Renovated, Bright Owner Duplex with Valuable Rental or Spacious Three Floor Townhouse: Value with Flexibility

Starting this spring Prospect Park will be your backyard, just outside fifteen sun-gathering windows, after you move right into 125 Sherman Street in Windsor Terrace. At the corner of Terrace Place, widening from 18 feet on Sherman to the 38 foot back wall, this uniquely majestic, 1918 Mission-style brick townhouse impresses with its tawny brickwork, twin Spanish arches, and high right-angled stoop. A spacious shaded "Grotto," second floor porch, and third-floor terrace, and triple-wide sidewalk provide space for all ages to play outside. No rowhouse with a skylight or two can compare to this luminous corner house, where double-width Terrace Place combines with the open vista afforded by Temple Court to bring all-day sun to every single room. Imaginatively and intelligently gut renovated in 2004, this 3,020 square foot legal two family would easily and economically convert to a one family the equal of any in Windsor Terrace. The owner's duplex alone is bigger than most single family homes and similar units in Windsor Terrace. It has 3 bedrooms, a large, windowed laundry room, and 2 baths. The wide-open living and dining area spans the depth of the property, right angling into a chef's kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry, designer backsplash, and granite counter tops. A bath with a roomy shower hides behind a large floating closet, part of abundant storage space. Front and back mud rooms help clean up from Prospect Park; feed yourself out of a large pantry room with a second fridge. The even-brighter 2nd floor has wood floors, large, sunny bedrooms each with walk-in or double-width closets, practical laundry room, and updated, oversized bath with designer fixtures, subway tile walls and ceiling, and a deep tub with marble shelving. The 3rd floor, with a separate, private entrance but also accessible from the duplex, is a 1,000 square foot 3-bedroom rental with laundry, terrace and brick-walled kitchen. It can be delivered vacant or with current long-term tenants. Both times when I have been rental broker for the unit it was snapped up in a matter of days. The current tenants have abided since 2016; each prior tenant, over 18 years, stayed for multiple years with only transitional breaks in the rental stream. All mechanicals are updated, including a 3-zone forced air dual heating and central air system, topped off in 2018 with a tankless, unlimited water heater system. Recently, the roof was replaced and external brickwork repointed. Steps to Prospect Park, shopping, F/G trains and all the amenities of the neighborhood, and on the same block as PS 154, with convenient street parking in a safe, long-established community.
