This Bay Ridge row house at 343 79th Street retains some of its original details, and has been well-kept and upgraded. The early 20th century brick house is small and, given its size, may be a bit expensive for the neighborhood.
From the street the house is attractive, with a front porch that runs across the width of the house supported by simple Doric columns. Inside the home retains its original parquet floors, wainscoting and moldings and the first floor has a light and open feel.
The first floor holds the living room, dining room and kitchen. There are only two photos of the interior in the listing, and neither of those show the kitchen. From the floorplan, the kitchen appears to be extremely small and tucked into the corner of the dining room behind the stairs.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a small office or nursery and a full bath. The unfinished basement has a half bath and the laundry.
The house is only 32 feet deep and about 1,200 square feet total. But,it does have that coveted Brooklyn amenity — a garage. The detached garage is accessible via a rear alley.
The home appears well cared for and, according to the listing at least, has not been on the market in over 90 years. It has a mini-split A/C, new mechanicals, roof and electrical. It is on a leafy block lined with similar row houses and is just a couple blocks from the 77th Street R Station.
The home is being offered by Town Residential brokers David Montville and Jimmy Brett at $1.1 million. That is over $900 a square foot. What do you think?
