About 8 Putnam Avenue

Yes you CAN have it all...a stunning classic and timeless home in a commuter's dream location on a professionally landscaped nearly half acre of land, with rental income to boot! This is your opportunity to own a neoclassical revival masterpiece, rich in history, last sold 45 years ago! This home's grand construction is apparent as you walk up the 3 solid granite block front steps onto its enormous front porch spanning the width of the home, where you can entertain all of your family and friends at one time, or just sit and enjoy some lemonade while posting photos of your new home on Pinterest or Houzz. This home is exceptional in many respects. While it lives like a gracious 4 bedroom single family home, it is a legal 2 family with a separate 2 bedroom apartment having its own private entrance. Easily recombine or immediately rent either space and use the rent money to offset your mortgage payment or as you like! The home is graced with generously proportioned and perfectly scaled rooms with 9 foot ceilings, oversized sun-filled windows, original fine mill work, moldings and hardware, magnificent fireplace mantels and tile surrounds, and gorgeous original wood floors. Along with the refined elegance and grandeur of yesteryear, this home offers today's amenities, conveniences and comforts. Every inch has been meticulously maintained & is beautifully updated to echo its grand construction. Enjoy the timeless renovated kitchen with granite countertops and island seating, the classic marble and porcelain tiled baths and the fresh paint throughout in today's color palettes. Recent mechanical and structural updates include a new roof, rebuilt Yankee gutters, re-pointed corbelled chimneys, new basement steam pipes, repointed stone foundations, and new electrical panels. Its location is extraordinary as well. You have the privacy of a nearly half acre bounded by rock walls, majestic evergreens and stunning flowering trees and shrubs, allowing glorious outside living and entertaining spaces, all just a short walk to METRONORTH for an easy 70 minute commute to NYC and an even shorter one to the Putnam Trailway bike path! Next to Danbury, Conn., border and one train stop over the Westchester border, its convenient location provides quick access to shopping and highways! There are many parks, lakes, golf courses and nature trails in the immediate area. Need more than its 3700 sq. ft. of living space or want additional rental income? Convert the alcove space above the garage to a second rental apartment, a professional office or a studio! Municipal water, sewer. 2022 taxes $10,032 with Basic Star Discount.
