Rarely Available Astoria Bow Front Townhouse Built in 1901 with Detached 2 Car Garage!
This lovingly maintained bow front brick home has been in the same family for several generations. Rarely available, this oversized 22 ft wide original two family built in 1901, has an additional 1600 Sq Ft garden which is hidden from the street. On its south side, this sunny home overlooks the private yard featuring mature plantings and a grass lawn. This home captures the best of both worlds by being located on a quiet residential block and yet just three blocks from N and W Trains at Ditmars Blvd.
Original detail coupled with modern amenities, this home is ready to move into and occupy as a two family with a rental unit, or could be turned into a spectacular, one of kind private home. The entry way features the original banister. From the entry hallway you can access the owners unit on the first floor which features high ceilings and five rooms including an updated kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, split AC units, a full bath and an exit to a mud room in the rear.
Top floor contains a six room, three bedroom unit with sunny eastern, southern and western exposures plus a north facing windowed bath overlooking a small courtyard next door. Private balcony in rear overlooks the garden. This spacious home consists of 2200 Sq Ft on the first and second floors combined, and a full 1100 Sq Ft garden level. The walk-in level boasts a wine cellar, has been fully waterproofed throughout and contains a circa 1901 original bath with a clawfoot tub and pedestal sink. In addition, the walk-in features a full kitchen, additional family room, formal dining area, work room, laundry room and exit to the garden. As a note, both the bath and kitchen appear on the CO. The property includes Andersen windows, a well maintained roof, recently pointed bricks and updated stucco on the side wall amongst other updates. The newly renovated garden level includes extensive water proofing, updated electric throughout and three zone hot water heat.
