Welcome to Edgecombe Avenue, a Gorgeous Tree-Lined Residential Block with Charming Townhouses (that rarely come to market) running the expanse of both sides. 189 Edgecombe offers a Unique Opportunity to own a Turn-Key, Newly Renovated 2-Family Brick Townhouse with an Owners Triplex Home, and an Investment Apartment on the Garden Level (with an excellent rental history that can carry a nice portion of your expenses).
Boasting 9 Rooms, and an estimated 3,336 sq feet (not including the cellar level), the house is comprised of 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, a Rear Deck/Dining Patio, and an Open Sun-Flooded Backyard. Many Pre-War Details remain intact in the Interior Woodwork, Oversized Doors and Casings, and Ornate Fireplace Mantles with exquisite cast iron inlay. The thoughtful renovation has retained much of the Old World Charm, while integrating many modern touches and amenities one seeks in a luxury townhouse lifestyle: Split System Air Conditioning and Heating throughout, new windows, 2 Washer & Dryers (one in Owners Residence and another in the Garden Level Apartment), Restored Original Millwork, new lighting (custom wired and recessed), and exquisitely appointed kitchen/bathrooms.
Enter at the Parlor Level where your front stoop leads through a double vestibule foyer with elegant original details. Arrive into an Open Living/Entertaining Expanse centered around the first of 4 decorative Fireplaces. Powder Room, Dining Area, and State-of the-Art Open Eat-In Kitchen with Calcutta Marble Countertops, Richfield Cabinets, High End Stainless Steel Appliances, a Vented Range Hood, Wine Fridge and Breakfast Bar Island. The kitchen extends through Double Sliding Glass Doors to your Outdoor Al Fresca Dining Patio overlooking the Backyard Garden below.
The 3rd & 4th floors are each comprised of 2 large bedrooms (Each with their own full bathroom): The 3rd floor features Bay Windows in the front bedroom, enjoying panoramic views of the block and a luxurious whirlpool soaking tub. Hall bathroom has ample space adjacent to an oversized stackable washer/dryer and laundry area. The 4th floor offers similarly comfortable layout, with sun-drenched natural light streaming in from two overhead skylights that accentuate the details of the attractive staircase corridor.
The garden level apartment has its own separate entrance below the front stoop and is currently living as a one bedroom floor-through rental unit with its own laundry and sliding glass doors to the backyard.
