Three Brownstones and a Queen Anne to See in Bed Stuy This Weekend, Starting at $1.895 Million

by

All of our open house picks this week are in Bedford Stuyvesant (which coincidentally was recently named the No. 4 “coolest” neighborhood in the world by TimeOut), making a visit to all four this Sunday an option. They are fairly dripping with details, as one expects in this locale, and all have modern updates as well. They range in price from $1.895 million to $2.8 million.

One of a row of six picturesque Queen Anne stone and brick houses with faux mansard roofs, oriel windows and Romanesque Revival-style arches, a house at 147 Halsey Street has tremendous curb appeal. Copious original interior details include wood floors, trim, and mantels with fanciful toppers and colorful tile. Wet rooms are recently renovated with modern finishes. Somewhere inside, although not pictured, is an “original full-wall mural by noted conceptual installation artist Sol Lewitt,” according to the listing. The legal four-family is configured as two rental apartments over an owner’s duplex.

Close to shops and eateries in Stuyvesant Heights, this four-story Romanesque/Renaissance Revival brownstone at 593 Jefferson Avenue was designed by Langston and Dahlander and dates from the early 20th century. A two-family configured as an upper and lower duplex, it’s quite grand, with stained glass, parquet, a pier mirror, elaborate fretwork screens and wood mantels with original tile. A circa 1940s bathroom appears to be in fine condition, with white subway tile walls, turquoise mosaic floor tile and an arched niche for the tub. The mechanicals are new, and there is central air. A former House of the Day in 2018, it was asking $3.1 million at the time but didn’t sell.

Not far away, at 437 MacDonough, is an 1890s Queen Anne/Neo-Grec brownstone with elaborate unpainted woodwork, richly colored walls and slate mantels. A two-family currently in use as a single-family, it has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a parlor floor kitchen and deck leading down to the garden, and bathrooms updated in the latest style. A glimpse of the backyard in a photo and the floor plan indicate that it is nicely landscaped. Set up as an office, one of the bedrooms has an open and airy feel, with big windows and a glass door overlooking the garden. All the mechanicals are new and there is zoned air conditioning and heating.

Also in Stuyvesant Heights at 286 Stuyvesant Avenue is this 1881 Neo-Grec brownstone with classic details of the style, including elaborate carved marble mantels and plaster details such as arched niches and ceiling medallions. A single-family with a hidden fourth floor, the house has four bedrooms and 2.5 recently renovated bathrooms. Plumbing, electric and roof have all been upgraded, according to the listing. One set of passthroughs with original sinks is intact, and there are also original shutters and Lincrusta.
