Welcome to 908 Lafayette Avenue, a modern home at the cutting edge of Brooklyn's architectural renaissance! Before you enter, you will be struck by the originality of the mixed media faade and the massive parlor level windows. Built approximately 18' x 42', 908 Lafayette offers space to spread out both in the master duplex, which occupies the top two floors, and the rental duplex, which occupies the ground floor and cellar level. Enter the owner's unit via the tastefully minimalist metal stoop and... be dazzled by the magnitude of the living and dining areas. A designer kitchen, located unobtrusively towards the back, features a Fisher and Paykel double-door refrigerator, all Bosch appliances including a five-burner gas range that vents out and a paneled dishwasher. It offers more counter space than you ever dreamed you could have in the City! Upstairs and towards the back of the house, you will find a carefully laid out master suite featuring a private bathroom and generous closet. There are two additional bedrooms on this level with a shared bathroom and plenty of closet space. Utilities are separate. The community of Bedford Stuyvesant is desired for so many reasons, namely the rich history, idyllic tree lined streets, and jaw dropping architecture. 908 Lafayette is in close proximity to local joints like Saraghina, Peaches, Bar Lunatico, Chez Oskar, Casablanca, L'Antagoniste, Skal, Olivino Wines, and so many more! Only 4 blocks from Bed Stuy's favorite park, Herbert Von King Park. With over 3 train lines to choose from, commuting will be a cinch 4 blocks to the J at Kosciuszko, 5 blocks to the G at Bedford Nostrand and a quick bus or stroll to the A/C at Utica.
