To the uninitiated, Sheepshead Bay may feel more suburban than brownstone Brooklyn, but here you can still find early 20th century houses like this one for under a million. The single-family semi-detached row house has curb appeal, an abundance of windows on three sides, and a garage.
The facade is simple and modern, in keeping with its era, with large rectangular windows and fancy red patterned brickwork. Beyond the stoop is a sunroom and a large combination living room/dining room with attractive parquet floors. It looks like someone removed a wall between the rooms, but a buyer could reinstate it without too much trouble, perhaps with a large opening or French doors.
The kitchen looks to be in good condition, with very decent-looking cabinets, countertops and appliances. Upstairs are three bedrooms, four closets and a full bathroom, which is not pictured. The bedrooms look well kept also, with attractive original floors, picture rail moldings, and original baseboards and other woodwork.
Laundry, mechanicals and a toilet are located in the basement, which the listing says is semi-finished. There is also a small backyard and a shared driveway. The house was built around 1924, based on when other houses appeared along the block.
Sheepshead Bay is known for its Russian and Chinese communities, proximity to the beach, Uzbek restaurants and Roll-N-Roaster. There’s a bit of a Chinatown on Avenue U to explore nearby.
Victoria Capozucca and Sal “Cappi” Capozucca of Brown Harris Stevens are showing the place, which is asking $799,000. How does it strike you?
