Here’s a three-family standalone in Sheepshead Bay that needs work, but ought to polish up nicely. It’s a turreted Queen Anne with a fetching exterior at 2117 Voorhies Avenue, within short strolling distance of the neighborhood’s eponymous body of water.
There’s no floorplan, so it’s anyone’s guess how the house is laid out. One unit per floor, perhaps, but there are other possibilities.
There’s a good deal of space, in any case, incorporating seven bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The listing claims 3,971 square feet, though that may include the basement.
Condition isn’t great, though the place isn’t a crumbling wreck either. Suffice it to say that a good deal of work is needed, including kitchen and bath updating.
There’s some nice original detail that’ll reward the effort, though, including stained glass, moldings, wood floors and at least one mantel. There’s also a sweet green vintage stove in the pictures, which may be part of the deal — non-working most likely, but it looks awfully nice.
Other features include a nice second floor sun porch, a driveway and a detached early 20th century concrete-block two-car garage. Manhattan Beach is a quick bike ride away, the Q train is not far off and there’s quick access to the Belt Parkway.
Listed by Joseph Forzano of Ideal Properties, the house is asking $1.65 million. Like the look of it?
