hidden rooms.
