Here’s a two-story single-family home in Bay Ridge with Spanish neo-Colonial notes and a touch of Arts and Crafts design. Located at 475 82nd Street, it boasts a private two-car garage and driveway.
Despite the listing stating it’s “in need of a thorough renovation,” the early 20th century home appears well preserved in the few available photos, with a number of original details not often found in the neighborhood. It has been in the same family for almost 100 years, according to the listing (property records do not show any other previous owner).
The only part of the interior that’s pictured in the parlor level, which has been lovingly maintained. It boasts parquet floors, crown moldings, wainscoting, a gas burning fireplace in the living room and glass knobbed doors.
There’s a sunroom at the front of the house, and an office in the back next to the kitchen. Upstairs are three bedrooms, with a total of six closets between them and a full bath.
The only other bathroom in the house is a powder room in the basement. There’s also laundry in the basement.
The well-preserved exterior has orange brick, original sunroom window surrounds, and what appears to be a green tile roof supported by brackets.
The block is down the street from the commercial bustle of 5th Avenue and an equidistant five blocks from the 86 Street and 77 Street train stations.
Jeanette C. Colegrove at Brown Harris Stevens has the listing, which is asking $999,000. What do you think?
