***Huge Price Adjustment*** Welcome to 201-203 E. Martin Street -- a great live/work opportunity! Built pre-Civil War for B&O Railroad management, this stable and stately home has stood the test of time, all the while watching several of America's most significant historic events unfolded on its doorstep. This historic property is just steps from the historic B&O roundhouse which saw significant activity and destruction during the Civil War and was the origin of the Great Railroad strike of 1877. In modern day, you can walk less than a block to the same, historically restored train station to board the commuter train to Washington, D.C. or take the Amtrak to Chicago, Washington D.C. and all points beyond. For local social and cultural experience, go no further than your own downtown neighborhood to experience and participate in Martinsburg's booming revitalization of shops, dining and entertainment. Interested purchasers of this property shall have an eye for historic architecture and an affinity for historic, unique and special interest real estate. They shall see the tremendous value that comes with originality and know that replicating lost details is an exponential expense. Fortunately for the enthusiast, this property's historic and architectural integrity remains almost fully intact and is ready for a the enterprising new owner's touch. Long ago converted to a mixed use retail/residential property, entering the old store is like stepping back in time -- right down to the existence of the original skeleton key to the store's front door. Unique to the exterior of the home is the the Greek Revival styling with hip roof and bracketed cornice. The 6/6 window sashes and 4/4 store windows remain intact, as well as most of the interior moldings and trim. Cosmetic improvements and removal of some 20th Century alternations may be of necessity to some, but this built-to-last property is usable and functional in its current "shabby chic" presentation. Inside, there are spacious formal rooms, four bedrooms, a huge attic, a commercial storefront/office/service space and a full basement with old cooking kitchen. While updates over the years have been few, the original elements remain. To the rear of the main building, you will find a two-story, wood-sided "creamery" that was also historically a fruit exchange. Having had very little modification over the past 160+ years, this building looks very similar to the way it was when built during the Civil War era. Beyond the creamery, adjoining an additional 2500sqft lot, stands a sturdy, wooden barn with three private parking bays and ample storage above. The coming to market of rare, original properties such as this are an uncommon occurrence. Potential buyers with an entrepreneurial spirit will be attracted to the uniqueness this property provides as a great slate for work/live, SRO, multi-unit, multi-use or residence. Zoned for downtown business, close to the commuter train, commuter routes, local industries, local hospitality and nightlife -- the gorgeous, historic Apollo Theater is on an opposing corner -- the opportunities are only limited by your imagination. Call now to schedule a showing.
