Initially constructed before 1877, the house began life as a smaller single-family home. Italianate in appearance with bracketed cornice and low hip roof, it is presently configured as two five-room and one six-room apartment. The first floor right side has been gutted back to the studs showing the progression of construction through the years. Nearly all mantels are present in the home including a late Victorian over-mantel with mirror intact. The left side could be made habitable quickly while the work is underway on the right.
Draft architectural plans (available to prospective purchasers) call for conversion to a duplex Ė two townhouse-type units. The first floor of the left or west unit entry hall, living room, dining room, half bath, and kitchen with family room. The second floor would have a master with en-suite bath plus two additional bedrooms and a hall bath. The right or east unit would have an entry, hall, dining room, a full bath, and a flex room that could be used as either a study or a bedroom. The second floor would include a master suite and another small bedroom.
The home is located just a few steps from Doyle Thomas / Green Street Park. Rehab and occupancy covenants required. Brokers protected.
