Opportunity Knocks

Built in 1899, this 20 x 55 beautiful barrel-front limestone is located on a leafy block within the historic district of Lefferts Gardens. A legal two-family configured as two floor-through apartments plus a basement. Both floors have high ceilings, original oak parquet floors, coffered ceilings and stained-glass windows. Create a luxurious single family or take two floors and rent the other. The basement could be converted into a legal apartment (through the DOB) with a gracious
... 2,000 SF owner's duplex above.

A third option would be to adjoin the basement/ recreation room with the apartment on the first floor. This would allow for a higher rental income and lower renovation costs. The current owner is willing to deliver the property with approved plans tailored to your needs, see both sets of plans. They are also open to digging out the basement for the new owner for a reasonable fee.

One of a series of row houses in close proximity to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Train and bus accessibility is phenomenal with the Prospect Park B/Q in one direction and the Sterling Street 2/5 in the other. Once the new design of Flatbush Avenue between the park and botanic garden is completed, you’ll be tempted to jump on a Citi Bike and give the new bike path a spin.
