This property is being marketed by Prism Real Estate Solutions. This home is extraordinary and not in a way one might expect. The character of this home embodies resiliency, tenacity, and strength. Built in 1878, Wyoming was still a territory and did not become our 44th state until1890. The Holliday family built the asymmetrical Victorian mansion with its original location at 319 Garfield Street in Laramie WY. The home was strategically moved to its current location years later in 1978. The mansion is 145 years old. It has experienced the old west, the development of Laramie, electricity in the home, invention of the automobile, women’s right to vote, our ability to travel through flight, two World Wars, several other significant Wars and Conflict, the great Depression, The Civil Rights Movement, Political Turmoil, the Fight against Terrorism and at least three major Pandemics. Moving a home of this size is no easy task. The easiest thing to do is would have been to demolish it rather than deconstruct and reconstruct to its current location four miles out of town. The decision makers in 1978 willing to take this endeavor clearly felt that it was worth the effort. This property is ready to be discovered by its new owner! If you are willing see the possibilities for this restoration project, have a vision and can invest some time and energy this could be the perfect opportunity for you! This home has had many owners and has been used for a variety of purposes. It has been a single-family residence, is has been used as a place to conduct business and multi-family property. Currently there is the main house with six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The basement apartment has three bedrooms and one bathroom. There is a large one bedroom one bath apartment attached to the main house. Detached from the main house in the courtyard area are two one-bedroom apartments and one studio apartment. The combined total is six units, twelve bedrooms, eight bathrooms, six kitchens. This is a three-acre property just outside of city limits in West Laramie. There are several outbuildings including an 840 square foot Quonset hut that could be used to store recreational vehicles or become a workshop or art studio. The current owners installed a new electric furnace for the main house, painted the exterior, installed a reverse osmosis system for the well and made improvements to the septic tank. Two of the bathrooms in the main house need repair work completed to be fully functional.
