This newly renovated Renaissance Revival two-family brownstone built in 1899 is a 5-bedroom, 3-and-half-bath townhouse with a laundry room and a fully finished basement. 900 Lafayette is a quiet, warmly lit, perfect balance of old world BedStuy charm with the welcomed conveniences of an updated home.

Originally built as a single-family home it has been perfectly converted into a 2-family with a garden apartment, and could easily be converted back to its original layout. Entering the home you'll immediately notice the spacious 11-foot ceilings and striking natural light streaming through the oversized southern facing windows in the kitchen. Partially exposed brick ushers you through the living room into a sizeable fully updated kitchen.

On the second floor you'll find a large tranquil master suite with ample closets and an en-suite bathroom. Adding even more natural light a skylight cascades into the hallway leading to two more bedrooms with a shared bathroom and separate laundry room.

With 4 new Fujitsu ductless split HVAC systems you'll enjoy zone specific climate control and more closet and window space throughout. The basement is currently set up with a home gym complete with a ballet barre and mirror. With the current layout the basement can be shared or kept to the upper duplex. Lastly, the garden 2-bedroom apartment with outdoor space, is truly a turnkey rental.

Just a few blocks away from the J train this home is a must see.
