Property Description

Located in the heart of the Centre Park Historic District, the rich craftsmanship of the late 1800's is displayed throughout this beautiful building. The finely crafted woodwork, beautiful inlaid hardwood floors, stunning stained glass, floor to ceiling pocket doors, and the oak paneled staircase boast Queen Anne style architecture. This unique building has the advantage of being zoned R-3/mixed use. The first floor was most recently used as a medical office and is ADA accessible. There are original built in cabinets, beautifully crafted fireplaces, double paneled French doors, and a tiled half bath. An additional full bath was added and central air was installed on the main level. The spacious 2nd floor apartment boasts the elegance of
the Queen Anne style throughout and has a separate side entrance. Outstanding features include large kitchen, spacious dining room, 2 bedrooms and full bath. You'll be impressed with the attention to detail throughout! The 3rd floor is currently used for storage but has great potential with 5 spacious rooms and plenty of natural light. The curved railings on the stairways are uniquely designed and are sure to impress. And yes! There is a much sought after 2 car garage for personal use or additional rental income. The new slate roof is approximately 1 yr. old. The 1st and 2nd floors have their own gas heat and electric. This elegantly styled Victorian home, where every room tells a story, would be perfect as a residence, business use, or as an investment opportunity. Be the first to call for your personal tour!
