About this property
411 Stuyvesant Avenue (aka 74 Chauncey Street) is the crown jewel of one of the most outstanding rows in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. Currently configured as 4 rental units, this legal 4 family property with dual entrances is ripe with opportunity. With approximately 4800SF, you can live and invest in the first Historic District in Bedford Stuyvesant (1971). The property also has its own private garage. Replete with many of its original details and with a one-of-a-kind limestone façade, 411 has both great curb appeal and, due to its stately corner location, incredible light throughout the home. Create a duplex with the first floor and the high-ceilinged, windowed, and developable basement space; there is already an internal connection. There is also an internal connection from the first floor to the second floor, which would allow for the creation of a 3-floor house within a house. Both of these options allow the new owner to retain either two or three high income producing rental apartments.
Designed in 1910 by famed New York architect William Debus, and built by Charles Tristchler, the sophisticated details of this corner row house include a richly garlanded oval window above the front door, and splayed window lintels embellished with bas-relief carvings at the side entrance on Chauncey Street. Its limestone facade with paired stoop has delicate entablatures at the roof, modillions, and is decorated with egg and dart moldings. Simple Doric pilasters flank the doorways and adjacent triple windows. The elegant glass doors with delicate ornamental wrought iron grilles enhance the urban quality of the white limestone facade of this handsome residence.
Bedford Stuyvesant has firmly crossed the $4,000,000 threshold in townhouse sales. 411 Stuyvesant represents a rare and unique opportunity in a renowned Historic District known for the preservation of this handsome building stock. The A/C line is a block away from 411. Located on one of Bedford Stuyvesant’s most beautiful streets, lined with turn of the century mansions and greenery, and a short walk to neighborhood hot spots like Saraghina, Mama Fox, Bar LunAtico and Casablanca among the many.
