In 1912, Carpenter J.H. Wagner completed construction on this 2,117 square foot home in historic Old Colorado City, the same year the RMS Titanic sank for perspective. According to city directories, until 1942 it was a single-family residence. In 1943, until at least the 1960s, two or three tenants at any one time resided here, each with their own entrance, so the potential is there for a multi-unit home. As an added bonus, the property is also zoned for commercial use. In 2022, curious and committed people went to work to restore and rehabilitate this special home. They uncovered original Douglas Fir and Oak hardwood floors, chimney stacks covered in plaster and drywall, and a fireplace painted black with sandstone and inlaid quartz underneath. Look carefully at the base of one of the porch columns and you will see 'J.H. Wagner est. 1912' carved into the stone. What else is original? A claw foot tub, a stained glass window, doors and door knobs, baseboard molding, built-in cabinetwork, a wood waiter, and a dining room chandelier minus the glass shades. What overall updates have been made? Refinished hardwood floors, epoxy floors in the basement, luxury vinyl plank floors in the bathrooms, light fixtures and ceiling fan from "Home Lighting," a stair runner with stair rods, all interior and exterior paint, and copper penny gutters. What's new in the kitchen? Teak butcher block countertops, ceramic tile backsplash, a sink and faucet, and refinished cupboards with updated hardware. What else? Drought-resistant landscaping, alley access with two parking spaces, air conditioning, fiber optic wifi ready, good storage space, a covered porch with new privacy shades, recent sewer scope, full home air duct cleaning, new groundwater containment system, and more for you to discover during your showing! This small piece of Colorado's history is looking for its next inhabitants!
