Four levels of goodness including hardwood floors, ceiling fans, and central air. Living room has wood stove insert and leads to the half bath.

Going down we have an English style basement kitchen with stainless appliances, tiled backsplash, island, granite countertops, and pantry.

Agent Notes

This home is a legal Duplex and is rented with a 60 day Tenants right in place. This would be a great opportunity for an owner occupant to purchase the home, reside in one of the units and continue to take in rent on the other. This allows you to purchase more than you originally thought. If you are looking to renovate this home back to its original single family status, the opportunities are endless. Recent values in the area would suggest a $800,000 plus value when renovation is complete. Currently, the home is split up into 2 units, front and back. The front boasts 4 beds, 2.5 baths and 2593 sq. ft., roof top deck, too many details to mention. The back unit has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 1659 sq. ft. alley access and courtyard. You do not want to miss this opportunity to own a beautiful piece of history in an amazing neighborhood. If you are looking for a finished project or new construction, this is not it. Being SOLD AS IS unless there is a major issue to integrity of the home. This is your opportunity to make it your own.
