This spacious three-bedroom apartment takes up two floors in an early 20th century row house in the Bay Ridge Parkway-Doctors’ Row Historic District. The unit at 438 Bay Parkway has wood floors, stained glass, built-ins and a private backyard.
Like many of the houses in the historic district, designated in 2019, this one is set up as a one-family with an office space on the garden level. The Bay Ridge Development Company constructed all of the Renaissance Revival houses, some with touches of Colonial Revival, between 1906 and 1913. This one dates to 1909 and was designed by architect William Flanagan.
The duplex rental is spread out over the main and top floor of the house. On the first level there’s a large living room with parquet floors, built-in bookcases and french doors leading to the dining room. That space has much of its original detail, including wainscoting and a built-in china cabinet with leaded glass doors. At the rear is the eat-in kitchen with wood cabinets, tile counters and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher.
All three bedrooms are upstairs and from the photos at least two of them appear fairly large. The master has a bay window, a wall of storage and en suite bathroom with shower. There’s a total of 2.5 bathrooms in the house and for mid century lovers one of them is pink, complete with pink tiled walls, sink and toothbrush holder.
There aren’t any photos of the rear backyard but the listing indicates that the private space is included in the rental and accessible from the kitchen. Listed by Colette DeSantis and Michele Hass of Coldwell Banker, it’s available for $3,600 a month. What’s your take?
