Visit this home virtually: http://www.vht.com/434056301/IDXS - Back on the market and ready for a new buyer with a new, reduced price! Enjoy stunning views and modern updates - move in ready! This 1880’s duplex was “taken back to the studs” and renovated in the early 2000’s, leaving the original heart pine floors, and other period accents. Enter through the new solid wood front door into a cozy foyer that opens to 17’ long Living Room with Art and Crafts wood columns with electric Fireplace insert. One step down is the Dining Room with beamed ceilings, faux FP, with adjacent sunny Powder Room w stacked W/D. Bright white cabinets, SS appliances and black granite counters set aclassic tone in the Kitchen. Open wide the kitchen French doors to the 12’ x 20’ screened porch with hot tub. Soak your cares away and enjoy some of the best views of Battery Park and the Delaware River, or watch the game on your porch cable TV. Floor-length porch curtains can be closed to offer total privacy. Low-maintenance, no-mow, fully landscaped rear yard flourishes in this sunny southern exposure. A quaint potting shed and wide paved walkways lead you past beautiful gardens of perennials, grasses and evergreens. There’s even a tiny frog pond. Sit quietly on the paver patio and watch the birds come to drink and chat. Inside, the foyer’s stairs lead to a second floor with a large full bath with tub/shower, and views of the Park. A cozy office or 2nd bedroom faces the street, catching the sunset sky. The master bedroom has incredible views from the light-filled South window - lie in bed and look through the Park trees all the way to the Reedy Point Bridge, miles down the Delaware River. So relaxing…or enjoy the a perfect seat for Separation Day fireworks and other town events.
