PHOENIX — A building that began its life as a train station in a northern Arizona town and is now a home in Phoenix has been listed for $1 million.

The home near State Route 51 and Northern Avenue features three bedrooms and three bathrooms in about 2,600 square feet.

It also sits on a lot that is bigger than one acre.

The train depot was built in Mayer in 1898. In 1963, architect Fred Guirey had it loaded on a truck and moved it to its current location.

The original building may be nearly 120 years old, but that doesn’t mean it’s dated. The fully updated house has electronics integrated throughout so audio, video and internet are readily available.

The home has terrazzo floors in the master bedroom and bathroom and limestone flooring in the kitchen, family and dining rooms.

Keep an eye out, as some of the depot’s original fir hardwood was also left in place.

The home also has concrete countertops and a chapel ceiling in the master bedroom.

If sitting on a large porch waiting for the midnight train going anywhere is more your speed, the house also has a massive patio area with views of the Valley.

If the home looks familiar, you may have seen it on HGTV. It was featured in an episode of “You Live in What?” that detailed how the former depot was moved 75 miles to Phoenix.
