New York City is known for its diversity, yet it never ceases to amaze us that a suburban-esque neighborhood like Riverdale is a mere 20 minutes away from Lincoln Center or the Met. The affluent Bronx district is coveted for its tree-lined streets and abundance of parks. And in this neighborhood, a renovated seven-bedroom, English Country-style home on a corner lot at 5000 Goodridge Avenue offers the suburban life in proximity to the city, all for $2.7 million.
Inside, the entrance gallery greets you with a windowed living room and a formal dining room on either side. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, decorative ceiling, oak floors, wainscoting and an adjacent sunroom. A neighboring den features a patio, which is a perfect spot for looking out over the lush gardens. The renovated kitchen features granite countertops, a center island with a wood countertop, a large pantry and a desk area. Also on the main level are a formal dining room, a mudroom and a breakfast room along with two maid’s rooms that are currently set up as offices.
The second floor is dedicated to the sleeping quarters, including the sumptuous master suite. This master boasts his and her bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace and a private terrace to survey the impressive landscape. Three additional bedrooms complete the space, with a balcony that is open to the floor below. The full-sized attic has plenty of potential, with 16-foot ceilings and a skylight over the staircase.
The basement features a rec room with a gym, laundry facilities and a guest bedroom. 5000 Goodridge Avenue was built in 1923. The beautiful home is conveniently located near private schools, churches and transportation to the city.
