Most of the major websites where we (Realtors) market our listings has one major flaw - the inability to hear the true story of a home, before a buyer enters the home. Here is that true story of 2 Eclipse Avenue, from my perspective.
In a market of similar 2 bedroom homes in Norwalk, Eclipse really stands out. Upon entering the front 3-season porch and sun-room, you already appreciate the charm of the home. This comfortable inside/outside space has many windows, allowing for the breeze of the summer days to come naturally chill the days/evenings.
Into the home, you enter into the living room, with hardwood floors into the open kitchen space - and boy are they beautiful. There is a formal dining room, that combines well with the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is well-maintained, and recently updated. It has lots of extra cabinet and counter space, as well as all the appliances you need, including dishwasher. There is also a cooler for wine, a bonus for those who appreciate a cool wine on a warm summer evening. The cabinets are Craftmade, and of the best quality, and it really shows.
The two bedrooms are through a hallway directly from the dining room, with the kitchen right at the center, allowing guests to have easy-access. On either side are the bedrooms, both with hardwood floors, and of good size for such a quaint home. As you go through this space, you notice character everywhere, from the trim and moldings indicative of the early 1900 construction in Norwalk, and the curved entrances into certain rooms.
The real potential value here is located in the attic space, just a walk up from the dining room. With some imagination, this space can be converted to additional living space.
Rounding off a perfect home for first-time homebuyer, the full unfinished basement, and 1 car detached garage round off a home worth taking a look at.
All of this, is located within walking distance of parks, schools, transportation, and some of my favorite restaurants in town. You can't beat this location!
This well-maintained home needs no work, unless you have the vision to expand it upwards - possible thanks to walk-up attic space. Otherwise, what you get is a great home, perfect for those looking to test the Norwalk area, or for the investor looking for a small property to start your fortune. However you ultimately use it, it is a space worth seeing!
