The once stately Parker House, situated in a secluded neighborhood surrounded by other lovely homes, is looking for new owners to complete its renovation. The 1912 home was built by Murray Parker, a former cowboy, grocer, lawyer, state legislator, county commissioner and restaurateur. It has mostly all original woodwork, including Arts & Crafts stained glass panels on Living and Dining room built ins, fireplaces in both rooms, pocket doors, french doors, original chandeliers and a lovely carved staircase. The study had been converted to a bedroom w/full bath. There are 2 family spaces, the sun porch to the east and a snug to the west. The kitchen has been gutted and awaits your design. On the second floor, there is a huge owners suite with a fireplace, plus there is a secondary owners suite, also with fireplace. Another bedroom has an attached sunporch, and there is a cedar closet and family bath off the hall. The third floor has 2 bedrooms, a bath, a large family space plus a linen room with built-ins. Outside, there are 7 garages, two with a roughed in carriage apartment above. The property includes 13/4 acres in the heart of the city, and is close to both Wallhaven and Highland Square. It's time to find new owners who want to complete the job. Seller will do no more repairs, sold as is.
