Historically significant 1890 Romanesque-style mansion designed by architect F.S. Allen for quarry magnate Marcus Krakar. The conversion to its current 5 apartments was done carefully to keep intact the beautiful woodwork, moldings and doors. First time on the market since the 1980s. The 1st and 2nd floor units are all large one bedrooms with one full bath, formal dining rooms, fireplace, high 10’-10.5’ ceilings, beautiful stained glass windows and original woodwork. The 3rd floor has a unique large lofty 2-bedroom unit with laundry hook up. In addition to a 3-car garage and 8 tandem surface parking spaces, there is an original stone carriage house. The garage and carriage house are being used for storage. The unfinished basement has unusually high ceilings with quarry floors. The location is close to downtown Joliet, the river and Limacher park. This a unique property that doesn’t come along very often!
