Located on a beautiful tree-lined street in the heart of Queen Village, this stately townhouse has a perfect blend of original details and modern flourishes throughout. Located right across from Weccacoe Playground, 425 Catharine runs from Catharine to Fulton Streets, and boasts a spacious rear yard plus a driveway that allows parking for TWO CARS. Two decorative fireplaces, hardwood floors, and custom wainscoting are just a few of the details that add to the warmth and welcoming air of this house. The entryway/foyer provides hooks for coats and bags, and a convenient first-floor powder room in the hallway. The living and dining room have one of the fireplaces as a focal point, and the large double window at the back of this area provides plentiful natural light. Just off the living room is the recently renovated kitchen (2019), featuring a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, and ample custom-built white and blue cabinetry. A sleek range hood, white subway tiled backsplash and built-in shelving give this space a modern and sophisticated vibe. An original staircase leads to the second level, with light from a hallway window flooding this area. There are two bedrooms here, and a large full marble bathroom with a walk in European Shower, dual vanity, and plenty of storage. The front bedroom contains two closets and two windows overlooking the park and tennis court. The primary bedroom is on the third level. Original roof rafters and warm light characterize this room, which also contains a renovated full bath (2019) and closet space plus space for dresser and/or armoire. The primary bathroom features white subway tiles in the shower area, and black and white patterned tile on the floor. There is also a vanity with two drawers for storage. The fully finished basement is the perfect amount of flexible space and features a cozy fireplace, plenty of room for tv or playroom and a separate stacked washer and dryer area. A new 100 amp electric panel, the furnace and hot water heater were all replaced in 2018 and are located in an unfinished storage room. With a walk score of 98, this home is close proximity to all of Queen Village's thriving independent shops and restaurants. This home is also located in the award winning William Meredith elementary school catchment area.
