Historic home lovers can get their kicks this Sunday, July 9th, when three beautiful Compton Heights homes will be hosting open houses (with tasty treats) from 1-3pm. Each home is for sale, ranging in list price from $399,000 – $519,000.
Compton Heights is about 250 acres in the center of the city and located just east of Grand Avenue and a block south of Reservoir Park. It is one of the earliest planned residential developments of the American 19th century and the entire neighborhood is a local historic district. It is valued for its proximity to so many great parks, restaurants, amenities, and access to downtown – not to mention its many stunning homes. The Compton Heights Neighborhood Association website is a great resource for neighborhood history buffs.
So here is the map and some more information on 2914 Allen, 2924 Allen, and 3010 Geyer. We hope to see you this Sunday.
