This Queen Anne house at 254 Gates Avenue is absolutely stunning. Built in 1885 and designed by the Parfitt Brothers, it features mucho stained glass, a wood-burning fireplace and five more decorative mantles, charming tile and plasterwork, and beautifully renovated kitchens and baths. It is located in Bed Stuy close to the Clinton Hill border, and appears to be in use as a three family, although it is legally a four, according to PropertyShark. In May, it was a Building of the Day. We would like to move right in, as soon as we can gather the $2,200,000 required. If it goes for ask, it will set a record in Bed Stuy. What are the chances?
