Newly renovated top floor apt in a 2 family historic Brownstone in the Longwood Historic District. The apartment is a 2 bed/1 bath with great terrace plus an office/den, brand new kitchen and appliances, new bathroom, freshly painted throughout, and tons of sunlight with windows on 4 sides. This is a full floor apt, which means you have no neighbor on any side of you and are the only tenant on the 2nd floor, with no neighbors above you either. If you prize peace, quiet, and a calm environment, this apt fits the bill.
I am the owner, in my 30s, and my family has lived in the nabe for over 60 years. I live around the corner in one of the other brownstones, and am very actively involved in this property. The existing 1st floor tenants are 2 professional, educated, 20 something young ladies, one from Boston, the other from California, who both work in the city.
The Longwood Historic District is one of 3 historic districts in all of the Bronx, composed of a collection of unique and beautiful brownstones along tree lined streets. We are approximately 4 blocks from the 2/5 express trains at the Prospect Ave station, 6 blocks from the 6 local train at East 149th, and about 25 mins to 14th st. The area has a number of amenities within walking distance, including laundromats, supermarkets, dry cleaners, pharmacies, and some pretty good restaurants. We have 2 new dog runs within a 15 minute walk, as well as a major park (St. Mary's) with a jogging track, indoor year round lap pool, gym, tennis courts, and playground. Mainstream shopping can be found a short trip away at the Gateway Center, including Target, BJs, Best Buy, Home Depot, etc.
The ideal tenant would be someone who values coming home to a quiet and safe environment, and enjoys a casual and friendly relationship with the few other tenants in the building. You should be a non-smoker/drug free. Parties are great on occasion, but not every weekend. We are very pet friendly too!
The apt is available December 1 and good credit is a must. When responding, I would appreciate you providing some information about yourself. Please note there is no pool or gym on the premises. It is a glitch with the website.
