About this property
Seize this rare opportunity to reimagine a pristine southern facing corner Italianate brick row house, preserved in amber, located in the Bedford Stuyvesant Historic District. This distinct home has remained in the loving care of one family for many decades. 267 Macon is a one-of-kind corner brock rowhouse with three exposures including an iconic two-bay oriel facing Throop. Positioned across the street from Our Lady of Victory Parish, 267 Macon instantly transports you to a smaller scale, slower-paced New York, where home, block, and neighborhood were the gravitational centers of your social orbit. Ideally configured as an owner's triplex with a garden rental, 267 was built as a 4 story 20-foot-wide beauty in 1872 for Rodolphus Johnson - James Rhine. Designed with a round-arch main entryway flanked by paneled pilasters into the parlor floor you will find much of the original details remain: wood shutters, plaster molding, baseboards, detailed doorknobs accompanied by a set of pocket doors and original French doors. The upper floors continue the preservationist theme and feature two original marble mantels, wood shutters on the front of the property, parquet floors, and a Victorian tiled bathroom. With a hearty appreciation for the architectural past, the right buyer would be able to achieve modernization without erasure, creating the perfect present blending the past and the future. A good renovation team and some personalized design updates would easily promote this home to the prized possession of the block, if not Bed Stuy. Create the triplex of your dreams by reconfiguring the layout to give yourself a grand 4-bedroom 3.5-bathroom owner's unit with a garden 1 bed rental. Enjoy gazing out of your segmental windows overlooking the calming Parish complemented by the lush greenery of a mature tree lined street and rear garden. Create the story book ending this corner trophy piece deserves. Conveniently located by the A express stop on Nostrand Avenue, 267 is centrally located between the heart of Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill. Stone's throw from Peaches, Bed Vyne, BK Waffle House, Doughgirl, Zaca Cafe and odd fox coffee. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone looking to restore a piece of history, solidifying themselves into the prideful position of a historic row house steward.
