The finely renovated and restored home boasts extensive original woodwork and moldings, airy 9' 4' foot ceilings, raised plaster accents, and hardwood floors throughout. Tons of amazing sunlight brightens the ambiance, especially in the afternoon, thanks to oversized southwest-facing city windows overlooking gardens and partial views of the ocean. There's plenty of space to lounge, watch TV, or entertain guests comfortably in the large living/dining room. The modern thoughtfully-designed windowed kitchen is great for prepping food and cooking meals, featuring ample countertops and wood cabinetry, and full-size appliances.

Built in 1914, 566 44th Street is a charming 16-unit cooperative with a live-in super, gym, laundry facility, basement storage, and plans for a roof deck. An inviting lobby adorned with gorgeous original detail and stained glass windows welcomes your arrival. The building is financially sound and pet-friendly. Subletting is ok after 3 years. Solar panels on the roof reduce energy costs, and income from generated electricity goes to the cash reserve.
