524 West Church Street

1915

This unique Prairie Style home was built in 1915 for Mr. George Peck, and house was said to cost $35,000 at the time to build. Mr. Peck opened his first Hardware store in 1911 at 216 W. Water Street, and proceeded to expand to 10 locations in the area. He went on to become mayor of Elmira from 1920-1921, when his administration oversaw the opening of a new Main Street bridge and the Steele Memorial Library. The home was divided into two apartments in the 1950, and further into four apartment's in the later part of the 20th century.

We purchased this home in 2010, bringing new life to its many unique features representing various styles of the early 20th century, from Victorian, to Craftsman, to Modern. The building contains four apartments; three 1-bedrooms and one massive 2-bedroom loft. Other features of this unique building include hardwood floors, working fireplaces, French doors, leaded-glass windows, sitting porches on both floors, and a unique third-floor loft space. Additional amenities and utilities at this building include a laundry center, off-street parking, water, sewer, and trash collection.
