Looking for love: This classic Greek Revival in the William Street Historic District is a diamond-in-the-rough awaiting restoration to its former glory. In days of yore, Capt. George W. Eldridge, originator of the renowned Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book, had the home built for his sister Abbe. Today, the future potential for "The Eldridge House" abounds: Maintain the three existing living units or refashion the premises into a grand single family home. Incorporate a professional home office, if you wish. Turn the lofty, unfinished attic into a 3rd story living space. Return the elegant balconies that once graced the front of the house. If you recreate a single family home, add a guest house in the generous backyard with the towering Catawba trees and antique ballast stone fence. The septic system was upgraded and certified for 6 bedrooms in 2011. This project lover's opportunity can become one of William Street's finest properties, in walking distance to all the conveniences of town and harbor. Priced below assessed value. To be sold "as is." Architectural drawings for a three-unit renovation are included in the sale.
