ATTENTION INVESTORS! Here's your chance to own a unique home in the heart of West Point. This is a 3 story home built in 1898 that was used in the early 1900's as a POS of A (Patriotic Order Sons of America) meeting hall. The home features 2 separate townhouse style (2 story) residences, plus 2 additional 3rd story 1 bedroom apartments. Entry to the 3rd story apartments is through a private entrance and hall in the center of the home (both front and rear access). This hallway also contains the laundry facilities for the 2 apartments. One townhouse features 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor along with a full bath. There is a powder room on the 1st floor of the home, along with new laminate flooring throughout the living room, dining room, and kitchen. This half features a full unfinished basement. The 2nd townhouse features 4 bedrooms and 1 bath on the 2nd story, also with laminated flooring in the living room and dining room. This side also features an unfinished basement. Both homes feature eat in kitchens plus a large common wooden deck in the rear. There are 2 separate 1 car detached garages (both of which need some repair work) plus rear parking for 5 cars.
