Investors & Developers take notice! The Historic CHTJ Southard House is priced to sell and can be readily converted back to apartments or consider office space, condo units or combined office and residential units. Built circa 1870, this well preserved Victorian style home was purchased in 1888 by shipping magnate TJ Southard who gifted the home to his son, Charles, as a wedding present. The home has gone through several phases of restoration by the current owners who converted the mansion into the Southard House Museum in 1990. One highlight that remains from the museum is the observation room located in the top level of the turret and offers stunning views of the Maine Kennebec Bridge, Swan Island, the Kennebec River and downtown Main Street. Situated in the heart of Richmond, the mansion offers developers and investors opportunities for offices, apartments, condo conversion, B&B potential, and ample parking space. The carriage house offers many possibilities as office, residential, storage space or convert to a multi-vehicle garage. Southard House offers a total of 6 bathrooms in the mansion and a half bath in the carriage house, 4 functional kitchens including an intact studio apartment, over 7500 SF of finished living space, ample paved parking in the rear of property, mature landscaping, lovingly restored tin ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, and original hand painted artwork along walls of the main gallery. Rich in history and loved by its community, the Southard House offers so many opportunities for the next proud owner of this renowned landmark in Richmond.
