Here’s the sort of house we love but seem to see less and less these days: Seemingly nearly untouched although in estate condition with tons of original detail. We’d like to see more photos, but the listing promises “original period details abound,” including five marble mantels, pocket doors, shutters, elaborately detailed plaster ceilings, and a curved Italianate staircase.
It’s set up as a rental unit over an owner’s duplex. It’s on Stuyvesant Avenue, but not particularly close to the shops or the A/C in Stuy Heights. It’s five blocks from the J train.
It just had a price cut from $1,300,000 to $1,178,300. What do you think of it and the new ask?
