You definitely don’t see listings like this everyday. This freestanding home comes all the way from City Island, a small Bronx neighborhood that also happens to be an island about a mile and a half long by a half mile wide. At this seaside village (where about 4,500 New Yorkers live), Victorian homes with porches aren’t all that rare. Still, despite the fact you can access Manhattan by the 6 train and then the bus, it does feel like this whole area is a secret hideaway in New York City.

Although the property at 33 Tier Street is a freestanding home, this listing is for a co-op apartment within the residence. The apartment in question holds two bedrooms, 1,200 square feet, and waterfront views. Plus, residents have access to the dreamy front porch. The asking price? $599,021 with a monthly maintenance of $700.

Although a buyer would be sharing the house, they get their own private deck with a partial waterfront view. And who wouldn’t enjoy a front porch like that?

There’s a large, open living and dining room area inside. The exposed brick partition has two wood-burning fireplaces that face both the living and the dining rooms. There are also hardwood floors and crown moldings throughout the apartment.

Although it’s an old house, the interior has been totally upgraded. To the right, there’s the sliding glass door that leads to the private patio.

The open dining area has enough space to seat a crowd.

As for the eat-in kitchen, it’s been upgraded with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. And the kitchen island fits four more seats!

There are two bedrooms total, and the master is quite big, with some exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace. There’s also a beautiful rounded window–what we’re guessing is an original detail of the facade.

It doesn’t get much more unique than this–a co-op inside a freestanding home right on City Island. If you don’t mind that commute, it doesn’t seems like such bad NYC living, especially since there’s a front porch involved.
