"Historic Downtown Home from the late 1800's just a few steps from the Seaport. There are 6 charming apartments each with old town architectural appeal. A mixture of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units. Small garden area with a tropical feel and many porches for tenants to enjoy."
I considered buying this property and the adjacent Artist House guest house (located next door at 534 Eaton Street) when that owner at that time was tinkering with the idea of selling both buildings. He had been renting rooms at 400 Simonton Street as part of the guest house. I don't know if he ever got caught because that is not permitted. That owner sold both properties to different people. The Artist House has sold at least twice since then. Today the property at 400 Simonton Street is licensed to rent six non-transient long term rentals.
I took a couple of not-so-good photos of the bricked courtyard and was reminded that the area was previously used as a small cafe. I think that space is quite lovely but very under utilized today.
