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 51 Bayview Avenue, from my perspective.
There is something special about a home with a combination of move-in ready updates, and a location that makes it ideal for commuting to NYC, all under $350,000 - 51 Bayview Avenue fits the bill.
When you enter the home, you are immediately welcomed into a foyer, with nice updates. The 4-inch real-wood bench lends a level of character to this space that makes it a perfect mud-room. Inside the home, you enter a hallway and go right into the living room, with a gas fireplace and hardwood floors. The newly painted space, updated light fixtures/ceiling fan, and more make this cozy room ideal for lazy-Sundays.
Next you enter into the gourmet and modern kitchen. Updated less than two years ago, the kitchen is oversized, with no lack of space to maneuver. There are stainless steel appliances, a French farmhouse, double sink, that is also deep, and room for a table or additional counter space. The substantial Corian counter-tops and abundant cabinet space make the kitchen perfect for the home chef. You can access the back parking space, off street parking, or plenty of space for a barbecue during the summers.
The first full bath is also contained on this level, through the kitchen. While entertaining, this makes it convenient for guests, and provides privacy for your space. Both bathrooms have also had updates, new vanity, toilet, tub and more. They have those same modern touches that make the home feel immaculate.
Finally, on this level, is a dining room in similar condition to the living room, with new hardwood, and more. It is also a possible fourth bedroom, in case the buyer needs to fit a guest room, or for an elderly parent. With the current dining room as it is situated, this level has a nice, circular flow around the stair case and basement access.
The upper level is newly carpeted with three bedrooms, with large closets, as well as access to a large attic, up another staircase. The full bathroom on this level has a new tub and other updates, giving the perfect amount of space.
The basement is fully-equipped with a sump pump and waterproof basement system, so it can be perfect for storage, but not quite big enough to finish. Laundry is located directly at the bottom of the stairs, making it convenient.
A home in excellent condition must be matched by a location that has value. In this case, this home is less than ten minutes walk from the train, making it ideal for a commuter. Owning a car is unnecessary because everything is in walking distance, including the supermarket, the movie theater, and restaurants and bars galore. The quick access to downtown SONO rounds off this excellent location. Despite this convenience, 51 Bayview is still located in a residential area, near parks and more.
51 Bayview Avenue in Norwalk is a home priced to sell, and a value unseen in Norwalk. A future buyer gets a move-in ready home, with 3 beds, 2 baths, off street parking, and plenty of space for entertaining, storage, and more. Tell your friends and family about this one, before it leaves the market.
