House of the Day: 418 Stuyvesant Avenue

by
6

This Stuyvesant Avenue limestone by Fulton Park has space and original detail to spare, including oak and mahogany wood work, an original and working gas fireplace, pocket doors, plaster work, built-ins and stained glass.

Unfortunately, the original setup of center hall stair and parlor suite on the ground floor makes division into a multifamily awkward. This two-family solved that problem by inserting a third and separate staircase for the top-floor rental — which could be a plus or a minus, depending on your point of view.

The place is certainly big enough (3,500 square feet, according to the listing) that the loss of a room on the second floor doesn’t seem like a big deal.

What do you think of it and the ask of $1,850,000?
