Historic Spokane Property Comes to Market
Nineteenth century mining magnate Patsy Clark's mansion has been a bed and breakfast, restaurant, event space and law office.
"This is a truly unique, architecturally significant property that has been lovingly and diligently preserved by its current owners," said Sharapata. "The opportunity to own a property like the Clark Mansion does not come along often and we expect this offering to appeal to a wide range of buyers because of its excellent condition, location, historical significance and the potential to add value," he added.
The property, located at 2208 W 2nd Avenue, next to downtown Spokane, includes the 11,422 square foot main house; an adjacent 4,691 square foot carriage house, now used for storage but with the potential for conversion to creative office space or residences; and a similarly sized two-story duplex, originally built in 1889 as an in-law unit and converted into two rental units. In the past, the property has been used as a home, a bed and breakfast, a restaurant and, most recently as event space and a law office. Those uses are all potentially possible, as is additional residential, art or historic gallery space, creative office or nonprofit use.
"Patsy Clark built an architectural masterpiece to stand for the ages, one that's been deeply embedded in the fabric of the northwest for decades. At least two Presidents (Theodore Roosevelt and George HW Bush) have visited, along with U.S. Senators, members of Congress, and dignitaries, as well as generations of residents of Spokane. We have decided to begin the process of passing the mantle now, because this building deserves only the most dedicated and thoughtful owners," said co-owner John Allison.
