Built in 1899 this pre-war rarely available double-duplex townhouse is located on a tree-lined street in prime Boerum Hill. This legal two-family sits on a 20 x 75 ft lot. The building has a red brick exterior, dimensions are 20 ft x 40 ft, providing over 3,000 square feet with another 400 sq ft of exterior space; this well-maintained home has 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath and boasts original detail such as hardwood floors, pocket doors, exposed brick walls, and 7 decorative mantles, with several working fireplaces.
The lower-level garden duplex, measuring over 1,900 square feet, is configured as a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit but could easily be reworked into a comfortable 3-bedroom layout. The open loft-like parlor level features high, 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick, and original hardwood floors. In the front of the parlor level, there is a sunny and inviting living area with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Hoyt Street. The center of the parlor level is currently used as a dining area with enough room to seat eight or more comfortably. The kitchen features stainless appliances, a marble countertop, open shelving, and charming cabinetry. The back of the parlor level provides a flexible space that could be used as a home office area, library, or open can be opened up to extend the kitchen. The floor-to-ceiling windows and extended glass door lead to a large deck, perfect for alfresco dining, entertaining, and grilling. The private garden is ideal for the urban gardener featuring an apple tree.
Before leading down the stairs to the garden level, a half bath is convenient for guests. This garden level has a second means of access under the stoop leading to a sizable hallway with ample space for storing coats, shoes, luggage, or a stroller. The sunny bedroom in the front of the garden level easily accommodates a queen-sized bed and two generous closets. There's plenty of extra room for a home office area in this room as well. In the center of the hallway, there is a full bath with a shower stall. The entire back half of this floor is configured as the primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom tub and a large walk-in closet, with additional storage and a washer/dryer area. The lower duplex has been further modernized with a mini-split A/C system for Air and Heat.
The south-facing, sun-blasted upper duplex features an open living/dining room with a decorative fireplace, high ceilings, exposed brick, original hardwood floors, and tall windows. Adjacent to the living/dining area is a windowed kitchen with plentiful wood cabinetry and updated stainless steel appliances, including a GE Oven and Bosch dishwasher. The original wood door in the kitchen leads to an upper terrace that overlooks the garden. Before going up to the top level, there is 1 bedroom that can fit a full-sized bed or be used as a home office. On the top floor, there are 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath.
You can easily reside in the full property and utilize it as a one-family or elect to rent out either duplex for income. The current tenant in the upper duplex is open to entering into a long-term lease at a market rate or the house can be delivered vacant.
