Property Description

One of Marquette's finest 19th Century homes, built for the Daniel H. Merritt Family. Mr. Merritt was a pioneer industrialist of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and this home mirrors his successful career. Originally built as a single family home, it later evolved into 10 amazing apartments. You will be only the fourth owner. Various records show the home being built between 1880-1886. Described as Italianate in design with Second Empire overtones. Built with locally quarried sandstone having gorgeous hues of maroon and fawn colored swirls. I love to imagine all of the craftsmen that built this jewel. The interior is equally fabulous. You will appreciate the extensive walnut and cherry woods. How many homes have an observatory and ornamental ironwork? Ornate balusters and newel posts, hardwood mosaic floors, molded trim and corner blocks, and brass hardware. The current owners want someone who will appreciate this special home and continue caring for it! They have a deep love of the building, family and long-time tenants. The backyard goes down the ridge to Lakeshore Blvd. There were two other structures there long ago. The tax ID shows zoning as multi family; you could return it to a splendid single family, change the floor plans and units, and live there too. The frontage on Lakeshore show MDW District on Marquette City maps; rare possibilites. Don't do anything, and be assured of nothing being built to destroy this view of the Lower Harbor & Lake Superior, or add to it. What about an infinity edge pool, tennis, or a glass home that continues down the bluff? Maybe add to your community - seller has older plans to develop along Lakeshore Blvd. The lot is just shy of 1 acre, has parking for 20 vehicles, and a 2.5 car detached garage. One thing for sure, we cannot make more land or locations like this one! Maybe you want to start fresh and have been waiting for an opportunity just like this. Is this your vacation spot, investment, family compound? Check out the city events calendar and see all that happens in the Lower Harbor each year. This is a very active Arts community. Is this you? Grab a slip at the marina; you can see your vessel from your house! Walkable to shopping, cafes, live theater, brewpubs, library, parks, and many restaurants. Do you know about our trail systems? You can use them all year. Calling all walkers, bikers, sailors, and extreme athletes! Still, the nostalgia exists on East Ridge Street. Talk about fun neighbors too. I can personally tell you that you're in great company! You will want to decorate your home for the Holidays! You will have deer in your city yard - a really Big Buck frequents the ridge. Who needs TV? You have the best views out most windows. You undeniably have THE BEST covered verandas in the entire city. 410 E Ridge St. has been particularly well preserved. It's among the most architecturally significant homes in Marquette. Why buy a condo is the question? You can own this instead!
