Let your friend know about this property.
This home has it all; historic charm, tasteful design with modern conveniences plus a panoramic view of downtown Ketchikan and Tongass Narrows. This 5 bedroom 4 bath home includes a 900 SF mother-in-law apartment. If you are a history buff you will love the framed architectural blue prints prepared for the original owners (Pat & Lizzie Gilmore from County Galway, Ireland) and preserved for your enjoyment. Built in 1933 on what was then called Knob Hill the "Gilmore Home" featured a high cement foundation with two basements (one a 1-car garage) and a dumb waiter. A period appropriate remodel was done in 2001 to update the home to modern needs. The home features crown molding and picture molding throughout the main floors and original hardwood flooring in the living room. The 9' ceiling height gives the main floor a spacious feeling and the glass chandelier, wall sconces, and built-in living room fireplace complete the old world charm. Panoramic views are enjoyed from every room. A 2004 kitchen remodel provides the gourmet chef with an 8 burner Viking gas range, double oven and a massive range hood that includes warming lights. The built-in Sub Zero refrigerator has a freezer, 2 freezer drawers below the main refrigerator plus 2 crisper drawers adjacent to the main refrigerator. The German Green Stone counter top provides ample work area and the 2 built-in Fisher Paykel drawer-style dishwashers provide plenty of cleaning capacity for the busy chef. Channel views from the kitchen/dining room are truly breathtaking. Heat is provided by a newer/well maintained hot water baseboard oil fired boiler. Electrical has been upgraded with 3 well marked panels with circuit breakers. Main entry floor consists of living room, Kitchen, 3 bedrooms including a master suite with a 3/4 bath, and a second full bathroom. Upstairs features an impressive family room, 3/4 bath and an area for housing overnight guests. Modern water tight skylights add natural light and charm to the upper floor. The lower floor includes utility/laundry room and the 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. The apartment has a separate private entrance. Below the apartment is a one car garage. This is truly a unique home displaying old world charm and attention to detail alongside modern conveniences. Outside there is just enough grass to justify ownership of a lawnmower and an attached open deck perfect for outdoor barbecue.
