Here’s a renovated two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a Queen Anne house in Bay Ridge that has an updated kitchen, some original moldings and room for an office in the turret. It’s at 352 76th Street in Bay Ridge and was likely built sometime between 1893 and 1905, historic maps show.
The recently renovated kitchen has new Shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a stone countertop. In the photos, there’s a small IKEA outdoor cafe table in the kitchen, but the floor plan says it’s 14 feet wide so there’s room for more.
The floors are all hardwood, by appearances, and the doors and windows have historic details like corner blocks, fluting, six-panel doors and recessed panel wainscoting. The room inside the turret and one bedroom have crown molding, and both bedrooms have original baseboards. The 900-square-foot space has plenty of closet space, including a pantry, a walk-in closet, two small closets in a pass-through between the two bedrooms and another in the other bedroom. The bathroom isn’t pictured in this listing, but in a previous listing, it has white tile walls and a shower with rain glass doors.
The building itself is a classic Queen Anne style with a stone-clad wall and columns on the front porch, vinyl siding on the front up to the side gable and shingles on the turret. The planted front yard has a cute sculptural niche, and although we can’t identify the figure we want to know the story. It’s also only a half block from the 77th Street R train, which is 14 stops from Lower Manhattan. It’s renting for $2,200 in a listing by Susan Chung for Compass. Is it a good deal for the location?
