These two beautifully maintained, historic properties — one was built in 1840 for an employee of a long-ago estate here, and the other probably not long after — sit on one lot, right across the street from Prospect Park. And that presents the future owner with both an opportunity for spacious and deluxe living accommodations, and with three additional apartments ready on day one to generate income.
Each house, and the lot itself, at 50 Prospect Park Southwest, are 25 feet wide, with a courtyard separating the two buildings. The first building, with the owner’s quarters, faces Prospect Park.
It’s Italianate in style, with a large, light-filled living room and a separate dining room. It has many original features, such as bannisters, an arched marble mantel and high tin ceilings.
There are modern updates as well, as evidenced by the sleek new European-style bathrooms and double-paned windows throughout. The recently redone kitchen offers the latest, full-sized stainless steel appliances, sleek hardwood and glass cabinetry, and quartz countertops.
On the second floor, there is a master bedroom, another large bedroom, and a smaller room that could serve as a nursery or office. The master bath has a floating vanity, Grohe fixtures and a deep soaking tub with built in Bluetooth speakers. The top floor of this building is a tidy one-bedroom with full kitchen, bath, bedroom and living/dining room.
Across the wide, private courtyard is another building, originally built in 1840 and well maintained through the years. The first and second floors of this building make up the second rental unit, with a kitchen/dining area and bathroom on the ground floor and a living room, two bedrooms and a bath on the second floor.
All the current tenants are on a month-by-month basis and the apartments can be delivered vacant to the next owner.
The location is a good one: next to the park, in the district for P.S. 154, close to the F and G trains at the 15th Street stop, and convenient to the all the amenities that make Windsor Terrace one of the most comfortable neighborhoods in this part of Brooklyn.
Listed by John Mazurek and Cynthia Barrera of Douglas Elliman, the property is asking $3 million. Monthly taxes are $534.
