Completely Renovated, Energy Efficient 2Bed/2Bath Townhome-Style Apartment Less Than 1 Mile to Downtown Northampton
Come live in a beautiful, completely renovated townhome-style apartment featuring two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom (roommate compatible!), within walking distance of downtown Northampton! Located along the lovely South Street corridor, with some of the oldest and most charming buildings in town, this first floor single-level-living apartment is newly constructed within the original 1884 house at the front of the property (there are 8 units total on the property, including 3 apartments in the original house and 5 new construction townhomes behind).
Features include gorgeous regionally-grown American White Ash hardwood floors, white shaker-style cabinets, dark granite countertops, stainless steel Energy Star appliances (including flat top electric stove and dishwasher!) and in-unit laundry. Apartment has a nice sized front porch with covered bicycle storage and a sitting area, as well as air conditioning and semi-private backyard with patio. This unit has the largest backyard in the complex, so lots of outdoor space!
This small apartment (830 sf) with an open floor plan has a sweet, open kitchen and peninsula bar (easily fits 3 stools!) and good natural light. Sweet, small and cozy living room with bay window. There is a small dining area and/or mud room area at the front door. Two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, make this unit ideal for roommates or others in need of more than one full bathroom. The master bathroom has a tub/shower with an extra deep bathing well and a curved shower rod for a generous showering space. The other bathroom has a 38” walk-in shower. Apartment also features good sized closets and in-unit Energy Star clothes washer and dryer. Master bedroom fits up to a king sized bed and has two 2’-3’ wide closets. The other bedroom has a larger closet with a large extra storage space at the back that runs beneath the stairs to the upstairs apartment, and there is a closet at the back door of the unit. Additional dedicated storage space is available in the basement, as well as in backyard storage shed. Open cell spray foam has been installed to provide sound insulation between units, and the units are certified lead safe for children. While not ADA compliant (unit is accessed via several steps with a handrail), this apartment is located entirely on the first floor of the building, and the master bathroom has a walk-in shower and is designed to ADA standards.
Energy efficiency features include closed cell spray foam insulation, double-paned and Energy Star windows, programmable thermostats, and heat and air conditioning provided by efficient electric mini-split heat pumps.
Like to garden and spend time outside? The apartment has a dedicated gardening bed at the front porch and in the backyard. In the backyard, a granite-like textured concrete patio with privacy screening leads to shared open space with community garden boxes (dedicated garden planters for each apartment). At the back of the property is a small shared open space with a play structure. Downtown is a just a short walk, or head for the bike path, with an entrance just half a mile away. The development is also a stone’s throw from the Meadows Conservation Area, one of the South Street neighborhood’s most prized assets, which also connects to the Oxbow and the Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary.
Rent is $2,100/month. Apartment has one dedicated parking space, with additional undedicated parking spaces available onsite as well as on the street immediately out front. Rent includes snow removal, mowing, water & sewer, and trash/recycling/compost collection by the Pedal People. Tenants pay electricity (heat, AC and hot water). Available December 1st, though this could be negotiable…
