In the Crown Heights North Historic District at 1349 Pacific Street, this 1878 brownstone is graceful and quite lovely, with plenty of original detail and modern updates. Designed by noted 19th century Brooklyn architect Amzi Hill, it’s got five working fireplaces with fetching carved marble mantels, pocket doors and shutters, inlaid floors, stained glass, moldings and medallions, all in fine condition.
It’s configured as a garden rental with a five-bedroom triplex up top. The triplex features a beauteous parlor floor with the kitchen in the back. It’s a nice-looking kitchen, with a marble island. Cabinet space is minimal, though (or nearly nonexistent minus the wooden hutch). There’s not an abundance of counter space either, though the island is pretty large.
Out back is a deck with a spiral staircase leading to the garden (called “plush” in the listing, though the lawn and gravel depicted in the photo stop somewhere short of that).
The second floor’s got two good-sized and amply lit bedrooms, and the top floor’s got another one of those plus two smaller rooms that’d make good offices or the like. Closet space is minimal: The second-floor bedrooms have none at all.
Although the house is only 16 feet wide, it all makes for a pretty functional layout. The semi-circular center stair on the top levels — a nice and unusual touch — helps.
There’s a washer and dryer in the basement and a hookup on the top floor as well.
Listed by Halstead brokers Sascha Beicken and Yenisy Rodriguez-McCloskey, the house is asking $1.775 million. What do you think it’ll go for? Like the house?
