Located on the top floor of a bow-fronted row house in Bay Ridge, this apartment looks to be well maintained and the three bedrooms offer some flexibility in set up.
The house at 617 Bay Ridge Parkway is one of a row of two-family homes constructed in the early 20th century. The pale brick building has brownstone trim on the lower level, a simple stone lintel with incised ornament above the front door and a bracketed cornice with foliate ornament.
The apartment is set up with the living room and kitchen at the rear and the largest bedroom in the bay at the front of the house. There are wood floors throughout and some original window moldings to be seen. The living room is open to the windowless dining room just beyond. The windowed kitchen is adjacent to the living room and has an L shaped bank of wood cabinets, granite countertops and dishwasher.
There are three bedrooms, each with a closet, but the middle bedroom is lit only by a skylight. It might best be used for a home office — or perhaps it’s an opportunity to create a large dressing room.
A white-tiled bathroom has a wood vanity, vintage tub and another closet.
The Gowanus Expressway is at the end of the block, but it is sunken, which presumably lessens the noise. There’s also subway access, with the 77th Street R train station just a few blocks away.
Listed by Claire McFeely and Jason Knight of Compass, the apartment is asking $2,400 a month. What do you think?
