From the Zillow listing:


This property is NOT in foreclosure! This once stately home was built by M.S. Long in 1912, and is situated in a secluded neighborhood surrounded by other lovely homes, is looking for new owners to complete its renovation. The Architects were Hagloch & Potter, who also designed at least one Carnegie Library. It was later purchased by Murray Parker, a former cowboy, grocer, lawyer, state legislator, county commissioner and restauranteur. It has mostly all original red oak woodwork on the first floor, living room & dining room fireplaces, pocket doors, french doors, 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 den to the west. The kitchen has been gutted and awaits your design. On the second floor, the floors are red gum (eucalyptus) and there is a huge owners suite with a fireplace. There is a secondary ensuite and another bedroom has an attached sunporch. Off the main hall upstairs, there’s a family bath, cedar closet and maids closet (future laundry?). The third floor has 2 bedrooms, a bath, a large bonus space plus a linen room with built-ins. Outside, there are 7 garages, two have a roughed in carriage apartment above. The property includes 1.65 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 project. Seller will do no more repairs, sold as is.
