226 Fountain Avenue


Seeking a rarely available, 20 foot wide, three-family home with an expansive backyard and some highly coveted, off-street parking? Then whether you are ready to relocate, searching for an investment opportunity, or even a little bit of both, this may very well be your NextHome.

This completely detached legal three-family triplex in the City Line section of East New York, situated on an oversized 40’ x 100’ lot, sports a private driveway that can accommodate at least three cars and a generous backyard space for future renovations. This gated property boasts a generously sized front porch with portico for shade & relaxation and an entry foyer for a proper introduction to the premises. The living spaces exceed more than ~1,000 square feet per floor with a common generous layout on each residential level, finished with hardwood flooring throughout.

Heading from the front at the eastern side of the building to the western rear facade, each and every room is windowed: the master bedroom with eastern exposure, the living room and full bath off the eat-in kitchen, and finally another two bedrooms with western exposure overlooking the backyard. Below the residential levels, discover a full unfinished basement with access to the aforementioned backyard and the mechanical room with two hot water heaters and a boiler, all converted to natural gas. The roof, with skylight and stairwell access, has been refinished ten years ago and elevates residents to provide a rooftop view of the neighborhood.

Transit will delight homeowners and potential renters alike: The Euclid Avenue A/C station is just over four blocks away and the Q8 bus stop is literally around the corner. From shopping to salons, Pitkin Avenue, at the end of your block, will take you to many of your neighborhood options in minutes. And City Line Park, a NYC Parks greenspace with baseball, basketball, handball, running, skate, and playground facilities, is also only four blocks away.

The property will be delivered vacant and is part of the NYC Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) program which typically contributes to a home’s reduced tax level.
