Colonial Revival built in 1929
Showings begin Friday 9/11. Yes, the home is AMAZING, but the lifestyle it delivers is even better. Park your cars in the 2-car garage and leave them there; you're just a very few blocks from Midtown Crossing, Blackstone District, Gifford park, UNMC, and the ORBT stop. In fact, Gifford Park is literally on the next block. Entertain on the spacious deck, cuddle in front of the living room fireplace or enjoy coffee or a glass of wine on the private master bedroom balcony. History and Jazz age style abound in this solid 1929 home without sacrifices to 21st-century conveniences. It's the former home of Howard Lundgren, president of Woodmen of the World, known for championing inclusion of women in the company. He was also was president of the Doorly Zoo Society, Omaha YMCA, and Children’s Hospital Board. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms (1 each of full, 3/4, and 1/2), 2-car detached garage and finished basement. The kitchen and bathrooms were remodeled and wood floors refinished in 2017. Electrical has been largely upgraded. Roof and exterior paint in 2017, new water heater in 2017, new AC and furnace in 2018. New garage door in 2018, new concrete in (driveway, back sidewalks and front steps) in 2019, deck refinished in 2019. Includes a working wood-burning fireplace and fully fenced back yard. The crown molding includes picture rails, the original staircase is constructed of quartersawn oak. There aren't many opportunities to enjoy life in a beautiful, charming home on a quiet tree-lined street - that just happens to be surrounded by the best entertainment districts Omaha has to offer. Act before it's gone.
