This 3-bedroom home in the Village offers one convenience that’s hard to find in this neighborhood – an attached 1 car garage. Add in a gut renovation in 2015 and you’ll understand why this home is a rarity.

Walking in, you’ll immediately notice the brightness provided by a large bay window. Hand-scraped hardwood floors work to add warmth to the space while wide moldings and recessed lights throughout are added bonuses.

The living room features a sliding barn door allowing a portion of the space to be closed off and acts as both an office and guest room. A custom-designed Italian Murphy bed folds seamlessly into the wall and converts into a functioning desk within seconds. The full-size closet is the icing on the cake.

It’s evident that the well-thought-out kitchen is intended to be used. Outfitted with GE Profile Stainless Steel appliances, Quartz countertops, custom shaker cabinetry, and an ornate tile backsplash, the space is candy for the eyes. A large island with cozy seating for two and a butcher block top affords the chef extra room for food preparation. Attached to the kitchen is a dining room that comfortably seats six.

Although currently used as a one-family, the current homeowners have taken the extra steps to leave utilities, plumbing and electrical systems in place, allowing for an easy and less expensive conversion back to a two-family property.

An extensive roof top deck provides an idyllic backdrop for entertaining or romantic meals at sunset.
