Step inside this converted fire station home

Heidi Glaus takes you inside for a house tour. The home has actually been featured on House Hunters twice.

Across from Cole School, in midtown, in what used to be Fire Station 28 is now a one-of-a-kind home.  A place Aaron Hawes and his wife bought about four years ago.
 
"Literally sitting on my couch yelled at my wife oh my god there's a fire house for sale," he explains.
 
But back then it didn't look quite like this.  They added a wood burning fireplace.
 
"It's called a stoof, it's imported actually from Europe," he points out.
 
They also added several windows and created a room inside a room in what was the garage and is now the photography studio.
 
It is a four bedroom, two and a half bath house, but that bathroom number is a bit deceiving.
 
"Two normal bathroom stalls, two shower stalls, it's jus that quintessential communal bathroom feeling."
 
The captain, however, would have had his own bathroom.
 
"So this is what would have been that captain's suite."
 
And it's in here where you'll find the only fire pole still standing.
 
"Everyone wants to go down it until you stand and look down," Hawes says.
 
It is a pretty cool place inside and out.
 
"Our garage that we did in back is in ipe, which is a Brazilian hardwood. It's like a natural composite most people don't even know what it is, but I've been in love with that wood forever."
 
They even gave extra thought to the fence.
 
"So the fence is actually done in Cor-ten steel.  It's an architectural steel.  It actually gets harder as it rusts."
 
It is the couple's dream home.  A spot they never planned on leaving until she was relocated which means it's now on the market and is unlike anything Ted Disabato has ever sold.
 
"I've never had something that had this much punch and this much uniqueness," Disabato says.
 
So sound the alarm 3934 Enright Avenue probably won't be on the market very long.
 
The house is listed at $425,000.  There's an open house Sunday from 1 to 3.  If you're seriously interested you can go to TdD-re.com to contact Ted.
