Welcome to the Ezra T Nelson house. This was the original house in this area of Heritage Hill, dating back to the 1860s. When the house was built, it faced Fulton and sat up on the hill overlooking the surrounding land. (See documents for more history). Gas lights greet you as you walk up the sidewalk and past the brick patio and gardens. NORTH SIDE: Beautiful owner's unit is 2500+ sq feet with 11 foot ceilings, stained glass, leaded glass, maple & oak floors, 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 fireplaces, marble extrerior trim, full basement. There is also a large entry porch and a second floor balcony above. Rooftop Belvedere could be opened up for interesting additional space. The Living Room has a special 'closet' that was the original 'safe room' with locked cabinets. Also - the home has 2 small areas that walls could be removed between the 2 units, making it a larger owner unit/single family with over 3600 sq ft. SOUTH SIDE:Original Maids Quarters was enlarged and turned into an apartment. Lots of updating in 2013 and 2014. In 2015 all the electrical was replaced on the owner's side 2nd floor. Exterior painted gray 2020. Current owner has lived here 7 years and the previous owner lived here 40+ years. Current owner has researched with the city the possibilty of adding a driveway (and parking slab or garage) on the north side of the property. Should a drive way, driveway/garage, or turning the home into a single family be desired - more information is required from the City of Grand Rapids and Heritage Hill.
