This House Used to Be a Fire Station — And Now It’s Coming on the Market


You've probably never dreamed about living inside a fire station before -- but this home, soon to be for sale, may make you consider the idea.

​Located at 3934 Enright Ave​nue, just north of the Central West End near Grand Center​, ​the structure stands on a site that housed a fire station as early as 1900. The current building was erected in 1965 and converted to a single-family home in 1997. It's since been featured on HGTV's House Hunters not once, but twice.

​Its former provenance is still evident in its details. ​The firetruck garage is now an 1​,​800​-​square​-​foot live/work space, the bathrooms have several sinks and the dining room -- wait for it -- has a fire pole.

The current owners used the house as a home as well as photography studio (so that's what one does with that garage-turned-office!). The couple is ​relocating for work, meaning the house they never intended to leave is now an opportunity​ for you​.

The four​-​bedroom, three​-​bathroom house currently has an asking price of $425,000, and there will be an open house on May 21 from 1 - 3 p.m. Anyone interested in the house should contact broker Ted D. Disabato at TdD Premier Real Estate (727 N. First Street, Suite 310, 314-276-1318, [email protected]).
