When you enter the compound at 875 Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, you might wonder if you’ve somehow landed in California.
Located off Vanderbilt Avenue close to Barclays Center, the 25-by-100-foot lot holds a renovated one-family carriage house with a garage in the front and another renovated residence in the rear.
A bluestone walkway runs along the side of the main house through a landscaped central yard to the house in the rear. Both houses overlook the central yard, and the front house has a deck leading down to it from the kitchen.
Use the whole property as a family compound, a live-work space, or one or both houses as income-producing properties.
Both buildings have an excellent view of the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, a beautiful church built in the Spanish colonial style in 1912 and the larger of two cathedrals used by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Brooklyn.
The front building, set up as a single family, is three stories tall, with a garage big enough for an SUV. The facade is of reclaimed brick and there are custom mahogany front doors.
The second floor has a living room and an open kitchen/dining area with cabinets with flush inset doors, Porcelanosa tiles and Thermador appliances. A balcony with stairs looks over and leads down to the courtyard between the two buildings.
The ground floor holds two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The third floor is a master bedroom suite, with a huge (18 by 14 foot) deck in front, and a generously sized bedroom with en-suite bath, two walk-in closets, a skylight and balcony in the rear.
The second house could be used as an income property earning approximately $6,000 per month, a grandma and grandpa suite, or the ultimate home office.
The main floor has a living/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen and half bath. The second floor comprises two bedrooms and a full bath. The basement is set up as a recreation area with an additional half bath.
The property is situated near some of Brooklyn’s best shopping, dining, nightlife and transportation, including Barclays, Atlantic Terminal, the LIRR, Prospect Park and BAM.
Listed by Alexander Maroni of Douglas Elliman, the home is asking $3.95 million. The taxes are $140 per month.
