Listing of the Day: Kingsbridge House

3442 Corlear Avenue, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms - $525,000

This is a one family house in Kingsbridge, which is roughly on the outskirts of Riverdale. The house has a car-porty-garagey type thing, which is a real bonus for anyone who has ever had to supplicate themselves to the street parking gods of the Bronx.

The price has been chopped from a $595K listing price in January. The taxes, while not listed, have to be relatively low - at least in comparison to Long Island, New Jersey and Westchester. I'd certainly pull up that teal carpet, but that is a cosmetic and easy type of upgrade. The rest of the house looks pretty good. And how can you not like a little front porch action?

This house and hood are in walking distance to Van Cortlandt Park (most under-rated park in the City) and also to the much smaller, but nice, Ewen Park. You'd be close to Riverdale for some foodie options and also still be close to the Target in Marble Hill for shopping. Manhattan College is close by for lectures and some MAAC hoops (which can be pretty fun when the Jaspers are good). The transportation would be easy with the 1 train at 238th and Broadway.
