In a Norwalk market devoid of quality options, 30 Rowan Street is a unique offering with some interesting possibilities for the clever investor or buyer.
This single family home is located in the center of the action. It is only one minute from the East Norwalk train station, and about the same to some great restaurants, and Sweet Ashley's the best ice cream shop around. That's not to mention 3 minutes to I95 by car, and 3 minutes to Calf Pasture Beach, or 10 minutes by bike. It's an ideal location for today's action-seeking buyer.
This home is a Victorian-era construction, with all the character you want for a home of this age. The wrap-around front porch gives a space for the owner to spend outside during the summer months.
The front door leads to a foyer, but is otherwise central to the home. On the left there is a large living room, with a bumped-out window, 9+ foot ceilings, and original hardwood floors that are to die for. The next two rooms are the dining room and den, both with the same hardwood floors and high ceilings. There is a full bath here that is shared with the kitchen.
The eat-in-kitchen is completely updated only a few years ago. It has a HUGE pantry that could easily be converted to a laundry room, or shelved to make it more functional. The large, private deck is accessed from the kitchen, as well as a large back yard and parking. Part of the basement can be accessed through the kitchen as well.
Upstairs, there are four full bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The same hardwood floors continue upstairs. There is a bonus walk-in closet in the hallway for storage. Up the walk-up staircase is a large attic space for storage, or a possible additional room for a future buyer.
What truly makes this home special, is the potential use of the space. This two family is ready to be converted into a two-family home, by a lucky buyer. There is a second egress off an upstairs bedroom, that can be converted to a kitchen. This home can comfortably be converted into two, two bedroom units, with the possibility for the second level to have bonus space in the attic. It just takes some due diligence and clever buyers.
There is a large basement with utilities access inside and outside, a newer roof, and lots of nice updates by the current owner including a new sewer line.
It doesn't get better that this home, in a Norwalk market without any quality options. Investors be aware, this is something that has huge potential for a cash-flow positive property. Or, just move in and enjoy a classic Victorian-era home, with four bedrooms upstairs, a full bathroom, and bonus space in the attic, all in a location that is unbeatable.
