Description

Welcome to the historic French Park! This majestic 1907 craftsman jewel needs some TLC to become the diamond that it was built to be! The distinctive craftsman has a Victorian influence displayed by the detailed woodworking and design. Located in the heart of French Park, it has an unobstructed view of the park; this location is rich in culture and history. This property is designated as a landmark and is eligible for the Mills Act property tax program. (call the city for details). The grand full-width front porch leads to a formal living area and dining, fireplaces, built-ins, and craftsman details. Currently, with 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, the property has been used as a "rooming house" for decades. 2 electric meters and an exterior staircase make it easier to convert to a duplex, multiple-family home, or just a grand old estate, your choice! Zoned sd19, the property allows for multiple uses but must be kept historic. Located near office professionals, retail, and restaurants. Period built-ins, moldings, mopboards, picture rails, and original wood floors enhance the irreplaceable charm of the era. There are many windows, arched openings, original doors, etc., multiple kitchen areas, rear stairs exit for access/exit, and a vast basement area plus a large attic. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy downtown amenities in a residential setting. Large rear yard for parking, possible adu, or a tranquil setting. Oversized 2 car+ (horse), two-story garage (carriage house) with high ceilings allowing for what probably was a hay loft. Long drive back off the street for lots of off-street parking. This irreplaceable property has been on the market for decades; take advantage of it if you love historic homes. This property qualifies for special financing within the community lending program!
