Stepping into this Swallows condominium will take you back in time. Built in 1909, the left half of this two condo Victorian style building has been in the Swallows family for generations, but is now available for sale. The best location in Salida, right across from Alpine Park's majestic lions, has views of town and the park from the front balcony and views of the mountains from the back balcony. The back lot has room to build a garage. Inside the home the main level has living room, dining room, kitchen with walk in pantry, and laundry that leads to the back porch, while upstairs three bedrooms with original trim work and doors, and a bath with the original claw foot tub feel open bright and airy because of the high cielings and huge windows. The rooms are large with large closets. The charm of this beautiful historic home rests in the details, from knobs to hinges, from the staircase railing to the formal dining area fireplace. A party wall shares utilities with the other half of the building. There is no better way to enjoy Salida than right from this corner lot condo that holds a piece of Salida history. Zoning for the condo is C-2. Must be a Chaffee County resident to obtain a Salida STR license. Because of the C2 zoning this condo is short term rentable all 365 days of the year.
