Contrary to popular belief, we do have listings in New York City limits. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo week, we thought we'd take you on a pilgrimage (south) of the suburban border and share the latest chapters of our Bronx tale:
COUNTRY CLUB | 1368 Kearney Avenue | $1,999,999
Hardly archetypal of in-city-limits living, this recent construction (2011) Country Club home brings the "sub" to "urban" through its 8,700 square feet of living space on a gated, nearly quarter-acre lot. And it's hardly an empty suit: the kitchen includes Prevo custom cabinetry, Azul Bahia marble and green onyx counters and appliances by Wolf and Thermador. There's an above-ground pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen, along with a detached two-car garage. City living isn't supposed to be this good, but who's complaining?
RIVERDALE | 4455 Douglas Avenue 12C | $879,000
Living steps from the "LAST EXIT BEFORE BRIDGE" sign on the Henry Hudson Parkway speaks volumes to convenience. This 12th floor two-bedroom soars over the Hudson River in the coveted C line of the Hayden on Hudson condominium, highlighted by a 378 square foot westward-facing curved balcony. Sunlight hits every room of this unit, with 3/4" oak box-parquet floors through most of its 1,351 square feet. These don't come along often.
WOODLAWN | 4319 Kepler Avenue | $539,000
Woodlawn is the first Bronx neighborhood hit on southbound Metro North trains and the last stop on northbound 4 trains, meaning many options Midtown East. This 2,244 square foot single-family home has been nicely maintained, with a two-car garage and driveway to complete the package.
SPUYTEN DUYVIL | 2390 Palisade Avenue 45G | $440,000
This co-op in Roy Park Towers, a "micro townhouse-style" building, has something of a unicorn feature to most vertical dwellers: a staircase. The spacious unit features an eat-in kitchen and second level with space for three beds, along with a wall of closets and hallway bath.
WAKEFIELD | 4339 Bruner Avenue | $599,000
Close to the 2 train, this brick two-story, legal two-family home captures a more quintessential Bronx living arrangement with a perfect balance of modern and original charm.
