This 19th-century Crown Heights frame house is spacious, well maintained and appears to be in move-in shape. At 994 Bergen Street, it is a two-family now being used as a single residence, on an extra-deep lot, with an 88-foot garden.
There are some original details intact, including marble mantels, plaster medallions, the banister, stained glass and crown moldings. The floors aren’t original, sadly.
It’s laid out with three bedrooms on the top floor (one quite small and without a closet) and two full floors of living space below. The house has two full baths, one on the top floor (en suite to the master bedroom) and the other on the garden level, next to the kitchen.
The kitchen is large, open and attractive, with acres of off-white cabinetry, a jumbo refrigerator, black granite counters and blue tile backsplash. It opens to the back yard, which as mentioned is near runway length, with a paved patio and a shed in the rear.
Upgrades include new double-paned windows, a re-tarred roof, a new hot water heater and HVAC heating/cooling systems in each room. A new owner may wish to upgrade the facade, which appears to be vinyl. The cornice appears to be original.
Listed by Douglas Elliman brokers Nadia Bartolucci, Rachel Altschuler and Andrea Ryder, the house is asking $1.75 million. Do you think that sounds about right? How do you like the place?
