Owned by the same family for decades, this house is largely unspoiled and has some early detail – paneled doors, built-ins, wide board floors in some rooms, two handsome staircases, and ladder-like steps to an attic. 

Perfect for the old house enthusiast who’s not daunted by a restoration job.  And contractors and developers – the timing works great – renovate this for the spring market.  The house would work as two condos or could be a spacious single family home.

The house needs a lot of work.  A few things are off the list though – the furnace was installed in 2002, the roof was replaced in 2008 after it leaked, and the windows were replaced. 

The rooms are large and so are the windows – it’s a very sunny house.  There are four rooms and two baths downstairs and five rooms with one bath on the second floor. 

The house is currently configured as two nearly identical flats – one on the first floor and one on the second.  Most who have seen it envision it as two two-level townhouses.  From the outside that’s what it already looks like so people are surprised when they first come in and see the current floor plan.

City records give an approximate living area of 2380 sq.ft. 

The city shows the lot size as 2738 sq.ft.  And yes – there’s parking. There’s room to park 2 -3 cars.
