1452 Calle America - Santurce.

1920's Classic Santurce Mansion

Currently 2 Family + Casita but can be renovated as single family residence.

Three Blocks to Bellas Artes Fine Arts Center, Pavia + Doctor's Center Hospital

The last 'undiscovered' neighborhood in Santurce.  Residents love the neighborhood feeling with most homes owner-occupied.  They love their 'hidden secret' location just 3 blocks from Bellas Artes, Pavia Hospital or Doctors' Center Hospital.  The area keeps getting better - now that Walmart and Walgreens have opened at stop 18 in one direction and Ciudadela/Pueblo/Planet Fitness & Lote 23 Food Trucks in the other direction.

While most people aren't familiar with the neighborhood - this was the location of the old race track in San Juan on the blocks south of Ave. Fernandez Juncos between Calle Hipodromo (Doctor's Center Hospital) and Ultima Parada Gas Station/Ave. Avelino Vicente (Pavia Hospital).  When they moved the race track from Santurce to Hato Rey in the 1920's, the old race track was divided into building lots and sample homes were built to show customers various options for their future homes.  You'll see that this house and several others in the neighborhood have a 'horseshoe' emblem in the front peak of the house - these were the model homes.  

This house was one of the original model homes so the lot size is larger than most in the area and the style is typical 'between the wars' elegance with terrazo floors, high 10 foot ceilings on both levels and some original details.

Ground floor apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, living room, dining room and kitchen.  Back courtyard is 15' x 20' and ready to be tiled as patio with 'cantina' kitchen/BBQ area.

Ground floor 'casita' has 1 bedroom, small living room, bathroom - could be combined with first floor.

Second floor apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen plus large front balcony looking toward Minillas Center, Bellas Artes and Iglesia Sagrado Corazon. A bridge has been created to include a covered terrace above the casita.

Approximately 1,000 square foot roof had great potential for penthouse or location for solar panels, water tanks, etc. (currently no access - would have to create stairs to roof).
