Here is an amazing opportunity to own your piece of the historic Old North End of Colorado Springs! This home at 212 East Madison is full of original character and is move-in ready.
This Home’s History
This Old North End home was built in 1895, and owned by General William Jackson Palmer, the founder of Colorado Springs, until 1900 when it was sold to Alex Adams, the 3rd police chief of Colorado Springs (1905-1908).
Its 19th century architecture incorporates elements of the Queen Anne and Gable End Frame styles that are popular in the Old North End.
This historically-significant home has huge potential: this home is completely move in ready, but still has lots of untapped potential, too! Already completed are upgraded windows, Pex plumbing, remodeled bathrooms with period decor including clawfoot tubs, and most of the home has seen drywall replace the original lath and plaster walls. All four of the bedrooms in this home are above-grade, and the white picket fence and porch swing are just the icing on the cake of this home’s charm!
Main living area
The main living area in this home is bright and spacious, featuring the original coal-burning fireplace, wood floors, and a beautiful cut-glass window transom above the front window.
Kitchen and Dining
Step right from your dining room through the French doors to the huge wooden deck out back – perfect for entertaining! On cool summer nights, you can throw open the doors and have the party both inside and outside. You’ll love the stained glass window in the dining room that perfectly reflects the period decor.
The kitchen features lots of cabinet space with some beautiful glass-front cabinetry! Just off the kitchen is a nook for an additional dining area or kitchen expansion.
Main Floor Bedrooms & Bathroom
The main floor features two bedrooms, both featuring closets and one with additional built-in storage.
The main floor bathroom has been fully-remodeled in period decor, including a clawfoot tub and subway tile.
Upstairs Bedrooms & Bathroom
Upstairs, you’ll find two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has two closets, and the second bedroom has a bonus room off the back. The upstairs bathroom has been fully remodeled in period decor, including a clawfoot tub.
You’ll find a laundry area in the unfinished basement, along with plenty of room for additional storage.
Carriage House with Loft & Backyard
Step outside onto the huge back deck and enjoy a view of the fenced backyard and carriage house to the back of the property. The carriage house is original to the home and also features a loft above. (Be sure to watch the video for a peek at the loft!) And, here is plenty of off-street parking for this home.
