Charming & quaint cape-style home w/ 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom & 1080 sq ft of living space. Located on 0.14 acres, which backs up to a park-like setting (City of New Haven owned West River Open Space), this well-maintained home is conveniently located within walking distance of Whalley Avenue and RT 63 with shopping and public transportation nearby. The main level of the home has a large open living room dining room area. The master bedroom is also on the first floor as is the full bathroom. The eat-in kitchen is adjacent to the open living room dining room area and has a five burner gas oven/range, refrigerator and double basin stainless steel sink. The main level has laminate flooring with tile flooring in the bathroom and vinyl flooring in the kitchen. All of the windows in the home have been replaced. Although official records reflect a 1 bedroom home, the upstairs living space has been used as a 2nd bedroom. The 2nd floor also has a space at the top of the stairs which could be used as an office. The basement has possibilities to be finished to create more living space. The hot air furnace (2005) and hot water heater (2012) use natural gas. The home has central AC, is connected to public water and sewer, 200 amp electrical service, vinyl siding (2010), 12 year-old roof and a rebuilt chimney. Convenient commuting location with RT15 only one mile away. Lastly, there is one car garage (which needs painting and roof repair). This is a great opportunity!
