Tour stop 10: 1038 Lee St.

Smart move:

This stacked 2-family home has an owner-occupied apartment on the first floor with a 3-bedroom apartment that takes up the 2nd and 3rd floors. The late 1800’s house was built this way and the new owners consider it a smart investment, since the rent will pay for their mortgage. Each unit has a washer and dryer, exposed brick and beautiful granite countertops in “Black Mist.” Although this project was basically a total “gut job,” the developer was able to retain the original staircase to the 2nd floor. There are two off-street parking spaces in the back.
