Zoning: Zoned SC-3 (Special use Commercial). Allows for both commercial and residential including mixed use. Example: Retail/commercial on the 1st floor and residential on the 2nd or possibly 3rd floors. Multi-family rental. Bed n Breakfast. Office (i.e. Attorney, etc…). The design would just need to be in line with the historic architecture.

Currently the house is under construction, fully permitted with all engineering and drawings approved. There is a rich amount of history in this home, especially with the negro baseball league of the early 20th century. It was stated that many great baseball players including Jackie Robinson and others used the home as a temporary residence during training seasons.
The house was partially damaged from a fire around 10 years ago. This damaged mainly the second floor NW corner of the home (where you see all the new siding).

The roof was fully engineered, separately permitted, and completed with full inspections approved. $60K later, the new roof now has all new ridge beams and rafters, with all new decking and graphite architectural shingles. Roof Warranty will convey to the new owner.

As of today, almost all the rough in work is complete including electrical, plumbing, and mechanical (HVAC) ducting. All that is mainly needed to complete the house are cosmetics and fixtures including drywall, paint, refinishing of floors, windows, appliances, HVAC (units) though the duct work was just put in. We estimate a completion cost of around $80K or so with a good contractor.

The house has two stories and a detached garage with a second floor studio apartment. The upper floor of the home has four bedrooms and what will be 2 full baths with the master suite being built to have a large shower and tub. Downstairs there is an enormous kitchen, a half bath, formal living room, dining room, and family room and two original fireplaces. All ceilings are high at 10 ft.
