69 Johnson Park, WOW!!!!

A spectacular and unusual Buffalo house is fresh on the market.  The immaculate Victorian charmer at 69 Johnson Park can be had for just under $550 grand. The house is unusual because the owners have brought it back to its true Victorian roots inside and out.  The rooms are stuffed to the gills with intricate detail and historic furniture, much like you see in vintage images or a period house museum.  It is a sight to behold.  The fussy vintage interior decor may not be to everyone’s taste but there is no denying that this is one of Buffalo’s most spectacular houses.

Here is the pitch:

Absolutely amazing, one-of-a-kind, period-authentic Victorian located in an incredibly desirable area right on Johnson Park, steps from downtown, the medical campus, the waterfront & Elmwood Village. This lovingly maintained all-brick home w/ off-street parking boasts stunning hand painted ceilings w/ plaster crown & medallions, original ornate fireplaces, hardwood floors, pocket doors & original working gas lamps & chandelier. The updated kitchen boasts wood cabinets, tile backsplash & granite counters. Relax while sitting on your front porch overlooking the park or enjoy the privacy of the fully fenced & landscaped yard. Unwind on the covered/enclosed rear porch. No detail has been overlooked in the restoration of this beautiful & historically significant home. OH – Sat 1-3 & Sun 11-1

This is a wonderful part of the city, which is seeing  a lot of new investment with many conveniences nearby. Houses on each side have recently undergone extensive renovation.  The park out the front door is a bonus.  The listing says it was built in 1855 but that seems 10 or 20 years too old to me.

3,307 and not 4,582 – lot square footage)

It has 3,307 sq.’ (4,582 sq.’ – lot square footage), including eight bedrooms, library, entry hall, and two full baths.  Fireplaces seem to be everywhere. Taxes are shown at $2,196.  Note that the house is open this weekend for viewing. Definitely check out the realtor link above where you will find about three times as many images as included here.
