This exquisite brick mansion has a commanding view over Main St. and Bowery St. It immediately catches the eye and captures the heart of nearly everyone who passes by it. Past and present, it is still intriguing and beautiful. Excellent Investment opportunity for business or residential with flexible zoning. Circa 1855, the architectural style of this elegant home is “Greek Revival / Italianate” which is somewhat rare in Allegany County. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built of solid brick, 11 wythes thick, it is a true “fixer upper.” Once a fine home in its day it is one of only a few homes like it (as far as brick and architecture) that still exist on Main Street in Frostburg's Historic District. The current owners have done ALL THE HEAVY LIFTING to the exterior and foundation. This was a monumental undertaking that took months. Using historically correct lime- based mortar, fresh tuckpointing of the stone foundation and brick exterior walls have all been completed recently. The oversized, solid granite front steps were repurposed from a building in Connecticut. A new stone veneer retaining wall runs the entire width of the property. This unique gem anxiously awaits a creative, compassionate new owner with vision and an open mind. Although it will require a complete restoration, a beautiful blank canvas awaits! With a thoughtful and sympathetic design, embellish the interior with crave-worthy modern amenities & fixtures. Given a second chance, it can become a newly curated blend of history, architecture and modern convenience that will last another 100 years! Spread the wings of imagination over the 3500 square feet of large rooms, soaring ceilings and natural light! A new gas, Hot water boiler was installed in 2021 and the cast iron radiators and wood floors keep the space comfy and cozy in the cold months. The property is eligible for financial Incentives such as grants and tax credits because it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Flexible zoning (Residential/ Office ) and “Opportunity Zone” sweeten the possibilities even more! Subject to approval. Architects, Attorneys and Artists ! Hunting for a creative space with a prominent, professional vibe? This is it! #Urban Downtown meets Quiet Small Town! Near restaurants, shops, groceries, W. Md. Scenic RR, Frostburg State University and the Gap Trail. Your creativity will soar with the huge windows and tall ceilings! Natural light pours into the space!
