Tracy Street in the West Village recently got a major real estate boost. Four properties at the corner of Tracy and Elmwood have been either completely gutted or are in the process of being renovated. The owner has been acquiring the properties in recent years in hopes of making a significant investment in village. The brick houses have been repointed and painted, which has made a huge difference on the street, visually. But what is really amazing is the interior transformation. One of the 19th century Victorian houses (lead photo - right) was just completed and is currently available for $1750 a month. It's not cheap, but then again there are not many places that you can find with such modern aesthetics and amenities. Buffalo architect Adam Sokol has done a bang up job with the two-storey (3-storey atrium), open floor plan unit. Additionally, the owner is in the process of converting part of the backyard into a secured parking.
According to the Craigslist ad
, the unit boasts a "fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, stainless appliances and numerous recessed lights. A half bath and in-unit washer/dryer are located conveniently on this level. Ascend the natural wood stairs and feel the sleek, smooth rail fashioned from the same wood as the floor. 2 bedrooms with generous closets are located here. The full bath is fitted with high-end fixtures and layered with elegant tile. Glance down to see the full beauty of the lower level and then upwards into the skylight. Designated outdoor space is included with this unit. An annual lease with monthly payments of $1750 is available; utilities are additional. Off-street parking included. All exterior walls are fully insulated. Forced air heat and central air. Small pets are permitted, smoking is not. Shown by appointment only. Call Mark W. DiGiampaolo @ 716-887-3891. MJ Peterson Real Estate."
If interested in the space, let Mark know that Buffalo Rising sent you. Coming up I'll be featuring more of these properties, some of which will be available for lease, while others are fully occupied.
