Original CAA house in South Addition asks $515K

Colonial revival style home was originally duplex for government employees

This home at 1239 I street was built in 1950 as part of a group of 34 houses constructed for employees of the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) who were stationed in Anchorage. They’re identical to the nearby duplexes built for the weather bureau nicknamed “Cumulus Chateaus” and the Alaska Railroad duplexes of Government Hill, so it’s likely they were built from shared blueprints from the FHA or Army Corps of Engineers.

This house has been converted to a single-family home with 2,475 SF of living space, 5 bedrooms, and 3.75 baths. The CAA duplexes were originally built with a side gable roof, enclosed porch featuring wood lap siding on the second story and tightly jointed, vertical wood siding on the first story. Twelve, double‚Äźhung, wood sash windows and a white picket fence with two driveways (no garage or carport). The listing incorrectly states the house has an attached garage/carport.

Located at the corner of 13th Avenue and I street, the 4,900 SF parcel is adjacent to New Sagaya City Market and walking distance to the CBD and Delaney Park.
