Irvington Lovely

You know how neighborhoods work. Even the most premium neighborhoods have their good and "bad" streets once you get to know them. Irvington is no different. This home is sited on a premium street just north of Thompson. Not as large as some of it's neighbors, the home has more to offer than those with less wisely used space. Three bedrooms upstairs with a master bath is what most families are looking for and all generously sized. Thanks to two master closets, the master bath was easily added fairly recently enabling two baths on the upstairs level. Need a guest room/den? A full, legal egress bedroom is downstairs. Family/media room? Check. Yard? Yes, and not the postage stamped size one often finds. To my vintage-loving eye, the best parts of the home were the original box beamed ceilings and wainscoting in the dining room and living room, the gorgeous staircase and Craftsman tiled fireplace. Sadly, so many of these homes have ripped them out over time, and many in the 1970's (of all eras to decide to remodel). Multiple offers within a few days. Listed at $725,000. More photos here.
