Description

EPIC FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY for a home buyer, entrepreneur, or real estate investor to claim a beautifully RESTORED registered HISTORIC property with HOTEL, RESTAURANT and PUB! The Booker-Lewis is a fully furnished, MULTIPURPOSE property of 4 HOMES that served locals, tourists, and corporate contracts in its most recent use as a hospitality venture. As residences, a hotel/restaurant and event venue, rental income, a home business... YOU HAVE IMMEDIATE OPTIONS! The Booker-Lewis property is named after its main residence, which is registered with the National Registry of Historic Places as a circa 1920s Queen Ann Colonial Revival house. The inviting wrap around porch is the first of many features typical of the Queen Anne and Colonial Revival architectural styles. Others include the grand foyer with sweeping staircase, large main rooms, high ceilings, and tall windows. The home was meticulously restored to retain its original wood flooring and trim, 3 fireplaces, stained glass, and most of its windows and light fixtures. It offers 2-4 bedrooms and 6 baths. The most recent renovation included the large commercial catering kitchen, electrical and HVAC systems, and an ADA compliant access ramp and restrooms. Two of the upstairs bedrooms were used as a conference/private dining room and executive office with en suite. The house combines the elegance of a bygone era with casual comfort that makes you feel at home. Next door, the Ward House is situated on the corner of the lot and is a 1905 Arts and Craft style home. It was completely renovated in 2009 to offer modern amenities and ADA compliance, while retaining its original charm and architectural features. The inviting front porch leads to the 3 living areas, currently a reception and European-style pub, which can easily be retrofitted. The house offers 6 spacious bedrooms with full baths, and a lower level ADA half bath. Next to the pub is a kitchen with one of the home's two commercial chillers. The upper level has a tempered glass firewall, wide hallway, and private balcony. Each floor has its own utility room. The Ward House has a reputation for providing gracious hospitality throughout its long history. Around the corner on North 4th Street, Stewart Lodge is a 1929 bungalow offering 3 large bedrooms with 3 baths and 3 private decks. The home has been remodeled and retains its original shiplap walls, wood flooring, and fireplace. The living room has two seating areas and the large dining room flows onto the sun room and back deck, making it perfect for entertaining. The lodge-style furnishings and antiques complement the original architectural features, providing a casually comfortable place to live and relax. Behind Stewart Lodge is the quaint La Casita Cottage, a one-room efficiency with bath and kitchenette. The private cottage is well-suited as a guest house or caretaker's quarters. The property includes all furnishings, antiques, accessories, kitchen appliances and equipment, window treatments, extensive inventory for the restaurant, hotel, and pub, flat-screen televisions, computers and office equipment, a greenhouse, multiple storage areas, and the contents of an additional storage unit. Graced with the beautifully landscaped grounds, stately trees that provide inviting shade, and garden tended lovingly over decades, the property offers porches, terraces, winding paths, seating areas, and a large central commons for outside entertaining and special events.
