Property Description
Welcome Home to this turn of the century Swiss Chalet located in the historic West Colfax corridor of downtown South Bend. Built in 1903 by Francis Keefer for Studebaker executive Horace Kauffman, this Indiana Landmark has been lovingly maintained and restored throughout the years. Full of potential, this home has served as a single family residence, Superhost Airbnb/rental and even the rectory for St Paul's up the street. The 5 bed / 5 bath beauty boasts gorgeous oak woodwork throughout its three stories. Recent upgrades include a newer roof, gutters (2018), boiler (2017), updated electric and plumbing, restored hardwoods and A/C mini-splits (2020). Many more improvements (see attached documentation) make this home worry-free and move-in ready for a family, a fully furnished turnkey rental/Airbnb/house hack opportunity or both. An inviting covered front porch is a perfect space for morning coffee or evening refreshments. The large entryway shows off the beautiful woodwork including pocket doors, gorgeous mission style banisters and a wrapped oak staircase with storage. Two spacious living rooms and a beautiful formal dining room create a lovely flow perfect for entertaining! The kitchen functions nicely with plenty of cabinet and storage space in the large Butler’s pantry and a fantastic newly built center island. The second floor boasts 4 ample sized bedrooms each with their own bath. Even more living space on the third floor functions as extra recreational or lounge space complete with an additional full bath. An off-street parking pad located in the back leads to your private backyard oasis. It’s the perfect space to grill out on the newer deck, relax in the hot tub or lounge around the firepit while the kids play in the oversized backyard. A piece of South Bend history is awaiting its next steward!
