Here’s a Bed Stuy brownstone with some fetching period details including impressive woodwork, parquet floors, stone mantels and overmantel mirrors.
In addition to those nice details the house at 385A Putnam Avenue does come with an SRO classification. The listing doesn’t specify if the property comes either with tenants or with a certificate of non-harassment. While records from HPD indicate that it has seven units, the DOF lists it as a two-family, as does the listing. There’s no floor plan but according to the listing it is set up with a two-bedroom, 1.5-bath duplex and a three-bedroom, two-bath unit.
The images included seem to depict the garden floor, parlor floor, and a room on the third floor. They show an impressive amount of original material that looks to be in good shape. The intricately detailed window and door surrounds are all in keeping with the circa 1882 era of the Neo-Grec-style house. The dining room on the garden level boasts wainscoting and shutters in addition to a stone mantel with mirror above.
The kitchen pictured is fairly standard with recessed lighting, wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances and looks to be in good condition. There’s a glimpse to a laundry room beyond. The one bathroom depicted also looks to be in fine shape.
There’s a rear garden that looks like it has potential for someone looking to tackle an outdoor project.
The house last changed hands in 1986 and it is now on the market as an “as is” cash-only sale. It’s listed by Eli Haliva of Douglas Elliman for $999,000. What do you think?
