Status: OFFER ACCEPTED.The Hamilton House! Nestled in Kensington near Windsor Terrace, sits a charming two-family house overlooking an enchanting weeping birch tree. Like the house of children's drawings, this prewar Victorian style house has a perched roof and the perfect number of windows, allowing for 4 light-filled exposures. This fully detached house offers a large front porch, private parking and a backyard spacious enough to plant a flower and vegetable garden and still have plenty of room for play. A deck overlooking this sanctuary is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching birds of all feathers rest their weary wings. Both the first floor one bedroom rental apartment and the owner's duplex boast original details and parquet wood floors throughout. All the rooms are generously sized, and the owner's duplex offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a sun-drenched living room, dining room with an exposed brick wall and a fully equipped, renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. A semi-finished basement offers plenty of storage and opportunity for expansion. Perfectly situated on a tree-lined street, the house is within a 5 minute commute to the F and G trains on Ft. Hamilton Parkway or Church Avenue, and bus lines run along Caton Avenue, McDonald Avenue and Church Avenue. Just 3 short blocks from the Greenwood Playground, the focal point for many neighborhood activities: movie nights, art in the park, singing, dancing, drumming and a fall festival. Near the historic Green-Wood Cemetery, PS 154 Greenmarket, the Parade Grounds and Prospect Park. The park is a destination throughout the year with an ice skating rink in winter and a brand new splash park for hot, summer days. Shopping abounds on nearby Church Avenue, and even residents from other areas of Brooklyn come in for the fine faire offered by restaurants such as The Farm, Hamiltons, Finas and Brancaccios.
