This two-story, barrel-fronted brick row house in Windsor Terrace is attractive and in good repair, with six rooms on the top floor that offer a fair amount of flexibility. And it’s well located at 55 Sherman Street, within respectable reach of Prospect Park.
It’s a two-family set up as a single residence, with an open parlor floor that has the living room in front, dining room and kitchen in the rear and a pair of pass-through spaces in between. There are decorative wall moldings, pocket doors, a coffered ceiling in the rear and original floors that could use a refinish.
You could wring five bedrooms out of the upstairs if you’ve got a need for that many, or the smaller rooms could serve as offices or the like. There’s a middle room with no window, but it’s got a skylight.
There’s only a single bathroom up there, and not a large one at that, which will bother some. You could use one of the spaces to create an en suite master bath, as the listing suggests.
Speaking of space to play with, there’s an English basement that’s alleged to have high ceilings, which could be finished and put to use. Unfortunately, it is not pictured.
There’s a second-floor laundry room and a deck, accessed via a glass door. It’s not pictured, and neither is the yard. But if you’re inspired, the both of them along with the rest of the house can be eyeballed at an open house this evening.
Listed by Renata Thomas and John Mazurek of Douglas Elliman, the house is asking $1.995 million. What do you think?
