First time on market since 1929! 84 East 2nd Street is a commanding, corner, very special, one family, 2 story, brick townhouse with pristinely manicured, wraparound, landscaped grounds, as well as, a garage with an additional parking space in the driveway for a second family car. This house is unique and stunning in stature and character. The landscape and building architecture speaks to all who pass by, as well as, the owner who is literally adored by all who walk or drive by, this house is all love!
The first floor offers two main entrances, one on East 2nd Street which receives you with a formal entryway with a coat closet before you step into the wide open, truly beautiful layout that awaits you. Proudly boasting a very spacious, large, open concept living room and dining room sun-drenched with triple exposure and an over-sized bay window. Step into the large, lovely, eat-in kitchen that invites great conversation and good times as it will take you out to the side of the property or alternate main entrance where there is a very special ambiance and energy that has been created, which allows you to enjoy this large patio area in its full splendor. The special flavor, the uniqueness of the grounds and exterior architectural design, this rare gem brings to the table is not to be missed as it comes around for the first time in almost 100 years!!
Currently there is wall to wall carpeting throughout the first and second floors, as the owner has meticulously preserved the integrity of the beautiful, original parquet oak wood floors with walnut and maple trim throughout the entire first and second floors, which we have exposed a large section of for viewing.
There are three bedrooms and a full bath on the top floor and a half bath in the finished basement. The large and sunlit finished basement has always made a great family room, with wraparound windows and 8 foot ceilings and an option to come in from the side yard with an exterior entrance, as well as, the interior staircase.
The 9 foot ceilings throughout the first and second floors really are indicative of the grandeur flow this house exudes as the 9 foot ceilings and the great layout, as well as, the finished basement which is of course never included in the square footage, and this finished basement is a space your family will spread their wings in and really enjoy a lot of time in as well.

With 20% down, which is approximately $259,000, at a 3 5/8% interest rate, that means it is $456 per hundred thousand that you are borrowing, and you may do better, your mortgage would be approximately $4,725 monthly and with your tax write off at the end of the year, you will recoup a relatively significant amount of that monthly mortgage payment.
