If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a brownstone in historic Bed Stuy, here’s your chance to do it at an affordable buy-in.
This building at 331A Stuyvesant Avenue is a way into an area where it’s not unusual to see $2 million listings — (in Bed Stuy, from April 2015 to March 2016, the average price per square foot increased from about $500 to $700, or 40 percent).
The three-story building is divided into two units with separate entrances. Downstairs, a three-bedroom duplex on the garden and parlor floors can be delivered to the new owners vacant; upstairs, a top floor simplex is rented until May 2018 at $1,700 a month.
A recent renovation restored many of the historic details of this 19th-century brownstone: mantels on some of its five fireplaces, vintage doors, plaster ceiling medallions, detailed window and door frames, and original hardwood inlaid floors. The baseboard, crown, decorative moldings, wood shutters and wainscoting have been maintained.
The heart of the duplex exists around the open kitchen, dining, and living area. Best of all, the kitchen also leads to the ultimate urban oasis: a large landscaped private backyard.
On the second floor, there’s room for an office or kids’ play space and a second full bathroom. The queen- and king-sized bedrooms both feature parlor-height 12-foot ceilings and oversized windows.
331A Stuyvesant Avenue is steps away from such destination restaurants as Saraghina, Peaches, and L’Antagoniste, and places to grab a drink like Therapy Wine Bar and Casablanca Cocktail Lounge.
The ask is $1.25 million with $200 per month tax. Check out 331A Stuyvesant Avenue’s website here.
An open house for this property will take place today, Thursday, August 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, August 21 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
