Artistic Avenues home owned by the artist Jimmie Williams

Offered at $329,900

Originally built by a contractor in 1888 and later sold to a U of U professor as a rental. In 1925 it was sold to Joseph Westwood-an active Democrat & Legislative chair for 60 yrs. He had attended the U of U where he played on the baseball team. The home is now owned by the artist Jimmie Williams who has used the actual home as a canvas and made it a home & a piece of art. It is a one story cottage with a front porch as wide as the home with decorative & supporting wooden balustrades & square tapered columns. There is a small basement that he has used as a studio & a bedroom over the years. There is an accessory unit which is also a studio/workshop with power, water and 2" sewer line and 225 sq. ft with a greenhouse as part of it. The front & rear yards are a stunning example of what a Utah Gardner can do with native plants & perennials to invite bees + butterflies. It's a small home that may have never been painted inside & the artist laughingly calls it "Late Pompei" style. His art is on the floors, doors, ceilings & mounted in the backyard. Not all of the art goes with the house but is negotiable.
