This early 20th century Bay Ridge house beautifully combines original details with a fresh renovation that enhances its Spanish neo-Colonial and Arts and Crafts style. It also boasts that most coveted of New York amenities — a two-car garage and a private driveway.
The well-preserved exterior of 475 82nd Street has lots of curb appeal with two stories of orange brick, white trim, a green tile roof supported by brackets, and a matching green front door.
Inside are beautiful parquet and inlaid floors, original moldings, doors and wainscoting. The main floor has a sunroom at the front of the house, a spacious living room, and a dining room and new kitchen that are open to each other — all with a clean, open feel.
The semi-detached house benefits from windows on three exposures. The sunroom has windows on two sides and a coat closet. The living room is large, with beautiful parquet, original moldings and a brick mantel.
The parquet continues into the dining room, which has the original Arts and Crafts-style staircase, a bank of windows, and wainscoting.
The large, open kitchen has big glass doors and windows on two exposures and beautiful diagonal wood floors. It has wood counters and white cupboards. The kitchen island seats four and has a stone counter, a sink and a dishwasher. There is also a half-bath on this floor.
Upstairs are three large bedrooms, including two that are each more than 15 by 10 feet. The bedrooms all have their original details, including doors, diagonal wood floors and moldings.
There are two full bathrooms on this floor, one with a tub and one with a shower, as well as four closets. Pictured is a bathroom with a mosaic tile floor, white vanity and deep tub with pretty wood surround, all new but in keeping with the style of the house.
The finished basement has a recreation room, a den, full bath, washer/dryer and storage space. The garage sits next to a landscaped garden that enjoys shade from several large trees.
The home is close to shops and eateries on 5th Avenue and nearby streets and the R train at 86th Street.
Listed by Jeanette C. Colegrove and the Cappi Colegrove Team of Brown Harris Stevens, the house is asking $1.449 million.
