The house is split into two units. This one takes up the second and third floors:

Big selling point

Some duplexes force their inhabitants to share amenities, but this place has plenty to go around. There are four parking spaces, and both units have washers and dryers. Plus, the home is on a 150-foot-deep lot, meaning there’s backyard space for everybody:

Possible deal breaker

The bathrooms in each unit are a little behind the times. If the buyers are looking for modern, spa-type facilities they’ll have to renovate:
