The developer who owns the home and land at 2200 32nd Ave West has put it up for sale, effectively killing the plan to put townhomes on the site.
Neighbors with homes bordering the property next to Bartells were concerned about the impact of having ten three story townhomes so close to their backyards. In 2008 they gathered petition signatures to keep the city from rezoning the property to multi-family use. A hearing officer agreed with their appeal to keep the area zoned for single family homes.
The listing agent says developer Meridian Greenfield decided to sell the property instead of pursuing the townhome plan. The 21,406 square foot lot includes mature trees, a carriage house, garage with loft, 2 large stone fireplaces, hardwoods, and cherry cabinets plus a $50,000 allowance to finish the remodel to the buyers specifications. The property can be sub-divided into four or five lots by a new owner.
It is interesting to note that the property sold for $921,500 in 2003, was sold again in 2006 sold for $1,600,000 and is on the market now for $1,499,950.
