LIsting of the Day: Sensible Coastal Living

51 Pennyfield Avenue, 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom - $399,000

This is a sensible 3 bedroom house, for a sensible price, in a sensible neighborhood. Only a block from the water and in the shadow of the Throgs Neck Bridge, this house has a big back yard and the low taxes that come with city living.

The pics show a house that has been cared for and maintained. The yard looks like it is would support a pretty decent family party and many barbecues. The interior paint job looks sleek and new. The listing blurb talks of a 'water view,' but no picture was provided.

I guess the only downside would be a bit of isolation from the rest of the Bronx and the City. This particular house is in a part of Throgs Neck that is on a skinny little peninsula near SUNY Maritime. Express buses and the car culture rule the transportation day.
