Did you ever think you’d see the day? A stunning, Parfitt Brothers-designed Queen Ann townhouse at 254 Gates Avenue between Franklin and Classon Avenues in Bed Stuy sold for $2.2 million.

According to Streeteasy, the most expensive single-family home sale in the neighborhood was 53 Monroe Street, which sold for $1,240,000 in 2010.
