Lawrence, KS: For Sale - 1860s Queen Anne Just 4 Blocks From Mass Street And 15 Minute Walk To KU

Great Victorian House, Excellent Price, Prime Location

1104 New York Street, Lawrence, Kansas 66044

PRICE RAISED! $154,900

This quaint, mid-1800s home has been completely updated while maintaining its original details and charm. Perfect for a small family or students who want to walk to downtown with its numerous restaurants and bars or to KU, just a short 10-15 minute walk away. Old East Lawrence is the centerpiece of the city's exciting new Arts District, having a historic and eclectic feel with many new businesses moving in and 19th Century homes being renovated.

This charming 1860s two-story home with front and side porches is just a short walk from downtown (Massachusetts Street) and 10-15 minute walk to University of Kansas (KU) campus.

Beautiful cherry cabinets in kitchen with butcher-block counter tops, large, open living room, laundry room, and large bedroom on main level - built in 1860s. Two bedrooms and bath on second level - added in 1900. Bathroom has original clawfoot tub and shower, having been completely remodeled in 2015.

Original fieldstone foundation was renovated in 2015. New energy saving furnace and air conditioner as well as ductwork installed throughout the home in 2013. Recently painted inside and out. Hardwood floors in stairwell, landing, and all of second floor renovated in 2014. New $5000 sump system installed in 2014. Plumbing and electrical recently updated.

Large yard on three sides has pond in the back, all recently having been completely reseeded. Several large trees provide plenty of shade, reducing energy consumption and large rear patio coverage in summer. 

This "Queen Anne" Victorian is located in historic Old East Lawrence, just 3 blocks from downtown Lawrence (restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theatres, shopping), short walking distance to the University of Kansas campus, and in the center of Lawrence's new and flourishing Arts District.

Built in the 1860's, this may be one of the few wooden structures that survived the torches of Quantrill's raid on August 21, 1863. With three bedrooms and one bath, a large yard with pond, and off street parking, this 2-story home is in excellent condition and ready to move in.

If sale can be completed without realtors, there would be a savings of a 6% which we would rather pass on to the buyer. We will be happy to share the appraisal with serious buyers. 

This home will not be available for long because of the excellent condition of the house and its location, within easy walking distance to downtown and the University of Kansas campus. 

Once listed in March 2017, the 6% savings will no longer be an option and home will sell for full appraisal price.
