Listing of the Day: 5,000 Square Feet of Restored Beauty

W. 195th Street at Webb Avenue, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths - $645,000

This is a property I always drool over when I pass it on my way to Target/Planet Fitness, so when I recently saw the For Sale sign go up, I just had to look it up on the interweb and profile it.

This five bedroom house is located on a whopping 5,000 square foot corner lot. Aside from having a backyard and a garden, this puppy boasts not one but TWO 2 car garages. And hey, if you're in a position to buy a property at this price point, you just may have enough vehicles to fill those garage spots. If not, the rental income for the spots would be some nice bonus money.

Now onto the actual abode...The pictures really say it all with this place. It appears that whoever owns this house has completely restored the property to its original glory. The home features many original details from the 20s and 30s, but also offers upgraded electric, cable and internet wiring. There are three terraces, a pantry, and a solarium. It also appears that some sort of lecture room has been either restored or added to the house - a quirky feature that would be great if you're crazy enough to home-school all those kids filling your five bedrooms.

You'd be able to take the BxM3 express bus into Manhattan from Kingsbridge Road/Sedgwick Avenue, or you could hoof it to the Kingsbridge Road 4 train station. You'd also be within walking distance of the Marble Hill Target, Marshall's, Starbucks, and Planet Fitness.

So, all in all, if we ever come into $645,000, we'd love to snap a place like this up.

What a strange picture that last one is. It has theatre-style seating? Hrm.
Oooh, maybe they'll have an Open House.
