Here’s a four-story Italianate brownstone circa 1879 with a load of detail, down to original door hinges and keys. Designed by Brooklyn architect Amzi Hill, it’s in the Crown Heights North Historic District, at 1347A Pacific Street.
The parlor floor is a winner, graced with crown moldings, plaster detailing, arched door frames, pocket doors with etched glass windows, a stained glass doorway transom, and a marble mantel with a columned mirror.
There’s a kitchen at the rear of the parlor floor, which isn’t pictured. Perhaps that’s an oversight, perhaps the LLC that bought the house in December and spruced it up stopped short of renovating it, and an upgrade is needed.
The two bathrooms pictured don’t look to be newly renovated, though it’s hard to be certain; they’re no great works of architectural splendor in any case, though they look passable enough.
The house is laid out with an upper triplex over a one-bedroom garden rental. The rental’s got the bedroom in a rear extension, leaving a fair amount of living space up front. The triplex has five bedrooms on its upper floors, along with two full baths and a laundry room (which needs actual machines).
There’s a deck in the rear and a backyard; neither one is pictured.
Listed by Jennifer Rhodes of Ideal, the house is asking $1.795 million. It’s hard to say what kind of deal that represents without knowing what work is needed, if any. Like what you see?
