This Greenwood Heights townhouse — on a quiet block near Greenwood Cemetery at 344 22nd Street — has been completely renovated, with virtually everything new, from the redone facade in front to the newly installed lawn in the rear. It appears to be a flip, but the renovation seems to have been undertaken with some care, and it’s a nice-looking house for those after a modern-ish look.
It’s got a bright, airy look to it, with a glass wall leading to a terrace at the rear of the parlor floor, and a second terrace above. There are also windows along the unattached side wall. Note the front door has switched sides.
The house has three stories and a “garden” level that looks to be largely subterranean (though the listing does claim it has “bright windows”).
The parlor floor is open plan, natch; in the center is a spacious and fetching kitchen with Pietra Cardosa counters and an island topped with walnut butcher block. There’s a gas fireplace with a stone surround and an office in the rear.
The second floor holds a master suite with a den and a private terrace, as well as a master bath with a shower that’s glass walled on both sides, and a distinctive antique-looking vanity.
Upstairs are three more bedrooms and two full baths. The bottom floor/basement is an open “rec room” that houses the mechanicals as well as a powder room.
Said mechanicals are new, as is the roof, the plumbing and the electric. There’s zoned central heating and air conditioning.
Having sold to an LLC in July of last year for $1.425 million, the house, listed by Tamara Abir of Halstead, is asking $2.75 million. What do you think of the place, and the asking price?
