Fantastic CONDO alternative and now with an improved price!! Avoid the common charges and taxes are just $148/month!!
Nestled amongst historic buildings on Tompkins Avenue, you must have walked past this house and wondered what's behind the railings. Well, now you can find out! In short, it offers the functionality of a condo without the condo fees and all the autonomy of a single family home!
This two story residence is awash with charm--from the exterior decorative doors salvaged from the Domino Sugar Factory to the historic cast iron column bases, to the beautiful exposed wooden beams.
Defused morning light shines in through the etched windows onto an open plan living space comprising a foyer, a comfortable sitting area and a unique and practical kitchen that flows into the dining area. Cleverly envisioned by the owner architect/designer, functionality is maximized--there's an organized entry way with a chalk board for your shopping list, an entire wall of bookshelves, open plan kitchen storage with shelves and hooks to showcase your cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens plus a decorative spice jar cabinet. The HVAC/utility closet is discreetly tucked in a corner.
An iron circular staircase leads you up to another wide open space with an expansive bedroom, a large bathroom with a clawfoot tub, washer dryer and a windowed alcove ideal for a crib or a home office. (Please see the alternate floor plan as there's enough space for 2 bedrooms)
A doorway from the bedroom leads out onto a delightful New Orleans style balcony overflowing with plants and ready for you to grill even in the rain.
(The house is set up as a 1 bedroom. The alternate floor plan shows the 2 bedroom set up and its an easy change!)
Tompkins Avenue epitomizes Bed Stuy neighborhood living with locally owned businesses like Peace & Riot, Chicky's General Store, Peaches Hot House, Bed Vyne Wine and Brew, Eugene & Co--the list goes on and on. You have almost everything you need right on your very own avenue. Around the corner is Restoration Plaza--who doesn't want to listen to Motown as they shop for groceries?--the Nostrand Avenue A and the LIRR plus the Kingston-Throop C.
The building is zoned as a single family with a store front and can therefore be creatively used for your newest iteration of "work from home". Pottery studio? Flower shop? Taco stand? The choice is yours.
