About This Listing
Presenting the remarkable Colonial Revival house, a gem built in 1904 by the MacRae brothers. This exquisite property, now offered at an enhanced price of $2,500, is a true find. Situated on a 4,140 sq.ft. lot, just across from the Gold Coast, this elegant home boasts a spacious duplex layout with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Separate utility meters add to its practicality.
Named “Lady Blue,” this house exudes charm and character. The residence encompasses 1,924 sq.ft. of living space, featuring a plethora of historical elements. Intricate trim work, stately columns, leaded glass windows, and tall wainscoting are just a few of the exceptional details that adorn this home. The wood-burning fireplace adds warmth and allure, while decorative built-in cabinets reflect the craftsmanship of a bygone era.
Recent upgrades include newer quartz countertops and lower cabinets in both kitchens. The quality of the dentil block moldings and plate rails speaks to the house’s timeless elegance. The property’s potential is evident: removing the entryway interior wall and converting the upstairs kitchen back to its original bedroom configuration could transform “Lady Blue” into a five-bedroom, two-bathroom single-family home.
Beyond its enchanting interiors, the house seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living. Expansive decks and a charming patio offer ample space for outdoor activities. The lush lawn, greenhouse, fish pond, and garden create a haven of tranquility. A thoughtfully designed dog kennel/cold frame provides protection for plants while adding to the property’s allure. Additional storage is available on the ground level, both at the front and rear.
Situated in close proximity to esteemed schools, public transportation, shopping destinations, fine restaurants, and street cafes, this grand property is conveniently located at 1206 Grand Street. A special opportunity awaits, and you’re invited to explore it further at the upcoming open house on March 11 and 12, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Don’t miss out on the chance to make “Lady Blue” your own – a residence where history, elegance, and modern living converge seamlessly.
