This early 20th century Arts and Crafts style house is spacious, with plenty of original details and beautifully updated wet rooms. Plus, it has that rarest and most coveted of Brooklyn amenities: A garage.
Located on a tree-lined street and only one block to Shore Road’s waterfront parks and esplanades, 53 77th Street comprises three floors and a finished basement. Highlights include the spacious, airy and sunny first floor with its sunroom, parquet floors and original moldings. The semi-detached house has windows on three exposures for plenty of light throughout.
The living room has a large brick wood-burning fireplace flanked by windows. Beyond is the dining room with paneling, stained glass and Arts and Crafts staircase.
The classic kitchen has white Shaker style cabinets and white subway tile. The sink is positioned in front of a window overlooking the deck and backyard.
On the second floor is a master suite with its own windowed bath and two bedrooms with another full hall bath. The attic floor has two extra bedrooms — currently being used as an office and guest room — and another area that is optimal for storage.
The well-kept bedrooms have their original diagonal hardwood floors, doors and trim. The house’s baths are finished with classic black and white tile and marble. Altogether there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms over three floors and a finished basement.
In the basement, which has five windows, are wood floors, a full bath, laundry room, a gym, and the two large main flex rooms — currently being used as a playroom and a craft room. There’s also a direct entry to this level from the driveway.
Of course, Bay Ridge boasts beautiful parks, is near the water and has well-regarded schools. And 3rd Avenue has plenty to offer in the way of dining and entertainment, and the old-school Brooklyn neighborhood vibe is unmistakable.
As for transportation, the R, N and D are nearby, as is the ferry, and express buses to lower Manhattan.
For sale by owner Kara Kasper, a non-practicing licensed real estate broker, the house is asking $1.5 million. Buyer brokers are welcome, and the first showing is this Sunday, October 4, from 1 to 3 p.m.
