Property Description

The real deal! This house is authentic Arts and Crafts- a highly prized architectural style. Homes like this are not built anymore, solid brick, 2x6 construction, plaster walls, paneled doors and double hung windows. This unique property was originally owned by George Keogan, the Notre Dame basketball coach of 1929. Keogan not only coached the men's team, he won a national championship in 1936. This greatly loved brick home was built in 1929. It is historically landmarked and has had only five owners in almost 100 years.---two in the last 50. Originally called the "House without Corners" because of its unusual rolled roof and coved ceilings it is definitely one of a kind although it would be right at home in the Arts and Crafts neighborhoods of Pasadena. The 1480 sq.' on the upper level contains a large living room, a dining room, 2/3 bedrooms (or 2 bedrooms and one den), kitchen. full bath and all weather sunroom looking out at a brick driveway and beautiful side yard with valuable, professionally maintained mature trees. An accompanying fenced 43,560 sq. ft. (1/3 acre) safe, grass lot with large storage shed is for sale separately across the alley. Right of first refusal goes to the buyer. There is an easily accessed unfinished walkup attic which could creatively be turned into a great play area. The large unfinished basement has a laundry, four work/storage rooms and a full bath. The kitchen, while dated, has its original retro cabinets and breakfast bar but a new, quality stainless steel dishwasher and counter depth refrigerator. These stay with the house. Many upgrades were done by the present owner including a new state of the art roof while other upgrades have been left intentionally unfinished so as to reflect the new owner's tastes and preferences. If you are looking for something very different than a flip house come see 1922 Portage. This kind of solid construction can't be bought anymore nor history built into this, once again, thoroughly unique and loved property. Pre-qualified buyers only please.
