Nicely renovated frame houses with details are still rare in East Flatbush, but here’s one. It’s located at 787 East 34th Street, between Foster and Farragut.
With a unit on each floor, the detached two-family could be reverted to one-family use, bought as investment property or used as an owner’s unit with a rental.
The early 20th century house is renovated, with fresh paint, refinished floors and new kitchens. Whether the upgrading extends past the cosmetic we’re not sure — the listing offers no mention of the mechanicals or of overall condition, though it does say the house is “beautifully preserved.”
Original details include doors with their original finish and parquet floors with inlaid borders.
The ground floor has a huge living room and sun room in front, bisected by a brick fireplace and lined by windows. There’s a bedroom in the rear and a third room adjacent to the kitchen that could serve as a second bedroom or a dining room.
The upstairs unit has a kitchen plus two rooms that are marked on the floor plan as bedrooms — a setup that could work, but leaves no living room.
There’s a driveway, a garage, front and rear yards and a rear deck on the second floor. The listing touts “close proximity” to Prospect Park, which is slightly odd since it’s maybe two miles off, but proximity is a relative term.
However, Brooklyn College and Target are nearby.
Listed by Douglas Elliman brokers Todd Stevens and John Keenan, the house is asking $1.1 million. You can see it tomorrow at an open house, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
