House of the Day: 737 Quincy Street


This two-family brownstone has a good amount of original detail but needs work. Clearly some renovation has already occurred, but if the mechanicals are new, the listing doesn’t say.

As for the configuration, the listing says it’s set up as a double duplex, but we see it as a top-floor one-bedroom rental over a triplex. Though perhaps the slope of the ceiling in the front on the top floor makes that a challenge. (In case you’re wondering, the fourth floor is hidden from the street, with eyebrow windows in the cornice.)

It’s only 16 feet wide but has 2,800 square feet of space, according to PropertyShark. It’s in the eastern part of the neighborhood between Malcolm X and Patchen near the Gates J stop. Do you think they’ll get their ask of $925,000?
