We’re sure if you’ve spent any time in Bay Ridge, particularly on Ovington Avenue, you’ve noted this remarkable looking house at No. 457. And now it’s for sale.
There are no interior photos in the listing, unfortunately, but lots of information. First, it was built in the early 20th century by local developer Arthur Constant as his own house. Second, it’s chock full of original details such as pocket doors, mantels, stained glass, built-ins, pier mirrors, and even chandeliers and sconces, according to the writeup. There is a sunroom and a conservatory, and the mechanicals have been updated.
The floor plan shows what to us looks like a top-floor rental over a garden floor owner’s duplex, but the house is currently being used as an owner’s duplex over a garden rental. It will need restoration, according to the listing. What do you think of it and the ask of $1,650,000?
