Transition Acquisitions has exclusively listed its latest single-family renovation at 713 Madison Street. This Bedford Stuyvesant townhouse has been carefully restored, retaining historic detailing with modern upgrades throughout. The cozy home spans over three stories. The first floor, with direct access onto a new outdoor patio, features two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the second floor, a brand new kitchen opens up into the renovated living room. The focal point of the living room is the home’s historic fireplace. A door from the kitchen leads out to a newly-constructed deck that looks over the sizable backyard. The third floor features a generous master bedroom, where the original fireplace design was replicated and a new one was installed, as well as a master bathroom. The final touch of the renovation is a third-story skylight which looks down over the staircase and brings natural light into the entire house. View the finished interior after the jump.

713 Madison Street is located in the growing, historic neighborhood of Bed Stuy. The home is only one half block from a park and playground, accessed by the A, C, and J subway lines, and a short walking distance from popular restaurants such as Peaches and Saraghina. The asking price is $695,000.

There is an open house this Sunday August 25th, 1pm to 4pm.

We all try so hard to live a healthy, natural lifestyle without all of those nasty additives and chemicals, but sometimes it can be insanely hard. With busy schedules, demanding jobs, or just lack of convenience, you skip the tempeh go right back to eating chips and frozen dinners. And even if you finally find the organic products that you want, and you have to haul them back home, which is zero fun.


Are you visiting mom this weekend and panicking to find a gift for Mother’s Day? Did you forget your wife is also the mother of your children? (Don’t worry, we forgot, too.) Damage control; weigh your options. You’ve given her tons of flowers before and it reeks of desperation. If you really want to underwhelm her, you could spend $5.95 on a last-minute card from the Target at Atlantic Center. Maybe this year you should take advantage of this wonderful borough you live in and get her something handmade in Brooklyn. But what and where?
