About 247 E 5th Street Building

Nestled into one of Kensington's most charming and convenient blocks, 247 East 5th Street is waiting for its next owners. If you are looking for size, lots of bedrooms and parking, look no further. The home is loaded with charm including a front porch, back deck, perfect parlor floor layout and a pool for those hot summer days. The building measures 22 feet wide and sits on an impressive 30 by 100 foot lot. Once you park your car in your private driveway, you are greeted up the stoop by a lovely front porch overlooking the leafy tree lined block. Plenty of room for rocking chairs or a swing to take in the scenes of a perfect Brooklyn neighborhood. The parlor floor of the house has a large entry hallway with the oversized living room by its side. Anchored by a decorative mantle the living room faces south and gets lots of natural sunlight. Behind the living room is the separate dining room. Big enough for Thanksgiving day feasts yet perfect for weeknight meals as well. The kitchen is adjacent and features updated stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, natural wood cabinets and three large windows for abundant light. There is also a powder room located on this floor. With access from both the dining room and kitchen, the backyard is the true showstopper of the house. A wooden deck runs the width of the home and surrounds your own private pool! No need to drive all the way to the beach to cool down this summer. To the side of the pool is a patio for extra seating and room for planting. The bedroom floor is located on the second floor of the home and has four bedrooms and 1 bath. The primary bedroom is located in the front of the house, facing south. It is oversized with plenty of room for any bedroom furniture, as well as a built-in closet along the east wall. Two of the remaining three bedrooms are queen sized and the back bedroom easily works as a nursery or small bedroom. The bathroom has lovely blue and white tiles and a window for light and air. The third floor of the house is one of the most magical parts. A large bedroom overlooking the treetops is at the top of the stairs. Behind that is a second, smaller room that works perfectly as an office secluded from the rest of the home, making the perfect work from home setup. There is also a large attic space which works perfectly for storage. The basement of the house presents an amazing opportunity. Currently set up as a blank canvas, it can work perfectly as a rec room, den, gym, full home office or workshop. There is a half bath in the back and windows on the side of the home. Located on E 5th Street just off of Albemarle, the location could not be any better. PS 130 is 2 blocks away and local hotspots including Hamiltons and Thai Farm Kitchen are within easy walking distance. The F and G trains at Church Ave are a quick 5 minute walk away and Prospect Park and the Parade Grounds are both close by.
