Bed Stuy Brownstone With Sleek Kitchen Reno, Original Details Asks $1.85 Million

Here’s a Bed Stuy brownstone that’s newly renovated — and not by flippers. Some care and expense went into updating this one, a late 19th century Romanesque Revival that sits at 611 Macon Street, between Malcolm X Boulevard and Patchen Avenue.

Twenty feet wide, it’s a two-family, with a one-bedroom rental on the garden level and a three-bedroom duplex above.

The duplex has a fetching parlor floor, with pocket doors, inlaid parquet floor, crown moldings, arched stained-glass window transoms, and a decorative fireplace up front.

In the rear is a sleek and lovely kitchen, with a white Corian countertop running the length of the rear wall, underneath a trio of windows. There’s an island with a polished-concrete top and a Gaggenau cooktop, custom cabinetry and a SubZero refrigerator.

The master bathroom is another looker, with a marble-walled walk-in shower and a double La Cava sink with copper fixtures. There’s a second bath with a restored clawfoot tub, a walk-in closet, and a closeted washer and dryer.

What there’s not is access to the outside. The broker offers an alternate floor plan that opens up a doorway in the kitchen, with a deck on the back. As it stands, the only access to the yard is through the garden apartment, a one-bedroom with a windowless office space and a renovated kitchen and bath. (It’s also got a bedroom painted black, perfect if you have a vampire as a tenant).

The painted brownstone house sold pre-renovation in 2013, when it was a House of the Day and went for $925,000. Now, considerably improved, it’s also considerably pricier: $1.85 million is the ask; Christine Toes Muldoon and Gulnara Yunussova of Compass have the listing. Like it?
