Welcome home to your solar-powered, modern 2-family with stunning, barrel-front, brick exterior. This gut-renovated house is centered on the most beautiful block in Bushwick, complete with century-old brick row houses and lined with majestic London Plane Trees.
Showings are available by appointment. Adhering to strict guidelines, group size will be limited and masks are required.
House is 20 ft wide and 58 ft deep, significantly deeper than most Brooklyn homes, affording plenty of room for floor-through apartments. Each apartment is a spacious 1010 sf. The open plan gourmet kitchen, dining area, and living room is loft-like at nearly 40 x 13 ft! Sunlight streams through double paned 6 foot windows. Upstairs apartment features 11 ft ceilings, bathroom skylight, and additional small room.
English basement is finished, livable, flexible space with pantry, half bath, laundry, large closets, heat, AC, and windows and doors in front and rear. Useful as a duplex floor, shared rec space, or rentable art studio for additional income. Dark room has water access and exhaust fan, with potential for many other uses.
Let this house work for you. Solar array covers 100% of electric use, even when AC and hot tub are running! Efficient appliances and ductless AC ensure kilowatt hours are put to good use. Smart doorbell, smart thermostats, smart AC, and smart washer, and smart dryer simplify chores. Most importantly, live in either apartment without sacrificing potential rental income because both apartments are equally spacious and well configured. Upstairs unit will conservatively earn $3500 and downstairs, $3000 a month.
Lot is 100 ft deep, allowing for large, private backyard of 40 ft x 20 ft, featuring 4-person hot tub, 20 ft x 12 ft deck, and established, drought-tolerant garden. Plants include magnolia tree, dogwood, lilac, rose bush, daffodils, iris, peonies, and ornamental grasses.
Located fewer than two blocks to the newly renovated L Train at Halsey Street and a short walk to the M Train, you are a quick ride to Manhattan. However, you may never want to leave the neighborhood: half a block to Irving Square Park and playground, close to three brewery-taprooms (Queens Brewery, Evil Twin Brewing, and Bridge and Tunnel Brewery), and many well-reviewed restaurants like Houdini's Kitchen Laboratory, Habanero, Fazio's, Father Knows Best, Nowadays, and Halsey Ale House. Don't even get us started on the coffee shops and bakeries.
