For the first time in over 30 years a Kingsbridge Heights gem is now available. Come see this classic 5-bedroom home and see the very best that Van Cortlandt Village has to offer. Though legally able to house 2-units, this house has been tastefully maintained as a 1-unit layout for generations. Anchoring the Van Cortlandt Park Historic District the home holds as much history as the neighborhood it sits in. The quality updates highlight the nearly century old details but without sacrificing any modern comforts. This house has everything today's buyer is looking for including split unit air conditioning, updated appliances in the pass-through kitchen, 1 car garage and 2 car driveway, wrap around gardens, and a full backyard with a dining area perfect for grilling. The entry with closet will welcome you home at the end of the day. Here take notice of the vintage hardwood floors that have been beautifully maintained throughout the home. The large dining room overlooks the spacious and green garden under the tall breezy trees of Orloff Avenue. Through an office with double exposure and past a full bathroom the spacious pass-through kitchen with full pantry, stainless steel appliances, and a gorgeous bay window await your next culinary adventure. The grand living room is perfect for both entertaining as well as curling up by the wood burning fireplace and catching up on a good book. Eastern and western light pours in all day and the split A/C system helps keep the temperature perfect year round. But there is more. Past the living room is a bonus sitting room with triple exposure including a massive picture window facing south to get incredible light all day. Conceived as a library the current owners refer to this as 'The Sun Room.' It overlooks the lower garden and is not something you're likely to find in another home in The Bronx this year. The giant picture window encourages you to spend an afternoon in this urban sanctuary watching the world walk by your lower garden with the sun gleaming over the hedges. Upstairs sit 4 bedrooms. 3 of them have double exposure with great air flow. 2 of them have walk-in closets. All are large enough for Queen if not King size beds. The tiled and windowed bathroom includes custom hampers and a massive rear vanity opposite the double sinks. The tub features an opening skylight window with northern exposure. The attic above does have flooring for all the extra storage you could ever need. Below the main floor is a large full sized dry basement with two large rooms. The first is a carpeted and would make a great game room or media space. The second room contains the mechanicals as well as the washer/dryer and a sink. The house just had its roof replaced in 2021. Just 3 Blocks from the 1 train at 238th Street and 2 blocks to the Express BxM3 this neighborhood has so much to offer. Van Cortlandt and Fort Independence Parks are chock full of green space and activities including trails, golf courses, ball fields, numerous playgrounds and more. This isn't an accident as Van Cortlandt Village is one of the few streetscapes in the entire city that retains its original layout as put down by Frederick Law Olmstead who designed Central and Prospect Parks. The curvy hills and leafy blocks among the step-streets retain a charm that is rare anywhere in the city today, let alone in The Bronx. But it's not all bike trails and dog runs... The Bronx Ale House and Kingsbridge Social Club are just around the corner. One of the newer openings is local favorite Bronx Public with great food and a fantastic bar. The newly built Riverdale Crossing off 238th St. brings a BJ's to your fingertips. The brand new 2 story rebuild of the Van Cortlandt NYPL recently opened in 2019 with great fanfare. And of course, the NYC essentials: S&S Cheesecake and Lloyd's Carrot Cake bakeries will literally swell you up with Bronx Pride. Houses like this do not come to market even once a decade, come take a look while you still can.
