Located on a beautiful tree-lined block in Bed Stuy, this brownstone is a charmer that mixes unique period details with a crisp modern sensibility. Recently renovated, the four-story house at 276 Halsey Street is currently configured as an owner’s triplex over a garden rental, which also has access to the cellar.
The highly imaginative facade sports carved stonework and Romanesque detailing. Inside you will find six original mantels and a remarkable Eastlake-style staircase that has been refurbished. The parlor-floor opens into a stunningly spacious open plan living/dining room that extends into the kitchen and allows light from both the street and garden walls to flood the interior. The 10-foot ceilings, Bertazonni appliances (including a built-in wine fridge) and the south-facing deck and garden that are additional highlights.
On the third floor is one of two master bedrooms. This one has floor-to-ceiling windows, a private deck and an en suite bath, the latter of which features a restored claw-foot tub and rain shower. There’s a second bedroom on the same floor that could serve as an office or study.
An additional master bedroom, along with two additional smaller bedrooms, can be found on the top floor. A laundry room with Electrolux washer and dryer, a Zen garden and 3.5 baths round out the ample amenities.
The garden floor rental opens into a cheery kitchen/living/dining space with a restored fireplace, a full bath and two bedrooms. The apartment also incorporates the fully finished basement with seven-foot ceilings, a powder room and laundry room.
The building has central heating/cooling throughout, plus ample closet space, and skylights on the top floor. It’s a few minutes walk from the Kingston-Throop C Train and the Nostrand Avenue A train.
Nearby is the Tompkins Avenue commercial core and shops on Fulton Street that provide retail and cafes, restaurants and bars. The ask is $2.495 million. Henry Yang of Modern Spaces has the listing.
