Property Description

A rare find. This enchanting two family home, on a 31’ x 120’ lot, features incredible, intact, prewar details, with a very large footprint. Here you’ll find a huge five bedroom owner's duplex, complete with a formal living room and dining room and bonus rooms; and a large, two bedroom garden rental, with a living room and a formal dining room that is easily turned into a 3 bedroom apt to maximize your rental income. You’ll enter into a large sunroom – with plenty of room to sit and relax. It’s a perfect space for your starter plants as there is a huge front yard and a backyard that is 57’ long x 30’ wide! Your inner gardener will go wild here. Go further in to find two gorgeous original doors – one leads to the duplex and the other to the first floor apt. The first floor apartment is charming and large – it has a great living room and formal dining room, with archways and bay windows; a huge, retro windowed eat-in-kitchen, with tin ceilings, a cast iron porcelain covered sink with drainboard, great cabinet space and two exposures (one overlooking the backyard); a pretty pink and white bathroom with original tin ceiling; and two bedrooms. Photos of this apartment will come next week. The upper duplex: walk upstairs and be charmed by the foyer that has room for a bench and more. Details abound here. You’ll enter into the spacious dining room. There’s a gorgeous stained glass window, two built in china cabinets with leaded glass doors, one has a columned mantel with original mirror. The dining room flows into the living room, space is abundant. The living room has a beautiful decorative fireplace, bay windows with shutters, and picture frame moldings. Through the living room there is another room, used as the library/office with custom shelving. On the other side of the house, there is a large eat-in-kitchen, with two exposures, one overlooking the verdant backyard. There are two nice bedrooms on this level, one is used as a reading room and has custom bookcases. The bathroom has a wonderful clawfoot tub, an original octagon tiled floor, white subway tiles, and a special vintage lighting fixture. Walk up to the third floor and you’ll find two spacious bedrooms, a hallway that is another room in and of itself – perfect for an office space, and another room with a cast iron sink that can be either used as an artist’s studio or another bedroom. There is also an original bath that needs restoration. Almost all the rooms in the duplex have wooden shutters and there are hardwood floors throughout. The backyard is immense – and ready to be the playground or entertaining yard/garden of your dreams. The high ceilinged basement is easily finished, and can be connected to either the first floor apt or the upper duplex, and it houses the mechanicals. The gas boiler is new. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a multi-family home, with a very large owners duplex that you can live in and enjoy for years to come. Located in Kensington, it’s near all. Its equidistant to the F/G and Q lines, it's right off Ocean Parkway bike path, great for rides to Prospect Park and to the beach. It’s near all the retail amenities on Ditmas Ave and on Cortelyou Road. Don’t let this home be the one that gets away. Make an appointment to view today.
