Under $100k Sunday ~ c.1915 Handyman Special in St. Anthony ID $95K ~ Off Market

335 N 1st E, Saint Anthony, ID, 83445       $95,000 ~ Off Market 


I am guessing that this brick handyman special in Saint Anthony, Idaho (pop. 3,542) was the home of a Mormon family that settled in town in 1915. Many of the older homes built by Mormons in Utah and Idaho have similar design styles.
The town, in fact, was founded by members of the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1888. City streets are plotted in a grid pattern with names like 335 N 1st E or 115 E 2nd N. It is supposed to make things easier, but it confuses me when I visit towns in the western states. Thus, I was unable to find specific historic information on this one.
The tiled fireplace and built-in cupboard are showstoppers!


You’re going to FLIP when you see this one of a kind 1915 handyman special home! The brick and stone exterior, combined with the scalloped peaks, and newer metal roof provide beautiful existing charm that you won’t find anywhere else.
The character and potential of the home is showcased further as you enter the home and are greeted with high ceilings, wood beams, French doors, stained glass windows, an original wood-burning stove and multiple original wood doors, transom windows, and a swinging door that leads from the living room into the back of the home toward the bedrooms and bathroom.
Under the existing carpet, at least through the main living area, there is original hardwood flooring that is just waiting to be restored. The pitch of the roof lines has left ample space in the attic for additional living space just waiting to be utilized by someone with the proper vision. In the unfinished basement you will be surprised to find a newer gas furnace and water heater, as well as some updated plumbing and electrical.
If you’ve wanted to find a home that you can put your personal stamp on and bring out your inner HGTV, don’t wait to come see this historic home!

    Interestingly, this home was built by a single man who owned a retail business in St Anthony. At that time, it was not as Mormon of a place to live, as the railroad was booming and the city’s population was far greater than it had been before or has ever been since. For about two decades in the early 1900’s, St. Anthony was known as “Little Chicago” because of the gambling, bars, brothels etc.
