TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas legislative leaders are preparing to review the proposed sale of a 100-year-old home near the Statehouse.

Brownback and top lawmakers were meeting Monday to consider a $700,000 bid for the Hiram Price Dillon home.

The bid came from the president of the Pioneer Group during an auction in June. The group converts historic properties into affordable housing and could use the home for its offices.

The Department of Administration is recommending the sale.

The 12,000-square-foot home is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's known for its Italian Renaissance-style architecture.

The state has owned the house since 1998, when a church traded the property for a parking lot. The house has been largely vacant in recent years.
