Pick of the Week – Urban Living in a Former Firehouse

There is a very unique home for sale downtown in the crossroads. Just a few years ago, it is possible that some would have felt that it was a bit on the outskirts of the main crossroads zone, but now it is right in the thick of it. With the addition of the sprint center, KC Star building, and the inevitable spread of the gallery district eastward- this building finds itself in a perfect spot – not too noisy, but within reach of all the fun stuff. But the location is just part of it, this is an incredible building. Built in 1885, it was one of our first firehouses downtown so the historical value is huge. It is all brick, and it is over 6000 square feet. The first floor can be (and is currently) used as an art gallery or some sort of retail space, with additional studio space and a garage. The second floor is a very large living area with a balcony. The finishes are all very nice and unique. Not so unique that they wouldn’t appeal to a large audience, just unique enough that they appeal to more people because it was done with love – not the generic finishes that are all too common these days. The building is listed at $900,000. Let me know if you have any questions or interest.
