☞ DWELL: 200 Edgecombe Cottage House

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, January 31st by appointment only. The small cottage house (yellow house to the far left) on 200 Edgecombe Avenue, between West 144th and 143rd Street is a 22 foot wide potential charmer for the right buyer. The well under a million price tag is great for deal seekers but usually comes with issues to consider. The asking price of $699K is one of the lowest in the market but the actual lot might be smaller than most i.e. smaller back yard. The three family townhouse come with architectural plans because the new owners will need them to finish up the job.

Looking into the property, it seems that the owner had started a gut renovation and ran out of money. Bare joist hold up the floors and exposed ceilings with electrical and plumbing yet to be installed. The property is currently laid out as 3,700 square feet of living space with five bedrooms three full baths spread out on three floors. Another huge distraction is that the back yard faces a larger completely abandoned six story apartment building which might provide too many variables for future home buyers to be comfortable with. This property is only two blocks away from the A,B,C,D express train at 145th Street. Contact Andrew Shell tel.917.662.2666. Photo by Ulysses.
