With so many destinations just a short walk away, the Helderberg neighborhood is one of the best places to live in Albany! Grove Avenue is lined with well-tended homes and 138 Grove is situated just before where the road ends and the Albany Academy fields begin, making it a particularly ideal location.

The enclosed front porch is a great place to hang out and there's plenty of room to store shoes and coats there if desired. Walking into the house, you will immediately notice how the living room and dining room feature wood flooring, multiple windows, and attractive lighting. The wood burning fireplace creates a cozy focal point in the living room. The kitchen was just remodeled and features quartz counters, a deep, granite composite sink, tile backsplash, new appliances and a pantry. Off the kitchen are built-in cabinets for added storage as well as a breakfast nook and an enclosed back porch.

Notice the stained glass accent window on the stairway, as you head to the second floor. There are three bedrooms including a master bedroom which features a paddle fan, two closets and three windows overlooking the front of the house. The back bedroom has its own enclosed porch, which provides a lovely seating area in warmer months. The bathroom is nicely updated and the walk up attic offers great storage and has the potential for additional living space, should you need it.

Throughout the home are thoughtful touches such as paddle fans, window air conditioning units, replacement windows, new light fixtures, contemporary paint colors which contribute to the home's cohesive style and ensures it's a comfortable place to live.

The backyard is fenced and shady and is the perfect setting for hosting a summer barbecue. There is off street parking for several cars in the driveway.

What a lovely combination of old house charm and modern updates!
