A Dutch Colonial in Hempstead is on the market for $649,000.
The 1,765-square-foot home on Hilbert Street has three bedrooms and 1½ bathrooms.
"The home exudes this warmth and pride in ownership," said listing agent Alexa Nicolette of Signature Premier Properties. "It’s just extremely well maintained and loved, so you feel that warmth really the moment you walk in the door."
Built in the 1920s, the home has retained its "Old-World charm," Nicolette said; but renovations done over the past decade have modernized the property. Among completed projects is an updated kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances.
"It’s got a really nice flow from the formal dining room into the kitchen, but also into the living spaces," Nicolette said. "The main floor, you can really be a part of everything when you’re entertaining — you’re not isolated from one room to the next."
Also on the first floor are an office, sunroom and wood-burning fireplace. All three bedrooms are on the second floor. A third-story walk-up attic is currently used for storage, but could be converted for alternative use, Nicolette said.
"It’s got a whimsy to it," she said of the attic.
The home has a detached two-car garage and a full basement downstairs. The house is heated by oil; the stove, oven and dryer are fueled by natural gas.
Outside, there are a fenced-in backyard and in-ground sprinkler system; but the greenery is not limited to the back of the house.
"There’s a lot of beautiful tree cover out front, which creates a lot of privacy on that street, which is really nice," Nicolette said. "You have this feeling of isolation, while you’re not necessarily completely set back but it does have a really secluded and private feel."
The address falls within the Hempstead Union Free School District. Annual taxes total $20,271.
