Fantastic opportunity for developers or end users on one of Fisher Hill's most beautiful tree lined streets. Includes separate 26,705 s.f. build-able lot that will allow a home of approximately 6676 s.f. Possibilities are endless for this estate sized property. Interesting older home on the smaller 24,542 s.f. lot would need major renovations, includes a 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment with full kitchen. Existing house may be expanded to approximately 6,135 s.f., but there may be special provisions allowing even larger living area when re-using the older home. Demolition delay has already been waited out, so new owner may choose to renovate, expand, however he/she pleases. Combine both lots to allow a single family residence of over 12,000 s.f. Potential for estate with a separate dwelling/pool house by utilizing the extra lot. This is an extraordinary property, walkable to schools, shopping, and public transportation, yet with the feeling of a country estate. Owner is broker.
