130-Year-Old Spokane Mansion Goes On Market
The 130-year-old Patsy Clark Mansion in Spokane has been put on the market. The 11,422 SF building is currently home to law firm Eymann Allison Hunter Jones. The firm has owned the building since 2002.
The three-and-a-half-story mansion is a well-known Spokane icon. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building contains many of its original furnishings, antiques and art.
The mansion was built by Patrick “Patsy” Clark, who emigrated from Ireland in 1872 to learn the mining business. He opened the Poor Man Mine in the Coeur d’Alene area in 1887 and had made his fortune by 1889. He then commissioned Kirtland Cutter to design the mansion. Cutter also designed Seattle’s Rainier Club.
The property is at 2208 West Second Ave. in Spokane. In addition to the main building, there is an adjacent 4,691 SF carriage house that could be converted into offices or residences. The property also includes a two-story duplex built in 1889 that has been converted into two rental units.
JLL’s Michael Sharapata is representing the seller.
“This is a truly unique, architecturally significant property that has been lovingly and diligently preserved by its current owners,” Sharapata said. “The opportunity to own a property like the Clark Mansion does not come along often and we expect this offering to appeal to a wide range of buyers because of its excellent condition, location, historical significance and the potential to add value.”
In the past, the mansion has been used as a bed-and-breakfast, a restaurant and event space. There is no set price for the listing.
