Located on a beautiful tree-lined block within Stuyvesant Heights, this three-family brownstone is a charmer that mixes modern sensibility with income-producing units. Newly renovated, the four-story townhouse at 743 Putnam Avenue is configured as two rental units over an owner's duplex, which has full private access to both the finished cellar and backyard.
The owner's parlor floor opens into a stunningly spacious open-plan living/dining room that extends into the chef's kitchen. The open layout allows plenty of natural light to beam through from both front south-facing windows and rear floor-to-ceiling windows. The 10-foot ceilings, 48" professional stove with double oven, high-end appliances, and the north-facing deck and garden are additional highlights.
The garden floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master faces the quiet backyard, with an en-suite bath, and features a double sink and walk-in shower. The garden level seamlessly connects to the fully finished cellar which can be a great open space for a TV room and home gym. The owner's unit has a central heating/cooling system.
The third and fourth floors are two fully renovated rental units. Both units have two spacious bedrooms, stainless steel kitchen appliances, a modern bathroom, an in-unit washer/dryer, split heating and cooling, and ample space for entertaining. Both units are flooded with sunlight, especially the top floor unit with multiple skylights. Separate utilities.
The house is just minutes walk from the express A/C Train at the Utica stop and local favorites such as Saraghina, Chez Oscar, Tradroom.. etc.
