Step into 1198 Halsey Street and be instantly delighted by original details carefully blended with newly renovated features in this classic Bushwick townhouse. Gut-renovated in 2015 and improved since then, this three-family house (used as two-family) stands apart from every other house on the block, featuring a three bedroom owner's duplex with private deck over a high income producing duplex rental on the garden level, and a spacious backyard garden lush with greenery and Brooklyn charm.
Climb the stoop to the parlor level, where you will find a spacious dining and living space, beautifully accentuated with new wainscotting and crown molding. The kitchen, newly renovated in 2016, features quartz countertops with a recessed basin sink, Samsung appliances and open custom shelving. Adjoining the kitchen are the powder room with newly installed Kholer finishes, and a perfect breakfast nook with a view of the back yard.
On the garden level, the two bedroom rental duplex boasts a light-filled front bedroom which illuminates the kitchen through charming French doors. A second bedroom overlooks the yard, accessible through a mud room currently used as an office. Below the garden level is a finished basement (~7.5ft ceiling), currently used as an entertainment center and recording studio. The current occupants of the rental duplex are model tenants, currently on a month-to-month lease. At the buyer's option, this space can be delivered vacant, or with the current tenants.
Right across the street from Irving Square Park, which hosts summer movies, and Friday Green Markets. Steps away from both the Halsey Street and Wilson Avenue L stops, directly across the street from the B26 and B60 buses, and situated only four blocks from Bed-Stuy and three blocks from Ridgewood, Queens, your location puts you in easy access of everything Bushwick and the rest of Brooklyn have to offer! Local hotspots include Father Knows Best (boozing and brunching with a backyard), Halsey Ale House (burger heaven), Nowadays (a beer garden with food truck!), and Houdini Kitchen Laboratory (outdoor dining for pizza lovers).
The ductless air conditioning system on all four floors of the house has been newly serviced in 2020, with a completely new system installed in the basement.
