Beautiful, sunny and spacious semi-attached two family brick home, (easily turned into a one family home) with it's garage transformed into a fabulous artist studio is now available on a bucolic Kensington block, right on the border of Windsor Terrace. Offering a total of 13 rooms, with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, this is a treasure.
The flexibility of this home is amazing, as well as what it offers.
Currently used as a two family - the set-up now consists of a beautifully renovated owner's duplex (2.5 beds, 2 baths plus backyard, studio and finished basement) and a top floor three bedroom rental apartment with balcony.
The owners duplex is simply fabulous. With an open layout, you enter a large living room with custom designed built-ins. There is a fabulous sunroom at the front of the house. And, it has a gorgeous and huge newly renovated windowed eat-in-kitchen with plentiful cabinetry, stainless appliances, subway tiling, and silestone quartz counters and a space that is perfect for entertaining in beauty. This level continues with 2.5 bedrooms and one bath. Walk downstairs to the large finished basement that has two recreation rooms (one could be used as an extra bedroom for visitors), a workroom and a mechanical/storage room. There is a large backyard which is perfect for relaxing and lounging and a separate artist studio!
The house has a shared driveway. It's garage was converted into an artist's studio, with french doors and windows, to provide abundant natural light. The studio can be used in many different ways-it's your choice. Or if you desire, turn it back into a garage and have your own private parking space.
The top floor has 3 bedrooms, a large living room and a kitchen, with beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The master bedroom has a large balcony that overlooks the beauty that is East 4th St.
To turn this home into a one family requires very little work - remove a door and a half wall, and either remove the kitchen from the second floor or turn that into a laundry room, and you have a beautiful one family home with 4-5 bedrooms, a family room on the second floor and two offices/dens, plus the extra space in the basement, the yard and the studio!
The entire house has been well-maintained and has many upgrades throughout.
This is a great opportunity to purchase a spacious two family home or to have a huge one family home which is hard to find in the Windsor/Kensington neighborhoods. The choice is yours.
