Built in 1901, this adorable four-bedroom home at 11 Fordham Street on idyllic City Island could be a great option for those looking to live farther away from the typical hustle and bustle of NYC. Currently on the market for $679,000, the 1,779-square-foot home comes with a huge backyard, waterfront access, and a private beach. With hardwood floors throughout, it features amazing bones that could easily be modernized. The property has been featured in several commercials and was one of the main locations for the 2006 movie “The Groomsmen,” and it’s ready to step into action again.
The home offers a large eat-in kitchen with a double wall oven, two pantries, a wet bar, and a working fireplace. The pitched ceiling is paneled with wood and has several skylights, while large sliding doors open out onto the backyard.
Next to the kitchen is an open dining area and living room, flooded with light from two sets of bay windows. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and enough room for multiple seating arrangements. The current owners have centered two loveseats around the fireplace and there’s an additional nook with a sofa, chairs and TV console.
The master suite is located on the first floor and it has an ensuite bath and multiple closets. Upstairs you’ll find three additional bedrooms and another full bath.
The house sits on a 5,000-square-foot lot and has a furnished porch and a large backyard with a storage shed. It’s the second house from the water, just steps away from a private beach with fantastic views of Eastchester Bay and the New York City skyline.
