John Matheis House - Located at 307 Walnut St.

The John Matheis House was built in 1853 by architect August Knight for President Millard Fillmore's sister-in-law, Julia Fillmore. In 1868, a carpet dealer by the name of John Matheis bought the house, and hired the original architect to completely redesign the home and add the three story tower. After the 1920's the home was used as a boarding house. By 1980 the house was in a terrible state of disrepair when it was finally restored. The John Matheis House now is a 6 unit Condominium. Irvine Park, Forepaugh's Restaurant, and the Historic Ramsey House are all right next door.


If you have not already signed a contract with a Realtor to represent you in the purchase of your next home, you need to ask some very important questions. The Downtown marketplace is a constantly changing market.


  1.  Does your agent know how the location of a condo inside a building can make a unit worth considerably more or less in value?


  2.  Does your agent understand how to determine if the Association is in good standing financial shape?


  3.  Does your agent know of future city plans that could alter the value of the condo you are considering purchasing?


These are just some of the questions you need to ask you next agent for Downtown.  It takes more than just unlocking the door for you.  Let us show you the way!


When you are ready for an Agent with Downtown knowledge, we’re here for you.
