A five-bedroom, three-bath gem of a Painted Lady recently hit the market in the Concordia neighborhood and it's a real looker.

The 3,420-square-foot house at 953 N. 33rd St. was built in 1895 for lawyer Fred S. Hunt of LaBoule & Hunt. It's listed for $359,000 and there is currently a contingent offer.


The house was designed by architect Frank J. Voith and built by contractor R.J. Danielson.

It's a Dutch Colonial Revival design with a trio of interesting dormers, two bay windows on the first floor and a gorgeous porch. The elaborate paint job highlights the Voith's detailed woodwork.

The Hunt family lived in the house until around the mid-1920s. This ad was published in 1926. ad




It was occupied later that decade by Mrs. Nettie Utz, who was active in the Gen. Pershing chapter of the American War Mothers and meetings of that group were often held there.


Voith, who designed a number of area houses, partnered for a time with architect Cornelius Leenhouts. Together, they did residential work, too, but among their collaborations was also the expansion and renovation of Bethlehem Lutheran Church.


Here's what the listing says about the home today:


"Tastefully updated and impeccably maintained ... Spectacular updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, marble counter, breakfast island, all new cabinetry and pass-through butler's pantry. Formal front parlor with gas fireplace, bench seating, bay window. Beautiful living room, dining room with it's own natural fireplace, and sun room overlooking private fenced-in backyard.






Second floor has four bedrooms, one full bath and laundry room. Third floor has full bath, fifth bedroom with two cedar closets,and billiard/game room. Basement adds a family/TV room, craft/work room, workout room and walkout access to backyard."


There's also a 2.5-car garage, a back patio and a deck, plus the house is wired for the 21st century with RING, Nest, Alexa and Bluetooth Showerhead Speakers.
