The first floor offers a gracious living room with bay windows and coat closet; grand formal dining room with beamed ceilings; modern stainless steel kitchen with separate breakfast room and built-in bookshelves; new powder room; and mud room that leads to your sprawling backyard, perfect for entertaining large groups and quiet evenings with a good book alike. Trot upstairs to find four bedrooms (including a master with brand-new en-suite bathroom with heated floors), two full bathrooms and a corner office that's a dream come true for working from home. Gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. The light and airiness at 287 East 5th Street is on a totally different level than your average house! Downstairs, the basement has been completely remodeled, offering a second (windowed) home office, workshop, sitting area and proper laundry room. Custom upgrades over the past few years include renovation of the exterior masonry; the aforementioned new master bath and powder room on the parlor floor; and revamping of the under-stoop area and the entrance. Energy efficient solar panels allow the owner to enjoy an annual tax credit of $1,045 (reflected in the listing RET) while keeping electricity bills remarkably low. Parking, endless sun, easy proximity to Prospect Park and the Prospect Expressway; what more could you want from your home? Contact us today to arrange a private showing!
