This 1890s brownstone at 615 MacDonough Street in Bed Stuy offers a classic floor plan with historic details and modern updates. Details include woodwork, original floors, pocket doors, a carved wood mantel with tile in the front parlor, and early 20th century electric light fixtures.
A giant kitchen on the ground floor has stone counters and milk glass pendant lights, three full bathrooms appear in good working order, and the upstairs bedrooms have ceiling fans.
The three-story house lends itself to a traditional configuration, with two large and two small bedrooms on the top floor, double parlor below, and kitchen and dining room on the ground floor. Alternatively, it could work with three large bedrooms or, as the listing suggests, with six bedrooms — and all living on the ground floor.
The backyard, consisting of a block-paved area ringed by planting beds, may offer some opportunity for green thumbs. Located close to Saratoga Park, the block won Honorable Mention in the 2014 Greenest Block in Brooklyn awards.
There’s an open house scheduled for tonight from 6 to 7 p.m. Listed by Chrisette Mignott and Morgan Munsey of Compass, the brownstone is asking $6,500 a month and there is no broker fee. Do you think it will go fast?
