In a neighborhood full of exceptional architecture, this beautiful 2 family home is a true representation of the classic Brooklyn Brownstone. This duplex over garden level layout is ideal for an owner intending to offset the cost of a mortgage or for an investor to maximize returns from two units with incredibly low taxes. Careful consideration was taken to preserve the charming historic details of this 19th Century brownstone and numerous upgrades have been made to the kitchen, bathrooms, hard wood flooring, building mechanicals, roof, additional electrical outlets, and all new windows. This home preserves much of the original detailing including intricate woodworking around the main entry and doorways, beautiful original vestibule doors, plaster ceiling medallions, bannisters, pocket doors, pocket shutters, inlay parquet floors, and 5 decorative fire places that give gorgeous character and charm throughout. Intelligently configured so that an owner can live in the upper 3 bed plus office, 1.5 bath duplex while collecting rent from the garden level 2 bedroom apartment below.

This 2,040sqft, 17 foot wide home, is set on a 100 foot long lot with a peaceful backyard and spacious deck off the kitchen. The Parlor level is comprised of the living/dining room, large kitchen and half bath with high ceilings and incredible light from over-sized windows. The upper level has two large bedrooms with an internal third bedroom featuring a skylight as well as an office/den/nursery and a full bathroom.

The garden level 2 bed 1 bath unit has a separate entrance and is currently occupied by an excellent tenant paying $2,050/month through the end of May, 2021. A washer/dryer is located on the garden level and can be used by either or both apartments. The basement has a concrete floor and houses the updated building mechanicals.

There are approximately 1,360sqft of unused FAR so this house could be potentially expanded to 3,400sqft. Bedford Stuyvesant is a largely residential neighborhood known for its rich history and rows of architecturally stunning brownstones and limestones in the Romanesque Revival, Renaissance Revival and Queen Anne styles. Mama Fox, Bar LunAtico, Chez Oskar, L'Antagoniste, Bar Cammilo, Saraghina, Peaches Hothouse, Beso are some delicious local favorites. Recent additions include Halsey Market for groceries and a Tribeca Pediatrics.

Central to a number of playgrounds and parks, including Herbert Von King Park, one of the first parks built in Brooklyn, designed by Olmstead & Vaux, who also designed Prospect Park. Convenient to the A, C, J, Z trains. Please note this house is a legal 3 family home used as a 2 family home.
