This four-story limestone and brick Renaissance Revival-style row house is sprawling, with original woodwork among other period notes. Located at 1265 Bergen Street in the Crown Heights Historic District, it’s just over a block from the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
It’s currently configured as two floor-through rentals over an owners duplex. While many of the original details remain intact, the bathrooms and kitchens could use some updates.
There are at least three fretwork screens — two in the parlor-floor entrance, another between the front and middle parlors — as well as some intricate window surrounds, baseboards, shutters, French and pocket doors, parquet floors, original newel posts, millwork moldings, at least three decorative mantels and bay windows.
The kitchen on the garden level is spacious, with a large pantry and loads of cabinet and counter space. The pictured bathrooms are serviceable, but a new owner would most likely want to update.
There’s a washer/dryer for each the two rentals and the duplex, along with video intercom and an ADT security system. The tidy cellar has brick arches.
On the facade, green awnings of a style more typically seen on commercial properties can be found over the main entrance and below the dog-leg stoop. The bracketed yellow cornice is intact and there are some lintels over the front door and between the windows.
The home last changed hands in 2004, when it was purchased for just $610,000. It is 4.5 blocks from the local Kingston-Throop avenues C station. It is across the street from a single-story Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall.
