This former fire station turned one-bedroom home on the East Side of St. Paul is now on the market.

Why we love it: Built in 1918, the historic property has the unique charm of a fire station with the convenience of modern amenities — though the firepole has been removed, real estate agent Garth Dahl confirmed to Axios.

Layout: The station's 1,800-square-foot upper level has been converted into a one-bedroom, two-bathroom home.

  • The lower level is largely unfinished, but can be turned into additional housing or used for a business — the property is zoned residential and commercial.

Interior features: Open floor plan, heated tile floors, stainless steel appliances, large kitchen island, stone countertops, whirlpool tub, and new windows.

Exterior features: Large raised deck, flagpole, and a garage with enough room for at least six vehicles...or a few fire trucks.

Take a look around...
