Description
Welcome to 233 East 5th Street. This fully detached home on a 40' x 100' lot with a rocking chair porch has beauty, flexibility, a private driveway with a garage, solar panels and three outdoor spaces. Your heart will sing! This legal two family is easily converted to a one family, or used as the lovely two family it currently is: options abound. This home has an owners' upper duplex with 2 bedrooms convertible to three, and a balcony; and there is a very spacious first floor one bedroom apartment with a separate living room and dining room. The entire space is easily transformed into a single family home an alternate floorplan is provided. You'll enter to find a pretty foyer with an original stained glass window. To the left is the first floor apartment. There's a large living room with two exposures, including lovely bay windows at the front of the home. Walk through to the spacious dining room the windowed kitchen, remodeled in 2007 is to the right and there is a renovated black and white full bathroom. The bedroom is at the back of the house and overlooks the backyard the bedroom spans the width of the home (22'!) and is bright and beautiful with 3 exposures and 4 windows. The owners duplex starts on the second floor: You'll find an enormous, sunny living room with fabulous bay windows and two exposures. There is a great dining room with custom built cabinetry and sliders to a large deck. The kitchen has plentiful white cabinetry and grey counters, along with stainless appliances, recently replaced. And there is a cute mint green and black retro subway tile full bath on this level. Go up the stairs and find two generous bedrooms. The backyard is huge and there is a free standing garage. The roof was replaced in 2016 and the solar panels were installed in 2017 which makes this home energy efficient. The driveway has beautiful pavers, which were installed in in 2019. The basement has high ceilings and is unfinished. It houses laundry and all the mechanicals, which are in great order. The house has ducted forced hot air heating (new furnace-2018). It's easy to add compressors for HVAC. It has been fully insulated. And the exterior of the home was freshly painted in 2020. All the hard work has been done here. Located in Kensington, at the crossroads of Windsor Terrace, it is near all. The Windsor Terrace library is up the street, and the Community Garden is around the corner. It's two short blocks to the F/G trains at Fort Hamilton Parkway, and to the Greenwood Playground and dog run. It's a short walk to Prospect Park, the Parade Grounds and Greenwood Cemetery, and there are excellent amenities on Church Ave, Fort Hamilton Parkway, and Prospect Ave. This is a wonderful opportunity to live on a bucolic block in a special, fully detached home. Come take a look you will want to make it yours! Showings start the weekend of February 27 - pls schedule your appointment to view then.
