"This place checks all the boxes! Located in an X500 flood zone (no Flood Ins needed), off street, covered parking, room for a pool, updated, freshly painted, work shop/storage space, income producing separate 1/1 +loft unit, wonderful outside entertaining areas. Truly an entertainers delight with open kitchen/living room area that opens to the gorgeous, fenced in back yard with accessory unit that can be enclosed. Oh, and gas appliances, hardwood floors, central A/C. Move right in and enjoy the duplex that can be easily converted to a single family home! Priced to sell!"
I found an old photo of this property taken in 1965 (below). The note on the back of the black and white photo states that 1114 Watson Street was built in 1890. I will bet the front porch was added or remodeled to add the stucco siding sometime in the 1950s or early 1960s. Compare the black and white photo with the color photo I took. The shed addition to the right has been transformed into a carport - a novelty for the Old Town area. Just behind the carport is an extra large storeroom which a new owner might attempt to convert into an extra bathroom or put to some other use.
This house is laid out like many cigar maker cottages with rooms the run from front to back off a side corridor. The main level living area has been relocated to the rear of the home. A recent kitchen and family area open out to the covered IPE deck. This is the area of the home where most living will take place - especially if the new owner adds a pool to the backyard. The covered IPE deck will provide well shade from our hot sun.
