First Impressions of Tottenville’s 441 Sleight Avenue
We’re not out of the woods yet- and we don’t want to be! In the quaint family neighborhood of Tottenville, 441 Sleight Avenue is a charming and traditional home located on a quiet street. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this spacious one family detached colonial sits on an extra wide lot, bordered by a picket fence for that country feel in New York.
First, this home’s defining feature may well be the cottage-like white columns and railings of the front porch, in stark contrast with the antique wood shingle front. Around the side yard is a cobblestone retaining wall. Parking is plentiful and is available on street. This property even offers potential for an additional home, since the side yard is legally deeded and plumbed to be its own property!
Take a Closer Look: 441 Sleight Avenue
The home’s first floor opens to a foyer with living room to the right and staircase and kitchen in front. This interior exudes the same old-world charm you’re greeted with outside. Wood columns and finishings throughout create a sense of warmth. Additionally, windows are fitted with a lattice detail and kitchen cabinets are all a very traditional wood shaker style, paired with white appliances. Access to the large, unfinished basement is located off the kitchen.
Next, the adjoining living room features a fine highlight of this home- a cobblestone wood burning fireplace Norman Rockwell would love. A dining room connects the living and family rooms for a more old fashioned home layout, great for entertaining. A 3/4 bath with standup shower is also found on this level.
Following that, the family room offers stunning picture windows with panoramic outdoor views. Access the parklike yard through a door off the family room. This large side lot has been deeded and sewered separately- keep it to enjoy, or build another home here!
Upstairs, find all three bedrooms and the full bath. A generous-sized master bedroom has a large picture window, and all bedrooms feature ceiling fans. The two remaining bedrooms are connected by a large walk through closet.
Aside from the home tour, there are many interesting points about 441 Sleight Avenue. A new roof in 2011 gives one huge bonus you won’t have to worry about! It was even used as a movie set for a film starring John Turturro!
