Homebuyer’s must-see in Canarsie

If you’re ready for a new home, our House of the Week is ready — move-in ready — for you.

It’s a sun-drenched, detached home on East 96th Street in Canarsie, nicely renovated inside, with a large backyard that gives it a suburban feel.

For thousands of years the Algonquin Indians inhabited Canarsie, a sprawling, tree-lined area on the eastern edge of the borough, snuggled against Paerdegat Basin, Jamaica Bay, and Fresh Creek Basin, but these days the residential neighborhood is a big hit with smart buyers looking for prime real estate in a cozy corner of Brooklyn. The friendly district, where the local shopkeeper likely knows customers by name, offers more outdoor space than other city neighborhoods. Our designated domain — listed at $599,000 — is appointed with awesome features, including:

• Four bedrooms

• Two-bathrooms

• Large closets

• New floors throughout

• Newly renovated kitchen

• Freshly painted

• New roof

• New hot water heater

Our featured property is within walking distance of shopping, and express bus service to Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan, and close to lots of recreational opportunities, including Canarsie Pier, part of Gateway National Recreation Area, which has been a fishing hotspot for more than 300 years, and continues to be a favorite of locals for catching bluefish and fluke. Protected shoreline and salt marshes surround the dock, making it an ideal spot for picnicking and summer strolls.

There’s also Seaview Park; a 134-acre green space, has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation and includes new skateboarding areas, community picnic areas, baseball fields, basketball courts and an early childhood playground. To sum it up, our House of the Week is a Brooklyn gem situated in an enduring neighborhood, and a must-see for insightful buyers looking to experience the relaxing life in a tranquil part of the big city. It can be your new home, if you make the call today.
