The Ultimate Mansion "Fixer" : 809 Jefferson St, Huntington IN

This home has been featured on numerous blogs, yet it remains unsold and on the market for over 200 days. Do you NEED a 17,492 sq ft home? Probably not but surely someone is out there who can not only afford the initial reasonable cost of admission but has the "deep pockets" required to bring this grandest of mansions back to its former glory.

A rare opportunity to own a piece of Huntington history is now available. The Purviance House was built around the turn-of-the-century and was the premier home on historic North Jefferson Street. The home features over 9,000 square feet on two levels. This square footage does not include the basement of 4,500 sq. ft. or the attic with 20' ceilings that was planned to be a ballroom with another 3,900 sq. ft. The total square footage of the house is 17,492.

The owner has invested over $500,000 in preserving the structure but has decided not to renovate the interior. This property will require much renovation as there is currently no HVAC, plumbing, electrical, kitchen or baths. The woodwork is original and there are 10 fireplaces throughout the house. The grand staircase was a work of art including stained glass windows, a seating area and a mosaic tile fireplace. There is, also, back stairway. The views from the two balconies are phenomenal overlooking downtown Huntington. This property could once again be a beautiful home in Huntington with your ideas to finish the restoration. Federal Tax Credits could be available to a new owner along with possible State Credits so speak with your financial planner.
