Here's a rare opportunity to own a special home, great investment, and authentic piece of history! This circa 1840 wood shingle and clapboard townhouse, one of the last remaining pre-Civil War homes in the neighborhood, offers generous, timeless living space with a 21 wide footprint on a deep 100 lot. Beautifully preserved and renovated, this excellent condition multi-family gem comprised of 2 large, light-filled apartments is filled with oversized windows and original architectural details. Working fireplaces, original wide plank pine floors, tin ceilings, a wood-burning stove, cast iron bathtub, built-ins and other charming features add class and character enhanced by modern living elements that include renovated kitchens and bathrooms, generous closets and up-to-date mechanical systems.
The upper level triplex offers bright, beautiful quarters for everyday living and entertaining, with an open living/dining room, stylish kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a huge attic with windows on both sides. The one-bedroom garden apartment is equally comfortable with a renovated open kitchen, living/dining area, full bath with skylight, gorgeous oak flooring, washer/dryer and a huge private backyard. Live in the triplex and rent the garden floor for income, occupy the entire home with family members, or rent out both apartments. There is currently a tenant in place, though the home can be delivered vacant. This is truly a prime offering near BLDG 92, Brooklyn Grange, the world's largest rooftop soil farm, the BQE, hip Myrtle Avenue and more.
