A four-story brownstone in Bed Stuy looks to be well preserved and contains some fine woodwork, especially the window and door trim topped with high crowns and incised patterns. The building is configured as two floor-through apartments above an owner’s duplex.
Among the notable details, the entry and staircase glow with restored woodwork, parquet floors are in place throughout the main rooms, and wainscoting is apparent in the hallways, on the staircase, and in the garden-level living room. That room and the stairwell also have exposed brick that appears to have been treated with a shiny finish, bringing out the colors of the brick.
The owner’s duplex has bedrooms and closets on the parlor level along with a large bathroom. The latter has a ’90s brutalist style that is not unattractive, with stone tile walls and mosaic tile accents as well as a large original window with all the Victorian trimmings.
The garden floor has been opened up and contains a living room, dining area and kitchen, as well as a bathroom and laundry room. The kitchen is visible from afar and has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, according to the listing, along with updated cabinetry that, if not the most high design in its finish, looks to be in good shape.
The kitchens and baths in the upstairs rentals are new but not pictured. The exterior appears to be in fine shape too, with a dogleg stoop, elaborate entry with double doors and recently restored brownstone, according to the listing.
569 Madison Street is a circa 1890s brownstone, based on historic maps. An 1899 ad for the house when it was being resold described it as a “brown stone” with a “V front” and said it was “handsomely decorated and frescoed.”
The three-family property was in the same hands since 1972, but following the death of the owner, was purchased from heirs in a series of small transactions amounting to about $600,000 since 2016 by Earl R. Davis of American Regional Capital LLC, public records show.
Listed by Ban Leow, Howard Ramlal and Robert L. Thony of Halstead, it’s asking $2.199 million. What do you think of it?
