House of the Day: 627 St. Marks Avenue


This four-family Neo-Grec brownstone at 627 St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights has been beautifully renovated, with new mechanicals, central air, bathrooms, kitchens, windows, roof, floors — and on and on. The certificate of occupancy was changed from an SRO to a four family in 2010.

There are two one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom units, each with original marble fireplaces, shutters, moldings, and attractive new kitchens and baths. It’s close to Franklin Avenue and about equidistant from the Children’s Museum and Prospect Park.

It’s being marketed as an investment property — tenants pay for their own heat and hot water — but we could also see it working for a small family that wants an in-law on the ground floor and a rental on the top. The listing does not specify the rent roll or if it will be delivered vacant.

However, the ask of $1,900,000 makes it one of the most expensive row houses currently for sale in Crown Heights. What do you think they’ll get for it?
