974 – 976 Palm Terrace
It is quite rare for a two on a lot property to come available in the Washington Square Landmark District. Sited on a large 9,257 square foot parcel, 974 Palm Terrace is a legal duplex with two stand-alone single-family homes. 974 Palm Terrace is the front home with just under 1,200 square feet living space and 976 Palm Terrace is the rear home with just under 950 square feet living space. There is also a two-car detached garage and carport.
The parcel was originally developed in 1890 with the construction of the rear unit. The Bungalow style home includes two bedrooms and one bathroom with a living room, dining area, and kitchen. There is also a separate laundry and quaint front porch. The space also offers a front yard and small backyard along with a parking space and covered carport. Though the fireplace in the living room is decorative only, it does showcase the character of an 1890’s home.
Around 1956, the lot was further developed with the addition of a two-car garage and front unit. The traditional style home includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, dining area, laundry room, and kitchen. The space was renovated less than a decade ago and has been beautifully maintained and cared for. The front home also offers a lovely rear courtyard and landscaped front yard.
The current owner has done a wonderful job improving the property during his tenure with the addition of central air conditioning and heat to the front unit, newer water heaters to both units, new dishwashers in both units, foundation support to the rear unit, and various new fixtures throughout. The result is an extremely nice property for a fortunate buyer.
