When 194 MacDonough Street was built, it was one of the fanciest row houses in Stuyvesant Heights. Now it looks like it still has most of those original details, at least on the parlor floor, but will take a lot of work to restore.
Much of the parlor floor seems to be covered in paneling, which probably means extensive plaster restoration will be needed, going by the photos. Still, the staircase, wood work, and wood mantels with Minton-style tiles are all extraordinary.
An LLC bought it for $760,000 from an estate in December. Now the new ask is $1,775,000. Think they will get it?
(By the way, the previous owner shared a name with the judge who owned the Slave Theater, but it is not the same man.)
