  • Historic 3-story, 1906 building
  • Currently a 3-unit multi-family investment
  • Main building plus 4-car garage on 1.1 acres
  • Optional 0.6 acre buildable single family lot


Rare opportunity to own one of Geneva’s most unique historic properties, located just west of downtown. Originally a single-family home, this vintage 3-story, 5,500+ sf, 1906 building has for many years been a three-unit multi-family investment property. A virtual video tour is available. The main building, plus 4-car detached garage, currently sits on a 1.7 acre lot with mature trees that screen it from State St.

The asking price of $570,000 is for the buildings on 1.1 acres. The optional 0.6 acre lot east of the house is priced at $230,000, for a combined price of $800,000.

The current R1 zoning would allow for the structure to be converted back to a single-family residence or remain a three-flat. In addition, the zoning would also allow for a single-family home to be built on the optional lot.
Current rents total $4,500/mo. Leases are short-term. 2019 taxes were $14,851.

The individual apartments feature:
Main floor – Features hardwood floors and dramatic vintage woodwork. Two bedrooms, combined living & dining rooms with fireplace, 2 baths, kitchen with eating area, laundry room, large wrap-around screened porch.
2nd floor – Three bedrooms, living room with sitting area with large bay windows, 2 baths, kitchen with eating area, laundry room, and outdoor deck.

What are Real Estate Incentives?

Real Estate incentives range widely and have been overlooked by the Commercial Multiple Listing Services (MLS) for decades. Real estate incentives is a generic term used to group any number of programs, such as tax incentives, that are designated by an agency for a geographic area."

Why are Real Estate Incentives Important and to Whom?

"Incentives" are vital today and in the future because:

  • U.S. Public: Many incentives focus on job creation and Affordable Housing
  • Investors and Commercial Developers use incentives to reduce financial risk, obtain gap financing, etc. Investors and developers look for property listings with incentives available.
  • Commercial Real Estate Brokers, in mass, unfortunately do not know about incentives tied to their listings
  • Entire Supply Chain of Real Estate Development such as small and large companies who will provide goods and services to new and revitalized properties.
