This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Phoenix history!The main home consists of 3 bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms and is constructed of frame, brick & siding with a fully restored front facade, based on an original 1937 photograph. Restoration was approved by the City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office. New roof with composition shingles. New electrical, plumbing systems, gas lines, HVAC and multi-stage water filtration and softener. New tiled entry leads to grand staircase and living room with beautiful wood beamed ceilings and wood burning fireplace. Completely renovated kitchen with new appliances, quartz counter tops, custom painted cabinets, hardware, backsplash, and double ovens. Interior renovations include all new paint, wallpaper, restored original windows/doors, restored antique light fixtures and new window treatments. Bathrooms are all new and expanded. Current owners also built a fully permitted 2 bedroom/2 bath casita behind the garage, complete with living room, kitchen, outdoor wood burning fireplace, lovely courtyard with new stone fountain and outdoor shower. Great space for visitors/guests or huge income producing potential as Airbnb/Vrbo! As an added bonus, there is a separate 300 sq/ft structure, perfect for a home office or gym combination!
