Listing of the Day: Castle in Bedford Park

308 E. 201st Street, 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms - $599K

This is a very well maintained three family house in the heart of Bedford Park. The home features 2 bedrooms, over 2 bedrooms, with a 1 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor. The building has always been one of the stunners on 201st street.

A huge bonus to this house in a veritable parking lot in the back with room for 10 cars! Major rental income from those spots in the parking deficient environs of Bedford Park. The missus and I always marvel at the beautiful roses that are seasonally present in the front garden.

You'd be down the block from the Botanical Garden Metro North station and also the station's eponymous verdant living museum. Subway access abounds with the D/B and 4 trains on Bedford Park Boulevard at the Concourse and Jerome Avenue respectively. Some basic shopping is found on Bedford Park Boulevard (pizza, diner, bar, dry cleaners, hard ware, big-ish bodegas, pharmacies, etc.). Bigger shopping can be done at the Target complex in Marble Hill or Fordham Road. For the roadsters out there Westchester offers Stew Leonard's and Costco off the Deegan, and a new Fairway just north of the Bronx border on Boston Road in Pelham.
