If these walls could talk...this Art Center mansion, originally the Rufus Goodell house, has lived many lives. It was converted into tenement housing in the 1940s, and is currently a 10-unit apartment building, with the same owner for the past 4 decades. So many historic details are still in tact, like original carved wood and wet plaster molding, fireplaces with the original tile, slate roof, stained glass, seven-point star copper window details, and beautiful wood floors. There is so much potential here, and future use could continue as a fully operational 10 unit apartment building, short term rentals, condo conversion, or even office use. Six units in the main structure, potential for 4 in the carriage house, possibly even basement "garden level" living space. Several units will need to be renovated to be operational once again. Brand new boiler services both the house and carriage house. Security camera system in place. Square footage is main house and carriage house combined. Art Center is the north part of Midtown, named for its proximity to the DIA and CCS. One block from major transportation lines, and shops and restaurants. NEZ-New/Rehab and NEZ-Homestead districts already in place. Zoned R5. East Ferry Avenue historic district.
