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 Avenue, 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]).
