My Latest Listing: Victorian Charm @ 401 Carson

September 28, 2015 , In: Featured Posts, Residential Properties , With: No Comments


When I think of investment properties, exquisite handcrafted details are usually not what comes to mind. But apparently there were different standards in the Victorian era, because when the Tobin family built this house for investment purposes in 1890 (and its twin right next door), they spared no expense when it came to architectural delights.


They installed this beautiful staircase in the foyer. They also put stained glass, parquet floors and a gorgeous fireplace mantel in what was then the dining room…



The current owners have taken these original features and tried to balance them with modern updates, recently remodeling the kitchen and both bathrooms. I think the kitchen is especially well done, feeling fresh & new but also totally appropriate to the house…



Other awesome features here: a main floor laundry, finished attic, 2-car garage, private fenced yard and more than a half acre of land…


Best of all, this old beauty is located in a National Register Historic District, within walking distance of numerous restaurants and the award-winning Ferguson Farmers Market. And it’s bargain priced at just $140,000!

Come take a look at the OPEN HOUSE next Sunday, October 11, from 1-3pm. I promise you’ll be impressed!!

401 Carson has 4 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 2033 square feet. It was just listed a few days ago by me 🙂
