Home of the Week – Grand Units With Secret Nightclub

June 6, 2008

Sometimes I think it’s the secrets that houses are hiding that keeps me excited about this business. I saw this building on Tuesday Tour when it first came on the market and as I climbed staircase after staircase, what I couldn’t believe was just how HUGE and grand and elegant it must have been before it fell into neglect. But when I got to the top floor, I found the real prize – an “underground” nightclub with a top of the world view!! I had a good time imagining the late night jazz parties had taken place here back in what looked like the 1940s. If you want to relive the past yourself,  it will be open this Sunday 12 to 12:45 or by appointment. The address is 821-823 Fillmore. The price has been reduced to $1,499,000 and it tops 6000 square feet. It is listed by Jennifer Kauffman of Zephyr and Kyle Kirk of Vanguard. More info is available here.
