This spacious two-family brownstone in Bed Stuy is a jaw-dropper that offers a motherlode of intact detail, some of it pretty stunning. Built in 1888 and designed by Axel Hedman, it’s located at 364 Jefferson Avenue, on a block known for its historic splendor.
A looker from the outside, with its dog-leg stoop, elaborate terra-cotta decoration, and curved window bay, it’s a four-story with an owner’s triplex over a garden rental. The triplex is awash in detail, such as inlaid parquet floors, a pier mirror with a ledge, original newel post, stained glass screen and built-in bench — and that’s only in the foyer.
Take the parlor floors, where there’s a fretwork screen with wood column supports that divides the double living room, a second pier mirror and even more stained glass.
Or the large master bedroom on the third floor, where, again, there’s more stained glass, not to mention inlaid parquet floors, a bay-window bench and wood mantel (one of six total in the entire house). There’s also an en suite bath and large walk-in closet.
Another bathroom can be found on the third floor, with a clawfoot tub and black and white floor tiling, along with a second and equally large bedroom. On the fourth floor are three more bedrooms, the two largest connected by a pass-through, and another full bath.
The renovated, comely eat-in kitchen has a large island, along with space for a dining room setup. Another wood mantel is here with mirror, and an original built-in cabinet nearby.
One oddity of the floor plan worth noting: It depicts the garden floor as one big room with a mantel and neither bathroom nor kitchen, although the listing specifies it’s a one-bedroom apartment with office and laundry room.
The property has new plumbing, electric, a recently resurfaced roof and repointed rear exterior, according to the listing. The home, which we previously featured as a House of the Day when it was on the market in 2013, is about seven blocks from the Kingston-Throop C station.
Karen and Kyle Talbott at Corcoran have the listing, which is asking $2.75 million. Do you think it’ll get its ask?
