Here’s a Bed Stuy brownstone with a fetching angled bookend facade that offers some original details within. But it still needs work. At 139 Madison Street, it’s currently configured as an SRO, with six studio units spread among the upper floors.
The property comes with a certificate of no harassment, although the SRO designation might make conventional financing challenging.
Photos are few, and reveal a place that looks to be in decent condition. The pictured studios look reasonably nice as SRO units go, and as if they may have been upgraded recently.
The shots of the lower floors reveal wainscoting, a few marble mantels, moldings and the original entrance doors, though the floors are new and the original banister is gone.
There’s a full-sized kitchen on the bottom of the garden level, which could use updating.
So there’s work to be done here, including reconfiguring the space however you see fit, with no shortage of options. The mechanicals have been upgraded, according to the listing.
The house sold in June 2016 from on LLC to another for $1.725 million. Listed by Jamaal Redon of Corcoran, it’s asking just north of that now, $1.795 million. What do you make of it?
