There's a huge historic property for sale right down the street from the museum where I work. Early this week, our CEO tells me that the price is $50K. So I go the listing web site and it says $195K. I email my CEO with this info and she emails back that they emailed her with the $50K price. So my common sense goes out the window and I call up the agent, whom I know, and set up a walk thru with him and my wife. I've been in the building before, but the walk thru is mind numbing. 12K square feet, central air, new HW boiler for all the radiators. Every window in the oldest part of the building has interior pocket shutters that work perfectly. Every door has hardware to die for. Medallions on the ceilings, alarm system, etc. etc. The place is unbelievable. The downside is no garage and for the last 50 years it was used as the Visiting Nurse Assoc. So all of the rooms with their 10' ceilings have florescent lights. Because it was owned by the local hospital, the maintenance was incredible. But, not being a residence, there's no shower. Just rest rooms with multiple stalls on every floor. This place is huge! It's like Gone With the Wind.
It turns out that the price is
$195K. My CEO misread the email that said "reduced $50K" She said "my bad".
Of course, my wife and I are still thinking about this place. The taxes (even if reassessed) are outrageous and the utilities would kill you. But what a place, even for the correct price. Check it out:http://www.loopnet.com/xNet/Looplink/Pr ... 2578682023
