Listing of the Day: Fancy Fedders in Kingsbridge Heights

2792 Sedgwick Avenue, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms - $240,000

This building caught the eye of the missus as she was biking to the gym in Marble Hill a while back, but this is the first time I've come across a listing in the building.

This particular unit is not a huge 2 bedroom at 774 square feet, but you do get some bang for your real estate buck here. There are 2 bathrooms (very uncommon in the BoogieDown's apartment stock), 2 balconies, a storage unit in the basement, a washer/dryer in the unit itself, and what seems to be a parking garage/lot on-site (but I'm sure it's wait listed or the listing agent would have pimped the availability pretty hard).

The balconies are a very nice amenity, and the little patches of green out front (even though rather small) help to make the building pop with domesticity. A lot of newish Fedders construction can look like something out of occupied Warsaw circa 1955 (apologies to all industrial Soviet architecture lovers out there), but this manages to break the mold a bit. $240K might be a little high in this market, but this seems to be a quality unit tucked away in a little nook of Kingsbridge Heights.

You'd be in walking or biking distance to the Target, Planet Fitness, Starbucks, Marshalls, etc. down in Marble Hill. There is some shopping on Kingsbridge Road. You'd be pretty close to Lehman College as well for cultural/educational offerings. The Kingsbridge Armory (with whatever ends up occupying the space) would also be in walking distance.

Transportation would be east to the 4 train at Kingsbridge Road and Jerome Avenue or head west to the 1 train at 225th Street and Broadway.

One last thing popped out to the the ole BD as he inspected the pics accompanying the listing. If you look closely at the pics that feature the television it appears to be a cardboard dummy TV. The best shot is in pic #9 after the jump. What's your vote? Methinks it's a staging prop, but sometimes scouring the interweb for LODs fries my brain and eyes a bit. Please let me know your vote in the comments.
