A Historic Braddock 5BR, 2.5BA on 2 lots on a celebrated street where every single dwelling except it is BRAND NEW as a large part of the Mon Valley Initiative’s Holland Ave. Homes project. Rental-Ready property is right off Braddock Avenue & was the last proud dwelling standing on the street before they just built all new homes (so new Google Earth doesn’t even show them .. have a good look at all the photos in the reel!).
Previous owner was UPMC from 1997-2016 (of these + other parcels on the street!). Fire escape built by them when they used it a somewhat of a halfway house until then. So you know it’s up to code, particularly for Section 8. 2-level+ deck wraps around & doubles as a cover for rear patio; walk-out basement, separate entrances. Also has a massive covered front porch whose stone beams match the face of the house & the wall that wraps the property around the corner (there was a 2br/1BA on the 2nd lot that was torn it down for parking 😊)!
- 5 bedrooms
- 2½ bathrooms
- can very easily create more parking in rear; yard is fenced!
- many new or brand new components; it’s been recarpeted, might need to simply paint (just vacated 02/2021)
- central air
Rent to $1,475/month Market *or* Sec.8 ($1,670 if LL pays utilities); CAP can reach over 20%:
Last landlord is a tax collector for the borough, giving further validation to the solidity of this property.
These beauties are at the next block:
The Avenue Apartments
The view, proximities (Waterfront, Kennywood, Swissvale, etc.), walkability, transit, redevelopment of the area, the return$, & the uniqueness of the property on its street makes this a rare deal for sure!
