House of the Week: Pristine Carriage Home with Studio Space in East Kensington
We brought a fixer-upper near the creativity-brimming Trenton Avenue to your attention a few weeks ago, so it’s only fitting that we showcase a gleaming, restored home this time around. (Note: The property is listed as being on E Firth Street, but an approval to change the address to 2520 Trenton Ave. is pending from the Office of Property Assessment.)
Among the homes larger appointments are a landscaped deck with retractable awning and two separately attached garages, one of which can either hold three cars or be used as a workspace. The other garage has 1-car parking.
Inside, the first level offers studio space with a kitchen, half bathroom, and separate entrance. The second level living, dining, and kitchen areas encompass the open floor plan, which has cathedral ceilings, skylights, and clerestory windows. There’s also a wood-burning fireplace.
Bonus: the listing says patio furniture and grill “may all be included in the sale”.
