This Bed Stuy brownstone has charm and a bounty of original detail in fine shape — including an original icebox in an upstairs hallway. It’s at 566 Jefferson Avenue in Stuy Heights, right off Lewis Avenue.
It could be called move-in ready, going by the photos, though the current layout isn’t going to work for everyone. It’s got an upper rental over a duplex that’s got a lot of living space but only one proper bedroom.
Making it a one-family with a triple parlor would be one obvious way to go, and a favorable one for those who can live without the rental income.
As noted, details are plentiful, including four mantels, parquet floors, wainscoting, built-in cabinetry, pocket doors, crown moldings, plaster medallion and arched stained glass window transoms.
Much of the mahogany woodwork has been refinished, and the condition, in general, looks very good. The bathrooms have been renovated, including the pictured one, with its extensive marble tiling and original clawfoot tub, and there’s updated plumbing and electric and a newly sealed and painted roof.
The kitchens are wild cards — presumably, they’ve been updated along with the rest of the house, but neither is pictured. The backyard is, and it’s a bit of an odd duck, with stray bushes arranged in a seemingly random pattern.
Listed by Ban Leow and Joseph Martinez of Halstead, the house is asking $1.625 million. What do you make of it?
