Built in 1910, this beautiful and sunny four-story brownstone has intentionally been allowed to retain many of its original architectural details and charm from tin ceilings, exposed brick walls and original wood planked floors, to its numerous original built-ins. It boasts nine rooms and four bathrooms and there are 7 original marble fireplaces in total, one of which, on the top floor, is open for cozy fires.
The Garden Level features two spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms, both recently renovated (one en suite). A door from the rear bedroom leads directly to your backyard oasis, offering an urban sanctuary harboring its own organic vegetable garden, abundant perennial foliage and a watertight handmade fort made from salvaged material large enough for a queen mattress, a writer's rustic retreat, or a teenager's dream hangout.
The Parlor Level, with it's high ceilings, features an open living floor plan with a very large eat in kitchen and direct access to the deck: perfect for entertaining. The kitchen then opens upon the cozy living room and is connected to the very large private front Parlor room via an antique door, double insulated walls for privacy, and two wall transoms, one of which is antique stained glass, that allows the southern light to extend into the living room and kitchen. The lot size is 19ft. x 100 ft.
There is a new washer and dryer in the unfinished basement.
The third and fourth floor duplex, currently occupied by tenants, features windows in every room, including the two full bathrooms (recently upgraded) and has four additional rooms, three of which presently used as bedrooms. The fourth room is an open kitchen/living room space with a working brick fireplace. There is an oversized laundry room on the third floor, and an enormous amount of original built-ins and closets throughout. There are currently tenants in place through April 30, 2019.
The entire sewer/water main was replaced a little over a year ago, and in the past 15 years, the current owner has replaced the roof, redone the facade, upgraded the electric, and replaced the boiler and hot water heater.
Currently configured as a legal two-family dwelling with two duplexes, this residence can be converted back to a single family home, or continue as a turn-key opportunity for rental income retaining the duplexes or redesigning as an upper triplex with a high income garden level rental. The choices are endless!
