House of the Day: 260 Decatur Street


The Bed Stuy listings just keep on coming. Here’s one we can sink our teeth into, with plenty of details and some interesting decor choices. The mechanicals have been updated, according to the listing, and most of the original details are in place. Just what we love to hear! Such details include a pier mirror, fretwork, built-ins, pocket doors, bay windows, stained glass, shutters, original closets, and mantels. The entrance is particularly stunning, with a ton of woodwork, a hat rack, a seat, and a little shelf, and what appears to be the original painted ceiling. The building is currently configured as two floor-through rentals over an owner’s duplex. They’re asking $2,000,000. That is quite close to the current Bed Stuy residential record holder, 254 Gates Avenue, designed by the Parfitt Brothers, which closed for $2,200,000 in January. Think they’ll get it?
