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.
