548 S 54th St – SOLD

Looking for an investment property but don’t want to invest a lot of time? Are you ready to own your own home but could use help paying the mortgage by having a tenant? Either way, this fully renovated duplex is the perfect package, ready to go and wrapped up with a bow–or, more accurately, this developer’s signature green door. Totally renovated with a Euro-inspired design, high-efficiency mechanicals and appliances, and a sleek contemporary style, this property is the definition of turnkey. Both units were rehabbed with care, with better-than-builder-grade finishes like space-saving sliding doors on the bathrooms, sleek flat-front white cabinets mixed with stylish stainless steel, funky Edison bulb light fixtures and LG washer/dryer combo units. Unit 1 (currently tenant-occupied) is a spacious bilevel with two bedrooms on the lower level, but the good ceiling height and windows with deep sills make it so you hardly notice you’re below grade. There’s a huge closet in the landing between, and the master bedroom has enough room for a designated office or vanity space. This unit has exclusive access the rear yard, the perfect size for grilling and entertaining al fresco. The second-floor studio is bright and spacious and the open layout provides tons of options for furniture arrangement. Just past the kitchen is a large closet area with built-in shelving–add a privacy curtain and you’ve got a great dressing area. This property offers easy access to public transportation as well tons of dining and shopping options along both Baltimore Ave and the 52nd St strip.

Build your investment portfolio with this turnkey Carroll Park property, or be a smart homeowner and live in one unit while having a tenant help pay down your mortgage. Fully rehabbed in 2008, this duplex has nice original details along with smart modernizations such as electric heaters where fireplaces once were—no need to worry about any PGW bills as both units are completely electric. The first-floor unit, with carpet throughout, has a nice-size front room with oversized window and two good-size bedrooms, a nicely appointed hall bath and ceramic tiled eat-in kitchen with direct access to the back yard. The second-floor unit has a large front room with original decorative mantel and bay window, a larger back bedroom with original built-in armoire, a slightly smaller middle room (but big enough to be a true bedroom) and ceramic tiled hall bath and eat-in kitchen. The basement has separate access to use for storage, or the potential to install laundry. This property is convenient to Lancaster Avenue and the 10 and 15 trolley lines.
