299 Monroe Street

Bedford Stuyvesant, New York|$1,625,000

Bed Stuy Townhouse

Designed and built in 1899, this sunny 20 ft. wide Brownstone is located in the heart of the Bedford-Stuyvesant community, one of the largest in Brooklyn and a central part of the Brownstone Belt. Number 299 Monroe, like so many of the homes there, is blessed with lots of period detailing and the classic architectural elements of the Italianate and Romanesque Revival eras. The high stoop, and double french doors flanked by stone columns remain intact as does the elaborate galvanized cornice. Inside, the house has the original layout, and while some necessary improvements were made, more renovation work will be required to restore its glory.

The parlor level boasts 11 ft. high ceilings, pocket doors, carved woods, and 2 original marble fireplaces. Plaster medallions, picture rail moldings, and parquet flooring can be found here as well as throughout the house. Upstairs on the third floor there are four bedrooms, two with fireplaces, and a full bathroom. Downstairs the garden level offers a formal dining room, large eat-in-kitchen and full bathroom. The extension off the kitchen leads out back to a deep garden. There is egress to the cellar here as well as from the front.

This completes the picture for this "diamond in the rough". But with your TLC and personal touches it can be the gem it was back in the day. Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn! A stunning community with over 300 years of history that is currently very high in demand! 30 minutes to midtown Manhattan, 10 minutes to subway, 5 minutes to shopping, restaurants and bars. Come check it out!!!
