Built in 1899, this lovely home underwent a top-to-bottom transformation only a few years ago. Warm, natural elements like exposed brick walls and wide plank oak floors are combined with lovely modern touches to create a rich blend of textures and finishes. Brilliant light and cross breezes flow through the house from over-sized windows, transoms and skylights. The absolutely stunning kitchen offers top-of-the-line appliances (including Bosch and a vented Blue Star range and hood), impeccable white stone countertops, custom cabinetry and a breakfast bar. It steps out to a peaceful and secluded back garden and terrace – perfect for entertaining. All of the baths are a sleek blend of porcelain and glass tile and modern fixtures. Both the owners unit and the exquisite top floor rental were renovated in the same style, allowing for a seamless conversion to a single family home, if the new owner desires. In its current configuration, the rental unit generates approximately $33,000 a year in income! The handsome barrel-fronted brick façade and the building mechanicals are all in beautiful condition. Its many other features include CAC and a completely finished rec room, currently used as guest quarters, laundry room and storage. You’re perfectly located in what’s fast becoming Brooklyn’s premier destination neighborhood for amazing shops, cafes and restaurants including: Bar Corvo, Mayfield, Cent'Anni and Berg'n Beer Garden. You’re steps away from the 2/3, 4/5 trains, and a few blocks to Brooklyn’s cultural heart: The Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park. At the price of a typical condo, this beautiful home may be one of the last best deals in Brownstone Brooklyn!
Runs from Franklin Avenue to the west, Atlantic Avenue to the north, Ralph Avenue to the east and Empire Boulevard to the south.
Crown Heights offers a variety of housing options: For townhouses, the Crown Heights North Historic District contains large and finely detailed row houses and freestanding mansions designed by Brooklyn’s major architects in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the area townhouses sport stained glass, ornate plaster ceiling medallions, and oversized windows. There are even rental units available in Crown Heights with these amazing historical details. A second area around Brower Park contains four- and five-family homes built mostly in the Renaissance Revival style, and Italian and Greek Revival styles, too. But if you do not desire a townhouse, the former Brooklyn Jewish Hospital of Crown Heights has been renovated to hold 700 rental apartments — some with 12-foot ceilings.
