Windows on two exposures bring in natural light and pendants highlight the sink and counters. There's a breakfast bar for dining and access to the deep rear garden. A pocket door at the kitchen's entrance opens to a convenient first floor powder room. The upper level hosts three bedrooms (two good sized, one smaller and perhaps perfect as an office or nursery ) and a beautiful bath with a seated two-person walk-in shower.

It has central air conditioning, economical gas heat, an attic and a basement. From the welcoming front porch to the second floor private one, this is one charming, comfortable home! It's been well maintained, with records, plans, invoices and warranty information available for review. All this, priced for today's market in a lively city with a great sense of community!. All this, priced for today's market in a lively city with a great sense of community! Enjoy excellent city services, shops, museums, eateries, Battery Park and a new pier!
