Are you looking for that special house that gives you everything you
already need and everything that you may want in a few years? Well then
427 Franklin Avenue is the home for you now. This terrific house on the
Bedford Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill border, close to all that you desire, has
A.I.R of over 2,600 square feet. In other words, this home has enormous
potential. Currently, a duplex over a lovely garden rental, an ideal set-up,
with East and West exposures ensure that you wake up to the sun in the
rear of the house and watch the setting sun in the evening on the facade.
The home has been renovated and has a wonderful open loft feeling and
vibe. Radiant heat floors throughout, including the fully-finished basement,
new wood floors, several original mantels, two wood burning fireplaces, for
those chilly days, high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows in the living room, a
lovely and inviting entry, a plethora of light and many original details make
this house a home. Off of the large airy kitchen there are stairs leading to a
secluded garden oasis filled with hydrangea and even a tree house.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a large lovely bathroom. Stairs have
already been installed when you choose to add an extra floor or add a
decked lovely roof-top sanctuary. On the second floor there is also laundry.
The rental apartment commands $2,700 a month but could also be
incorporated into the duplex for a nice single use home. (It will be delivered
vacant.) The options are obviously bountiful. Close to transportation, the A,
C, G and S trains, B25 and B26, buses, along with grocery stores, cafés,
bars and restaurants, this home is almost perfect, all it needs is you to
make it home!
