Custom Ranch Offers Space, Charm, and Quality!

140 Cardinal Ave, Albany, NY 12209

$350,000 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | 2,300 Square Feet

The builder of this stunning home customized it for his own gracious living. For a building of this time, you’ll be surprised with the large size of the closets and the fact that the majority are cedar-lined and have lighting. You’ll also be delighted to see that it was also built with ceiling lights in all the bedrooms and light switches at every practical location. And this is just the start!

Outside you’ll find character and quality with a brick house and garage, slate roof, and a charming front porch and exterior back patio with low-maintenance yard. The long, wide driveway can park over ten cars, including the two-car detached garage with garage door openers.  Take a drive around and you’ll see you’re just minutes to the Jewish Community Center, shopping, schools, bus line, major highways, more!

As you step inside, you’ll be greeted with 9.5’ ceilings and a grand foyer with dual closets and bench. To the left, you’ll see a spacious living room with fireplace (never used by current owners), and attached Florida room. The formal dining room is next and brings in plenty of natural light through the gorgeous oversized windows.

The eat-in kitchen was just updated in 2016 with new cabinets including deep storage drawers, trash/recycling receptacle, and other custom features. The new cabinets are enhanced with granite counters, under-cabinet lighting and stainless steel appliances.

Off the kitchen is the hallway to four spacious bedrooms, a full bathroom, large linen closet and door to an unfinished attic with high ceilings, just perfect for a future master suite.

The finished basement is a huge bonus of this home, as it was just refreshed and could make a great in-law apartment. It features a large great room including a spacious living area, built-in bar and beautiful new kitchen.  There is also an office with closet and full bathroom with shower. The best feature of this basement is the new kitchen that mimics that of the first-floor kitchen, but also has a large island with stool seating. This is also the area you’ll find the included washer and dryer.

Off the finished area of the basement, you’ll find a large workshop perfect for any project that comes to task.  This area also houses the three-zone boiler (installed 2007), new hot water tank (2016), and central air conditioning for the main house (2002). The finished area of the basement has a separate newer air conditioning system. Another special feature of this home is the updated plumbing and the reverse-return hot water line which ensures nearly instant hot water at any faucet. The main water line was also replaced in 2005 and the sewer line has a backflow preventer installed.

It truly has all been thought of for you. There is nothing left to do but move-in and unpack your bags.  “Welcome home!”
