115-117 College Avenue
This large apartment home was initially built by Antoine Romer, a merchant tailor, as a double house in 1880. During the 1890's, Mr. Romer lived on one side, and Mr. Stewart Thompkins of Thompkins, Fassett, and Crocker , wholesale grocers, lived on the other side. By 1930, the building had been further carved up, and was known as 'The Margareta'' with rooms for rent. During the 1950's, it became a multiple-family apartment house. This is a classic example of the Victorian Romanesque style used with controlled exuberance for a private building. The 1970's saw a fire claim the third floor, resulting in it's rebuilding in a starkly different style.
We purchased this property in 2013, fixing and updating wherever possible. The first two floors each contain two studios and two 1-bedrooms, with two large 2-bedroom penthouse units on the third floor. Highlights of this incredible building include multiple ornate fireplaces, sunny bay windows, historic woodwork, custom lighting, exposed brick, and some units even have private porches/balconies.
