A home of your own where South Slope meets Greenwood Heights. 297 18th Street is a cheerful and sun-filled two-story house, set back from the street with a pretty front garden, surrounded by a rod iron fence. This legal two-family, built in the 1920s, has been used for decades as a single family home. The brick and stone stoop leads up to the bluestone porch and the front door. Inside you'll find inlaid floors and a 25' living space that accommodates a dinner-party-sized table and a full living room. At the back of the house, the U-shaped kitchen has a tremendous amount of storage, room for a table, island or a built-in banquette, and a sliding door for easy access to the backyard. The windowed sink means you won't mind dish duty with such a nice view of your private outdoor oasis and the perfect window sill for keeping some cooking herbs at the ready.
Upstairs, the king-sized primary bedroom has a wall of closets and leafy backyard views. The 2nd bedroom spans the width of the house and has three windows with warm, south-facing light and extra room to expand the hall bathroom if desired. The 3rd room is bright and cozy with a skylight and could easily be used as an office or nursery.
There is so much to love about the location between 5th and 6th Aves at the juncture of two amazing neighborhoods. Battle Hill Tavern, Greenwood Park, Giuseppina's pizza, and Southside Coffee are local favorites. Slope Park Playground at 18th and 6th Ave is always hopping and Open Source Gallery has art exhibits and live jazz every Wednesday in the summer months. Last but not leastdon't forget the wonders of Prospect Park for outdoor fun and year-round activities.
