Featuring Emma James' listing at 120 Patchen Ave, Bedford-Stuyvesant: 

Bedford-Stuyvesant House • $1,650,000 • BROOKLYN • 120 Patchen Avenue
A two-family brick townhouse that has a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath owners’ duplex on the garden and parlor floors, and a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment above it, with beamed ceilings, oak floors, painted brickwork and high-end light fixtures, as well as a landscaped back garden and a full basement.
Emma James, Corcoran, 646-283-1303,
TAXES $2,871 a year
PROS One of the current owners is an architect and carried out a thoughtful, high-end renovation, adding salvaged antique pier mirror and mantelpieces, a garden-level kitchen with two sinks, Gaggenau wall ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. A playground and community garden across the street assure continued light and open views. The house is a short walk from a number of bars and restaurants.
CONS The owners combined two bedrooms on the parlor level to create a massive primary bedroom, but some buyers, families especially, may wish the bedroom count had been left alone. The home’s bathrooms are adequate but not large. The backyard is also on the small side.
