Estate-Condition Brownstone With Lovely Detail in Bed Stuy Asks $1.835 Million

by

This estate-condition Italianate brownstone in Bed Stuy needs some work, but with a load of original detail and stately proportions, it has the makings of quite a grand residence. It’s at 33 Monroe Street, on a particularly nice block near the Clinton Hill border.

The house is a generous 20.5 feet wide and four stories high, counting the garden floor. There are crown and wall moldings, marble mantels, original woodwork including stately arched doorways, and parquet floors — and much of it looks to be in quite good shape.

A two-family that hasn’t changed hands in more than 30 years, it’s configured as a 4.5-bedroom, two-bath triplex over a one-bedroom garden rental.

The extent of work needed is unclear. The photos show only a pair of upstairs bedrooms and the parlor floor — which looks as if it may have undergone a partial renovation.

It seems a safe bet that kitchens and bathrooms need upgrading; the mechanicals likely need updating as well. That facade looks to be in remarkably good shape, though.

Listed by John Harrison and Paul Johansen of Core, the house is asking $1.835 million. Weighing the potential loveliness of the house against the work needed, does that seem on target? How do you like the look of it?
