Here’s an opportunity to buy a mews house on much-coveted Verandah Place, the quaint, oft-Instagrammed, and generally beloved row of 19th-century houses that faces Cobble Hill Park. This one is No. 20, a three-story dating to the late 1850s that’s currently set up as double duplex.
It’s hard to get a full picture of this one, with limited photos and no floor plan. It’s only 30 feet deep, but it’s 24 feet wide, so there’s a decent amount of space — 2,300 square feet, according to PropertyShark.
Most likely a buyer at this price point is going to want to make a single-family residence out of it, which is going to mean some refiguring, and work to be done.
As it stands, there are a pair of duplexes, one of which presumably incorporates the English basement. There’s a wooden deck in the rear with steps down to the garden, and “many original details,” according to the listing, including a pair of working fireplaces and exposed wooden ceiling beams.
Listed by Andrew Friedman of Halstead, the house is asking $4.95 million. A hefty price, considering the size and the potential work needed, but as noted, it’s a coveted address. What do you think?
