What a cupcake of a house! The realtor’s build date of 1920 is off, because the address is mentioned in a 1908 blurb in the Pittsburg-Daily Headline.
This was the home of Stephen Spry Geatches and Elizabeth Ann Craig Geatches in the 1900s to the 1910s. Stephen was an English immigrant, and Elizabeth a Scottish immigrant. Stephen made a good living as a building contractor, and the couple lived in the home with their children Harry and Alice. Sadly, Alice passed away before her ninth birthday.
Great neighborhood and plenty of off-street parking for this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home with a large basement. Alarm system is installed and comes with the home. The inside is ready to be moved into but the outside will require some updating. Antique fireplace, 10 foot ceilings, original trim, baseboards and door knobs. New roof in 2010 and recently upgraded to central heat and air.
