Property Description

185 E. Brookside Ave in Firestone Park is a 4 bedroom home w/1453 sqft., not including the 25x12 finished attic (4th bed) and is the type of home that those in the know recognize as an "engineer's home." One where every inch is typically well thought out, meticulously placed, and maintenance and updates are done with the highest quality of craftsmanship and most enduring pride of workmanship. Having an eye for detail is a trait not regarded with the type of widespread adoration it deserves. But doing things right, with quality materials and dignity is as important a part of being a homeowner as paying the mortgage is. It strengthens your very core, it adds value to you and it creates equity in the things you hold dear or that hold your wealth potential, it encourages free thinking and breeds longevity. No creaking floors or outlets hanging haphazardly from their receptacles, no small leaks, loose wires, broken handles or other signs of inefficiency or lack of self worth. The home and garage have been refitted with LED fixtures and bulbs, outlets replaced & walls re-finished. The covered front porch has been carefully rebuilt, the back deck partially rebuilt, the basement has been fully waterproofed & the basement steps re-built. The siding and 3 tab, 30 yr roof were new in '07, the Carrier furnace and central air units were new in 2019, and the kitchen has been recently overhauled. Read photo captions for more and ask your Realtor for the complete list of updates.
