For Sale: 1888 Firehouse Turned Private Home

It was constructed in 1888 as Covington Firehouse #4 and now 126 years later is on the real estate market.

827 Main Street will soon be listed as a multi-family with two apartments and the possibility of renovation to a single family home.

The property was originally placed for sale in November of last year by its current owner with an asking price of $260,000. It is now listed with Huff real estate agent Rebecca Weber.

For the first time we get a look inside at this unique property.

The Covington Fire Department removed Company 4 from service in 1983. (A previous version of this story said 1975, but a Covington firefighter offered a correction.)

Situated at the corner of Main & Emma Streets in Mainstrasse Village, there are two separate living spaces with a door between them.

The main living area has a loft bedroom, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, bath, dining area with skylight, and a second room that can be used as an office or bedroom.

The second residence is a studio painted in Lotus racing colors with its own living area, kitchen, bedroom area, and two skylights.

There are 14-foot ceilings, exposed brick, refinished original wood floors, an outdoor deck, and a fire pole.

The property is zoned commercial and there are separate utilities for each space.

The first floor garage has a finished floor, workshop area, laundry, bathroom, and holds up to eight cars.
