In the Bedford Historic District, this brick and brownstone Queen Anne at 288 Jefferson Avenue has fabulous cresting on the door hood, bay and roofline, not to mention a pilastered main entrance. In addition to the gorgeous period details, there are also a number of tasteful modern updates in both the owners triplex and two-bedroom garden rental.
Up the stoop of the four-story home’s elegant brick facade is the original main entrance and vestibule doors. The woodwork here, as well as in the shutters, pocket doors, plaster moldings and ceiling medallions on the parlor level, have all been beautifully restored. Built-in coat hooks line the plank-floored foyer leading to the grand central staircase, and the parlor has a lovely pier mirror.
In the rear parlor, the eat-in kitchen has parquet floors and looks out on the garden. The room is rich with millwork and boasts modern cabinetry and a tiled backsplash in an arched nook with white moldings.
The only pictured bathroom is from the second story of the owners triplex and is thoroughly modern, with a dual vanity and open stand-up shower. The triplex also has laundry, skylights and five mantels.
Below, in the two-bedroom, single-bath garden apartment, there are pocket shutters, a decorative fireplace, wainscoting, laundry, and exclusive access to the picture perfect backyard, which appears freshly landscaped with new gravel and a picket fence. A finished basement has a tile floor and striking arched brick support wall.
The home was built circa 1883 by George H. Stone, according to the designation report, and designed by architect G.A Schellenger, according to the listing.
Located 5.5 blocks from the Nostrand Avenue A and C station, the home last traded to an LLC in 2016 for $1.905 million.
