Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but this three-family four-story Brick and Brownstone Townhouse in Bedford Stuyvesant is actually quite stunning. It’s renovated, well maintained, and it offers a fantastic mix of old world charm and modern amenities. This home is located in the heart of Bedford Stuyvesant among the most popular cafes and bars in the area along Lewis Ave., Tompkins Ave. and Malcolm X Boulevard. While it is a three family home, it could easily be used as a single family, or, a two family double duplex or triplex over garden rental.
This beautiful home spans more than 2,800 square feet plus a 700 square foot basement with excellent ceiling height. The current configuration is two income-producing one-bedroom rentals over a 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom owner’s duplex on the parlor and garden levels over a full-height basement. Original details throughout the home are nicely preserved, including ceiling medallions, picture moldings, pocket doors, unique decorative fireplaces on each floor, wood parquet floors, crown molding and beautifully restored entry doors that are 7 feet tall.
The recently renovated owners duplex is the perfect space to entertain and to live with its three outdoor spaces. Efficiency and attention to detail were tenets of the design. Modernize for comfort but select finishes to preserve and meld with the classic nature of the home. The result speaks for itself. Enter on the parlor floor and you’ll be greeted by soaring ceilings and lovely period details. The crown jewel on this floor is the chef’s kitchen with a dramatic 8-ft island and all the appointments a cook would love. From here you might flow onto the deck that leads to the garden. The marble powder room is nicely done and a great convenience for guests.
The Garden level is surprisingly bright and airy and houses three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, both en suite. The primary bedroom includes a walk-in closet designed by California Closets with lots of space to hang clothes, store shoes, sweaters, or whatever you would like. The primary bathroom is gorgeous! It is the perfect place to transition from the work day to a relaxing evening at home. Light a candle and enjoy the multi-mode shower with built-in bench or soak in the claw-foot tub. There is so much storage including the custom vanity.
From the primary bedroom, glass doors offer access to the patio that flows into the garden, with its lush trees and planters ready for you to fill with your favorite blooms. The second bedroom is quite charming with its decorative fire place and its own en suite bathroom. The third bedroom could serve just as well as an office. This level includes laundry and leads to the basement recreation room which has 7 foot ceilings. It’s the perfect canvas should you choose to finish it further. While the radiators fueled by gas heat remain for those cold winter nights, this unit also has central heating and cooling.
The top two floors are occupied and will be delivered vacant, although the tenants are amazing and might be willing to stay if you would like rental income right away. The rentals share a washer and dryer accessible in the hallway.
The Utica Avenue A/C express stop is nearby. From there, you can reach lower Manhattan in about 15 minutes. There is a lot to enjoy in the neighborhood whether you are a tea totaler or you enjoy craft cocktails. Within blocks, you’ll find Saraghina, Peaches, L’Antangoniste, Trad Room, Mama Fox, Beso, Secret Garden, Rita and Maria, Peaches Hot House, Chez Oskar, Lunatico and so much more.
