The Slatterly Park Neighborhood is a wonderful downtown Rochester area, rich with diversity and bustling with activity. The area is named after a community park and hosts a variety of activities for all ages and lifestyles. I like older homes so Slattery is a favorite area of mine as most homes were built in the 1920-1960 decades.
The Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association north boundary is 4th St SE (think Farmer’s Market and Roscoe’s BBQ area) and the south boundary is 12th St SE/Highway 14 (think Dairy Queen, Lincoln K-8 Choice Elementary School area). The east boundary is 15th Ave SE (by Cub Foods and Eagles Club) and the west boundary is 3rd Ave SE/Broadway (Kwik Trip, K-Mart and Domino’s Pizza).
Homes built in the Slatterly area were usually constructed in the 1920’s to 1960’s though I once viewed an 1890 built home and there are a few along Bear Creek that were probably built in the 70’s. You won’t find cookie cutter homes (same house over and over) here as each home was likely custom built. The homes probably average 1500-1800 square feet but you’ll also find some grand American Four Square style houses.
There were 96 homes sold in Slatterly Park between February 15, 2016-February 15, 2017. Prices ranged from $40,000 to $168,500 with an average Days on Market (DOM) of 33 days and an average sales price of $121,955. The previous year (Feb 2015-Feb.2016), Slatterly had 70 homes sell ranging in price from $19,900-$163,000, 43 DOM and average sale price of $110,161.
There are apartments scattered in the area as well as older homes converted into duplex and triplex living. Most of the garages will be detached style simply because a 1920 home builder didn’t see the need for a garage! These homes are rich with heritage and you’ll find beautiful natural wood, brick driveways, gorgeous custom doors with stone accented archways, probably hardwood floors and all the other features of yesteryear.
Riverside Central Elementary School (grades K-5)neighborhood association is vibrant and healthy. The mission of the neighborhood association is to “strengthen ties between neighbors, curtail crime, and beautify the properties in an overall effort to maintain and enhance property values.” The association organized the Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan with a goal of revitalizing the area. They have neighborhood movie nights, host the Art on the Avenue annual festival, neighborhood picnics, community garden plots and lots of other fun things to get neighbors outside and chatting.
