Opportunity abounds at this tri-level 3BR+/3BA legal two-family townhome with expansive backyard, less than 1 mile to Prospect Park.
Brightened by northern and southern exposures, the virtually staged home boasts charming pre-war details, original exposed brick and woodwork throughout, ample storage and a sun-kissed open floor plan.
Enter through the owner’s unit at the parlor level where you are welcomed by a charming foyer and brick-clad living room with cozy fireplace. For optimal entertaining, the open kitchen could be upgraded and expanded into the dining area or rear bedroom, or the bedroom could be repurposed as a formal dining room, family room or home office. Sliding glass doors off the kitchen lead to a patio overlooking the large, private garden with tasteful pavers flanked by mature plants. The level is completed by a bathroom.
Access the lower level via backyard, front yard entrance or foyer stairs, where you will find a spacious family room, bedroom and bathroom, and a large storage area toward the rear.
Ascend to the upper level where a generous living room with tranquil treetop views and brick fireplace merge seamlessly with the full kitchen. Continue to the back bedroom and windowed bathroom, ideal for hosting a tenant or guests.
The home has been re-sided, repainted, and has an updated roof and gutters. A little TLC and a design eye can modernize and transform the space into a forever home that accommodates additional bedrooms, and a home office or gym. Or the future owner could renovate and rent out the upper level.
Tucked away on a picturesque tree-lined South Slope block, 1/3 mile to Green-Wood Cemetery, less than 1 mile to Prospect Park, near Slope Park Playground, South Slope Dog Run, and the Butterfly Gardens, and straddled by the plentiful shopping, dining and service options lining 4th and 5th Avenues. Transportation options include the D/N/R/W at Prospect Ave, the F/G at Prospect Park, the B63 at 5th Ave, B37 at 3rd Ave or Citi Bike at 6th Ave.
From its idyllic location to its bountiful potential, this unique home invites imagination, ingenuity and an owner who can see the big picture.
