Prime East Washington Street location! This amazing colonial revival home is rich with Muncie history and was built in 1898 by Loan and Lillian Franklin. Loan started his business career at the age of 17 and became the owner of one of the largest livery barns in Delaware County. The 1912 Emerson City directory lists at that time that he was a real estate broker and owner of Franklin's Vehicle Co, manufacturer and repairer of carriages. Lillian was active in the community, including the Ladies Matinee Musicale. And now is your chance to own this beautiful piece of history! This house is full of original details, character, and charm! The main floor features beautiful tile and a built in bench by the front door, beautiful hardwood floors, 2 fireplaces, built in book cases, a butlers pantry, amazing pocket doors, and trim throughout. There is the large living room, office/ parlor, dining room, large kitchen, and half bath on the main floor. The windows in this home are huge, many featuring original wavy glass, and they provide great views of Washington street and downtown. The kitchen is a very large space offering tons of possibilities. As you go up to the second floor, you will love the details in the stairway. The stairs open to a large landing area that would be a perfect place to have a reading nook. There are 4 large bedrooms on the second floor along with the full bath. The full bath features a large clawfoot tub. The third floor is a blank slate, ready for your vision! Once a rec room with pool table, this space could once again be a family room, converted to a master suite, or studio space. The possibilities are endless. This home does need some TLC and does not have a functioning heat source. Seller is willing to escrow $22,000 for a new ducted HVAC system. Because of this, this home will not qualify for a traditional mortgage. Cash or a rehab loan is most likely the options available for a buyer. This home is located in the Emily Kimbrough Historic District. If you have wanted to live in a fantastic downtown neighborhood, now is your chance to make this beautiful home your own!
