Exterior improvements were performed recently, including some window repair, siding repair, extensive caulking, primer/sealer & 2 coats of latex. Easy to maintain white exterior. One HVAC unit as well as the gas pack, boots and registers were replaced within the last 5/6 years. A Great Feature: This duplex has a highly desirable roofing system, a reverse clamshell shaped Metal roof that drains to one solid 6" copper pipe that flows to a below ground cistern!!! This is a much superior system to no gutters, or gutters draining water to the earth surrounding the home, yard and foundation. This premium standing seam metal roof was recently refinished and sealed.
Another premium aspect: This area of Pitt Street is about the highest ground elevation on the peninsula, and this property has a base elevation is 13.0 feet, as determined by engineering and flood elevation consultants, therefore reducing flood insurance costs. Elevation certificate updated in October 2018.
Being on a lot higher then most nearby homes, this property did not flood during the last few years storms, and a spacious crawl space offers superior ventilation and reduced moisture.
FEMA approved flood vents are being installed late June 2019 on two sides, further increasing ventilation, and will result in additional reduced costs for flood insurance.
The interior is in classic college rental condition, could be kept as is or the kitchens and bathrooms could be upgraded, allowing a substantial increase in rent and cash flow, and immediately increasing the value of the properly.
The interior floor plans work well, with one BR at the front of the house and 2 others at the rear, with the common area separating them. Tenants like this. There are numerous closets in the units, extra storage areas on both floors and a shed in the rear yard.
There is a laundry area for the first floor (A) at the rear of the home, and an in suite laundry area for the second floor (B).
An option on the first floor could be to informally rent out the front, with 1 BR, Kitchen, Bathroom and Living area, and use the
back suite with it's own entrance, 2 BR's, and bathroom (no kitchen) kept for personal use. This works with the Laundry facilities at rear of building. Both units have large Piazzas (Porches) for outdoor leisure time and space, and the second floor Piazza is very nice, running 7 Columns in length from front to back, and face South, exposed to the refreshing afternoon Sea Breezes. Property is safely located within the Cof C Protection and Security area, with nighttime patrol.
