Lovely 2-family home with 3 spacious stories: a garden owner’s duplex, top-floor rental apartment and unfinished full basement. Set on a deep lot (20x131) in Brooklyn’s sought-after Crown Heights neighborhood, this exceptionally well-maintained 1899 building currently offers a generous 2,833+/- square feet, with R5B zoning (1.35 FAR) allowing for an additional 650+/- square feet to be built to meet your needs. A perfect investment and home, whether kept as a 2-family with rental income, or easily converted to a fabulous single-family customized to your style and taste. Some cosmetic/restoration work will make this gem shine! The huge extra-deep rear yard is a rare and prized added bonus for NYC, great for outdoor gatherings, relaxing, and playtime for the kids and pets. The interior is stunning with high ceilings, original fireplace mantles, original moldings, hardwood floors and wood staircase. The generously-sized garden/ parlor duplex consists of a large living room, dining room, kitchen, office / study, four bedrooms and two full baths. The top-level rental apartment is also sun-filled and well-proportioned, featuring a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and full bath. The ample cellar houses the gas boiler and hot water heater, and has excellent room for storage. Besides the integrity of the home, the location is also exceptional, close to Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Trendy shops, restaurants, cafes, banks and other conveniences are minutes away along Bedford and Franklin Avenues, as are the 2, 3, 4, 5 trains and the bus at Franklin. What a gem, not to be missed!
