Here’s a newly renovated Crown Heights brick standalone that’s pretty nice as flips go, with some restored original moldings and woodwork. It’s at 199 Sullivan Place, on the nabe’s southern end, a 10-minute walk from Prospect Park.
It’s a two-family with an unorthodox floor plan. The owner’s unit incorporates the ground floor, a finished basement and the rear half of the top floor. The master bedroom, which has an en suite bath and a pair of walk-in closets, is on the ground floor, with two additional bedrooms above.
The rental has a kitchen, dining area, living room and two bedrooms packed into a pretty tight space. Needless to say the bedrooms aren’t palatial, and closet space is scant.
The owner’s unit has a large and bright living room with double exposures, a small dining area and an office space. The kitchen is nice; like the smaller one upstairs it’s got rift-cut oak cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances.
There’s a small front garden, but the owner’s unit lacks outdoor space; the rear is occupied by a two-car garage, which some will consider a worthy trade-off. The upstairs unit has a balcony, accessed through one of the bedrooms.
The house changed hands in April 2017 for $905,000; post-renovation it’s asking over a million dollars more: $1.995. Think they’ll get it?
