Bed-Stuy has turned from “do or die” to gentrified. Those looking to benefit from rising real estate prices or earn some cool points are moving into the Brooklyn neighborhood at a rapid pace. And with these buyers and renters come renovations. Here are two Bed-Stuy properties — one rental and one brownstone for sale — that show the transformation.
752 Jefferson Ave., 1
This renovated rental promises modern luxuries with charm dating back to the 1900s. The garden level apartment features a private entrance that opens up to a large living space. There is also a separate dining with an arched feature dividing the two.
Modern finishes include stainless steel appliances and Caesarstone countertops in the kitchen; and the bathroom has beautiful touches, including subway tiles and brushed bronze fixtures. The massive bedroom has two windows, with views of the backyard, and access to the shared basement, which includes storage, a full sized washer/dryer and a half bath.
