Warm, welcoming Victorian charmer in the heart of Hawthorne just waiting for its next steward. This gracious home has been lovingly maintained for many years but is wanting updates to be restored to its former glory. Incredible architectural details abound from the marble entry steps and brick facade to the marquetry inlaid floors on the main level (central star, herringbone, borders), lovely mouldings, high ceilings, built-in cupboards, original subway tiles, fluted columns supporting a grand archway, and crown moulding to name a few. The upper floors with 4 generous bedrooms and 1 bath with clawfoot tub, are a pastiche of drop ceilings (begging to be removed), original random width pine floors, linoleum tiles, pressed tin ceiling & wall tiles and wood panelling. An "onion" house, waiting to be peeled back one layer at a time to the new owners taste and their heart's delight. In solid, live-able, mortgageable condition this house is ideal for the fixer upper Buyer who doesn't want a complete shell but enjoys a project. There are wonderful renovation loans out there, talk to your mortgage broker! Excellent, central location just off the Avenue of the Arts this home is a Walker & Biker's "paradise" with excellent transit options, midway between Ellsworth/Federal and the Lombard/South subway stations. Steps to the heart of the Italian Market and around the corner from the brand new Sprouts market, Target and much more to come! Equidistant to Marion Anderson and Palumbo Recreation centers and across the street from Ridgeway park and public pool. Just across Broad to the 18th & Christian Y or toward 11th Street for Fearless Athletics and Crossfit so you can work off the Dunkin Donuts (just down the street.) Be delighted to see this charming home today!
