91-20 97th Street Park and Thrive
Charming, meticulously maintained, fully detached, 1-family home with desirable, private 2-car driveway & sprawling backyard + deck, make this pleasantly located, Woodhaven, Queens home one to snatch up quickly. Its 2.5 stories & sizable finished basement (with excellent ceiling height & 1/2 bath) accommodate your taking the full house for your private residence (or letting it function as an easy mother/daughter home). The vinyl siding is neutral in tone & well cared-for, & the over-sized bayfront window, as well as 2nd-story balcony, give this Revived Colonial home lots of curb appeal. Roomy eat-in kitchen with door out to decked back porch; true formal dining room; large living room built for entertaining & simply kicking-back; along with all-season sunroom (that affords a sweet view of tree & shrubs out front): these are just a few of the selling points of this Woodhaven Manor gem. Four nicely sized bedrooms plus attic storage promise you'll never be shy on space. (Lots of extra closets & nooks where another bath or even a study/office could be added.) The newly installed, pitched roof; many sunlit, thermal windows (on all 4 sides); new gas boiler & pristine hot water tank; electrical & plumbing upgrades; attractive backyard stone-pavers, with flower beds & outdoor lighting at the periphery; in combination with a front garden, set off by a spanking new, brick/slate stoop and entry door...all pledge that this home was never lacking for solid maintenance. Attractive gated driveway & yard fencing give you the privacy all folks crave & the easy ability to have your pet enjoy the outdoors. In fact, you might opt to re-install a garage & still have plenty of exterior space left over for built-in barbeque, outside dining, installing a hot tub, and caring for your inspired garden. Hardwood, inlaid parquet floors; oak-strip flooring, several gorgeous stained glass window panels; detailed, beamed dining room ceiling; tiled baths; graceful front staircase with hardwood spindles; & even a delightful rear staircase to the 2nd floor: these features are as compelling as the nearby J & A train stops & varied bus service (throughout the borough & into Brooklyn, Manhattan & beyond).
