A uniquely stunning property that can be made your own: this rarely available semi-detached brownstone on a quintessential lovely tree-lined Bed-Stuy block offers over 3,000 square feet of living space, and a generous garden that can be designed as the outdoor space of your dreams.

With a striking angular facade, this 20-foot-wide home provides ample opportunity for creative expression with its uniquely shaped front-facing rooms. Old-world charm abounds with endless original details such as intricate woodwork, pocket doors, tile-inlaid fireplaces and exposed brick.

Currently configured as a single-family home, this legal two-family can be converted to an owner's duplex on garden/parlor levels, and an apartment on the third floor.


Beautiful, original double doors open to a charming, tiled vestibule. The inviting entry has that WOW factor as the original details such as artistic woodwork, pocket doors, and a tiled fireplace in the front parlor come into view. There are three rooms, all with flexible uses, on this level. The rear room impresses with three garden-facing windows, two closets, a fireplace and a gorgeous custom renovated spacious bath, complete with steam shower.


The garden level provides optimum privacy with its own street-facing entryway. The front room is loaded with lovely authentic details such as original interior shutters, a tile-inlaid fireplace and a built-in hutch. A dining room sits behind the front room, and the glorious, custom gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, including a professional grade chef's range faces the garden. There's additional storage and a wine fridge off the dining room, as well as a powder room!


Three rooms grace the upper level: Two street-facing rooms and one expansive rear-facing space. The front rooms, as all spaces in this home, are versatile and can be used in a multitude of ways. The smaller room may be perfect as a home office or reading room. Off the long, rear space is a convenient laundry room. There is also a full bath on this level, complete with one of three beautiful skylights, two of which are stained-glass, featured on this floor! The upper level can be converted to a one-bedroom apartment, and the laundry area can easily be renovated for use as a kitchen.


A full raw space with potential for efficient storage or to remodel for your desired use; includes a half-bath!

Some remarkable features of this splendid home: custom conveniences added by current owners, such as pocket doors to two of the baths, interior shutters in the rear-facing parlor-level room, central air conditioning, and a state-of-the-art security system.

Located close to the desirable Malcolm X Blvd, where countless restaurants and cafes abound, and close to subway and bus lines, 841 Putnam Avenue is the piece of brownstone Brooklyn you've been waiting for!
