About This Property:
The old adage "Location, Location, Location" holds true for 34 Clay Street -- located walking distance to the train, SONO and the bars/restaurants, the new mall, the movie theater, and MORE!
Possibly outshining the location, is the condition - the owner-occupied first floor has been updated in every single way possible. You enter the home by way of a large sunroom or three-season room with hardwood floors. This bright space has views of the quiet neighborhood, the mature plantings, and makes you feel like you are enjoying nature. Relax here and enjoy the cool breeze that inevitably crosses this spacious, bright room.
The next two rooms as you enter the front door are the living room and dining room which also have hardwood floors and plenty of character expected for a home built in the early 1900s -- there are large pillars separating the rooms, a mock fireplace at the center of the living room, and large moldings on the windows that are indicative of this period.
On to the eat in kitchen where the quality of upgrades is unique, featuring quartz countertops, new cabinets and appliances, new floor, and more. Even though the home is heated by oil, there is a natural gas stove. The first of two bedrooms is off the kitchen, which is large enough for a king, and with plenty of closet space. It also has a bay window, built-in shelving, and dark hardwood floors.
The other side of the kitchen gives you access to a door to the back yard, and the hallway that connects the full bathroom and second bedroom. The door to the back yard is unique, with a built-in slider that allows the solid door to go from screen to window and back again. Again with hardwood, the second bedroom is also bright and airy, and quite large. The bathroom has many updates, and needs no immediate care. The kitchen also leads to a full basement that is private for the first floor, and includes a large space to do laundry - including washer and dryer.
With a separate entrance, the upstairs unit has two bedrooms and a living room, all quite large. This unit can be a 3 bed, 1 bath rental if you convert the living room into a third bedroom. There is also access to the most unique attic I have seen -- with walk up stairs, this attic has windows on four sides, and is open with vaulted ceilings, perfect for finishing with proper permission from the city. But, it also has water views, which is incredible this far from the water.
There is a small back yard that has been well maintained, and plenty of flower beds that can be maintained for a serene, private entertaining space. The location is walkable to Sono, the movie theater, the new mall, and the water -- with Vet's Park only a short bike ride away. With potential income between $3400 and $3700 (or more), this property is priced to sell and won't last long.
Besides the great spaces just described, there are newer double-pane windows throughout the home, classic stained-glass windows in the dining room, and lots of little quirks that make this home incredible. Click below to contact Joe or Chris to see it!
