Here’s a highly livable Bay Ridge single-family that looks to be in move-in shape — digs that might well run upwards of $2 million in Park Slope or Cobble Hill. At 354 86th Street, it’s got a perk you’re unlikely to find in those hoods: an interior garage.
Dating to the early 20th century, the house has an exterior of yellow brick, with angled bay windows, a front porch and a red-tiled roof.
The layout is straightforward: The first floor’s got a foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen; the upstairs holds three bedrooms and a single bath. There are nice inlaid wood floors throughout (which look like they could use refinishing), and what look to be original moldings.
The “partially finished” basement holds a fourth bedroom that looks to be well above grade, a laundry room, and a powder room. Also down here is the aforementioned interior garage, which opens to the rear. You could use it for some other purpose (as the current owners have done) and park in the rear driveway, which holds two cars.
The kitchen is in decent shape but no great object of beauty; an upgrade would be a big plus. The sole bathroom’s not pictured; perhaps it could use one as well.
There’s a small deck in the rear, but with the rear driveway there’s no backyard.
Listed by Brown Harris Stevens brokers Sandra Balan and Samantha Pinkowitz, the house is asking $899,000. What’s your take on it?
