Beautiful Original Northwood Home for sale
So - for a lot of reasons, none of which have to do with how incredibly awesome this house and the neighborhood are, my wife and I have moved back to our old house and put this one up for sale.
It's seriously someone's very lucky day. And if you know my wife, you'll know why.
She's utterly meticulous. And she over saw everything that was done on this house.
Three years ago it went through a sizable renovation. It got a new kitchen (Corian countertops, Jennair stove), the bathrooms were updated (including a hand held shower in the basement bathroom that's very handy for washing dogs), new appliances (everything energy star), new furnace, water heater, gutters, refinished floors, fireplace doors, new fancy fireplace thingy that closes at the top and saves energy, even custom made window well covers. The yard has lovely and low maintenance landscaping. The energy costs are extremely reasonable (never over $300).
And Original Northwood is a great place to live. It's very GLBT friendly, it's a great mix of families with kids that play together, single people and couples. It's also one of the most racially mixed neighborhoods in the city. It's 2 minutes from Morgan State, 7 minutes from Hampden, 15 minutes from Penn Station, and 10 minutes from Hamilton. The community association is active and effective - they even brought in people to get the streets cleared during the big blizzard.
The house has three bedrooms, a small, well designed kitchen, two full baths (2nd floor and basement), living room, dining room, little front porch, flagstone patio, one car detached garage.
It's on the market for $259,900.
