Description

INVESTORS! Can you say Air BNB? Traveling nurses need housing! Boarding or rooming house? 14 rooms, 6 bathrooms, 3 kitchens and 4 working fireplaces! Adjacent lot at 153 Cottage st included in sale! It is .47 acres. Near Bates College and hospitals. Professionals have stayed here for over 20 years when it operated as a very successful Bed & Breakfast, 'The Farnham House' from 1982 until 2004. Since then, it was used for a business. Incredible details from the original cabinetry, Terrazzo floors, woodwork, built ins and even down to the iron curtain rods. This property has only changed hands a few times since built in 1922! This century old home was built with fine craftsmanship as many along Main St were. Lots of potential to make more units. A beautiful sunporch, rear porch and huge deck off the second floor. A tree lined, large and level lawn for an amazing outdoor space. A garage under the house that can fit two smaller cars tandem. Hardwood floors throughout home, even under carpets. The third floor is set up as an apartment. Second floor also has an apartment, it could be used as a one or three bedroom or adapt to have two apartments on that floor. This is a great property for your business and have rental income. Original lighting yet updated electrical. If you love history and antiques, the seller is willing to leave some original 100 yr old treasures from Mr Farnham. The dining room furniture, Empire 1929, and his desk still sits at the top of the 3rd floor. Many upgrades such as windows, vinyl siding, roof, sheetrock, electrical, rebuilt boiler, deck, fiberoptic cable in every room! Plenty of parking if you choose to operate a business. Adjacent lot on Cottage st is available as well. City approval for many uses. Think day spa, salon, boutique, antique shop, etc. Drs, lawyers, offices etc Opportunities like this are rare with a high traffic count. so come have a look soon! City says many uses allowed, call to verify for your specific needs.
