Listing of the Day: Van Cortlandt Village Fixer-Upper

3326 Giles Place - 5 bedrooms (?), 1.5 bathrooms - $350K

This semi-detached single family is priced right, but must need significant renovation. There are no interior pics and the listing indicates that it "needs work." The place does have a one-car garage, which helps. The listing also gives a range of bedrooms (5-6); I wonder how raw this space is?

The hood is a nice family-oriented nabe. You'd be close to Ft. Independence Park and Van Cortlandt Park, and be in walking distance to the Bronx Ale House (always a good thing).

Shopping is decent with the Target complex down in Marble Hill; Garden Gourmet is reasonably close; and you'd be proximate enough to Riverdale to poach some of the hill-dwellers' amenities.

Transportation is good with the 1-train at both 238th and 231st streets (you'd be kind of equidistant) and Broadway. For east side access you'd have a little further walk (but not crazy) to the Mosholu Parkway 4 train stop.

I can see the reality show now:
Snooki moves in and tries to fix up the house!

If Snooki has her own HGTV show in the BX -- I am so getting cable!

I want to see the 'Real Housewives of the Bronx.'. That would be some shit. Somebody get Andy Cohen on the horn and pitch this thing...
