Property Description

Looking for an investment property but don’t want to invest a lot of time? Are you ready to own your own home but could use help paying the mortgage by having a tenant? Either way, this fully renovated duplex is the perfect package, ready to go and wrapped up with a bow–or, more accurately, this developer’s signature green door. Totally renovated with Euro-inspired design, high-efficiency mechanicals and appliances, custom murals and a sleek contemporary style, this property is the definition of turnkey. Both units were rehabbed with care, with better-than-builder-grade finishes like space-saving sliding barn doors on the bathrooms, sleek flat-front cabinets mixed with stylish stainless steel, funky Edison bulb light fixtures and LG washer/dryer combo units. Unit 1 (currently tenant-occupied) is a spacious bilevel with the kitchen and full bath on the main level along with a spacious and sunny bedroom with exclusive access to the backyard. There are two bedrooms on the lower level, but the good ceiling height and windows with deep sills make it so you hardly notice you~re below grade. There’s a living room on this level, plus a huge closet and room for a table or desk as bonus dining/workspace. The second-floor unit is bright and spacious with three murals, two good-size bedrooms, and a super stylish bathroom with frameless glass shower door and arabesque tile surround. Enjoy luxurious design without breaking the bank in a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers. This fabulous home is a stone’s throw from Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink; just a few blocks from Cedar Park; and convenient to the Baltimore Ave trolley and shopping/dining strip.
