Welcome to “THE TWO-FIVE”! Designed by Eckel and Boettner, this stoic home is located on one of Saint Joseph’s hidden gems, “The Fountain Street”. Prepare to step back in time with this 3-story home originally built in 1935 for the VP of Swift Meat Packing. Some even say, he was Taylor’s great great grandfather. Prior to completion of construction, the St. Joseph Diocese was interested in purchasing the home. Bishop LeBlond’s family then purchased the property and gifted to the Catholic Church. In the 1950s, when the KC & St. Joseph Diocese merged; it was privately purchased by an individual family. This elegant brick home hails 6 bedrooms, 2 full & 3 half baths, original hardwood floors & casework throughout. Formal living and dining, kitchen & sun room. Enormous and functionally appropriate laundry on 2nd floor. Take the shared laneway up to the garage with finished loft space. This property is the epitome of high class, distinguished, early Saint Joseph. Don’t miss out on owning your own piece of local history.
