With its recent full-scale renovation, this open and airy 2-family home is a rare, turn-key find that has beautiful light throughout, contemporary finishes, very high ceilings and, notably, PRIVATE PARKING!
A gut renovation of the entire house in 2016 incorporated the following new additions: mechanicals (including boiler and separate high-efficiency water heaters for each unit); plumbing and electrical, heating and cooling; windows on the first and lower levels; well outfitted kitchens with ample cabinet storage and counterspace; baths with clean and classic white subway tiles and marble topped vanities; among others.
Nearly 2300 sq ft in total, it is currently set up as an owners' duplex with a fully finished walk-out lower level that was excavated to maximize ceiling height and a top-floor 2BD unit, the layout lends itself to multiple configurations – including an easy transformation to a single family (see floorplan and alternate floorplan).
The first level of the home has nearly 9.5 ft ceilings and features an entry foyer and extra spacious open living and true dining space that's large enough to also include a play or office area; modern kitchen with white cabinetry and stainless appliances; full bath with shower; oversized windows; deep storage closets; and split AC/heat units.
French doors from the dining area lead to a sunny South-facing terrace and rear yard with planting beds.
The lower level has extra tall 9.5 ft ceilings in parts; multiple fully finished, windowed recreation rooms; split AC/heat units as well as radiant heating; laundry room; full bath; closet storage; mechanical room; and compact workshop.
The sunswept top floor unit has two large skylights; an open kitchen that leads to the living/dining room; full bath; and two tranquil bedrooms with deep closets.
Ideally situated on a lovely tree-lined street amid a row of attractive barrel-front pre-war homes with decorative cornices, the neatly landscaped front yard of the property also has private parking! Nearby to the subway and express bus and minutes to vibrant greenspaces; waterfront parks and Shore Road promenade; and a wealth of local shops, markets and restaurants along 3rd Avenue.
