Here’s an attractive Romanesque Revival-style sandstone that mixes a wealth of woodwork with some thoughtful modern updates. Located at 607 Jefferson Street in Bed Stuy, it’s a two-family set up as a triplex over a floor-through apartment.
This isn’t the first time we’ve taken a look at it; it was a House of the Day back in 2019. It’s on the market again with some slightly different staging and a lower price.
Inside, the features of the 1891 house designed by Isaac D. Reynolds & Sons remain as impressive as the first time around. It’s filled with original woodwork, all restored and refinished in a lighter tone than it would have been historically, but the result is details that pop. There’s fretwork, columns, at least one fanciful face carved into a mantel, wainscoting and bead board, just to name a few of the highlights.
As expected, much of that detail is on view in the entry and front parlor. Tucked into the rear parlor is a modern kitchen. The intricately carved wooden mantel is still in place, juxtaposed with sleek white Shaker-style cabinetry, marble countertops and high-end appliances.
While there is plenty of original character downstairs, the upstairs isn’t short of it either. There are five bedrooms on the upper two floors of the triplex, including a master with another impressive mantel. Adjoining is an original passthrough with marble sinks, mirrors and built-ins. The woodsy detail continues into the bathroom with period fixtures and bead board. The other full bathroom depicted goes a bit more modern with a walk-in shower.
There aren’t any images of the garden level rental, but it’s got a living room/bedroom at the front and a kitchen in the rear. There’s entry to the rear garden, which is also accessible via a deck from the parlor level. The landscaping includes planting beds, thick with sculpted shrubbery, along the perimeter.
It was asking $3.225 million when we featured it last year. Listed by Morgan Munsey and Perri DeFino of Compass, now it’s back on the market with a price cut to $2.998 million. What do you think of the property and the new price?
