The townhouse is semi-detached, getting light from three exposures. 


All those L train shenanigans have put lots of areas back on the table for some buyers, and Ridgewood, Queens is one of them. If you're eyeing the neighborhood and want space and rental income, check out 16-16 Norman St. Listed for $1,399,000, the four bedroom, four bath has a newly renovated interior and preserved brick facade. 

The 1910 building has 3,000 square feet of living space and is located on a 27-foot-by-100-foot lot. It's semi-detached and gets light from eastern, southern, and western exposures. Got a car? There's a private driveway, too. 

Upgrades include new, oversized casement windows, updated electric, a new roof, and split A/C units throughout. 

The townhouse has an owner's duplex, which features high ceilings, an open plan living, and dining room area. 

The custom kitchen has marble countertops, a breakfast nook and island. A sliding glass door leads to a private balcony and fenced back yard below. There's also a full bath and washer/dryer on this level. 

Upstairs are three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with master bath, and a small room that could be an office or fourth bedroom. 

This bathroom looks nicely renovated, and appears to have two shower options, rainfall and standard. 

The rental apartment is on the garden level and has a granite kitchen. 




The townhouse is three blocks from the L train at Halsey Street, and dining and shopping options are nearby on Wyckoff and Knickbocker avenues.
