Property Description for 8877 15th Ave

Enjoy the pride of home ownership and the perks of rental income.

Two residential units, spread over three floors, are configured as a 2 bedroom / 1 bath over another 2 bedroom / 1 bath over a 1 bedroom / 1 bath with backyard access.

This home gives you the flexibility to convert and reconfigure space as your lifestyle and living requirements expand or contract over the decades: keep it as-is for maximum rental income; or with clever but minimal renovation, reclaim some hallways to convert a pair of units to an upper or lower duplex; or extended families can enjoy a deluxe triplex and communal living.

A generous and well proportioned 3,162 square feet of living space on a 1933 square foot lot yields a pleasing ratio of indoor and outdoor space. Outside is a driveway, an elevated patio atop your garage and a private backyard give you multiple zones to barbecue, enjoy your coffee and the morning paper, or work on outdoor projects (like your tan and a good book).

Your home is walkable to educational and recreational amenities like PS 229 and Dyker Beach Park and Golf Course (Tiger’s Dad learned to play here while he was stationed at Fort Hamilton).

Designed by the Olmsted brothers, this 217-acre park features baseball, football, and soccer fields as well as bocce, basketball, handball, and tennis courts in addition to 18 holes of championship level golf.

Bike, jog or fish along the New York Harbor as you enjoy sunsets over the Verrazano Bridge.

The X38 express bus on the nearest corner zooms you to Manhattan to make short work of your morning commute.

Bath Beach | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Bath Beach is a rectangular swatch of land located at the southwestern edge of Brooklyn, along Gravesend Bay. For a small, primarily residential neighborhood it has a lot of history. Bath Beach is named after the famous Roman built spa and hot springs found in Bath, England.

It has a dense urban feel and it’s often confused with its neighbor Bensonhurst. In fact, Bath Beach was once nicknamed Bensonhurst by the sea. Despite its name, there is no beach. It was paved over to make room for modern day roadways. 

Bath Beach is bounded by 86th Street to the north, Shore Parkway to the south, Bay Parkway to the east, and the Dyker Beach Park and Golf Course to the west. 

The ethnically diverse and mostly middle-class neighborhood has a variety of architectural styles that include small apartment buildings, semi-attached homes and mid-20th century attached brick row houses with garages on the ground floor. There are many stand-alone Victorian houses throughout Bath Beach. They’ve been modernized with siding, enclosed porches and brickwork. Their turrets and steeply pitched roofs give a unique aesthetic to the area.  

86th Street is the commercial artery. It’s the heart of everything and offers restaurants serving all types of cuisines, mom and pop shops, and big box retailers.

Bath Beach was once home to freed slaves that were given land settlements in the Mid 19th Century. Its name is derived from an area known as The Bath Beach Resort, an affluent beach club that once stood. Back in the 1860’s, railway advancements began connecting residential neighborhoods of Brooklyn. It didn’t take long for Bath Beach to receive an influx of people. The resort flourished, offering summer homes, yacht clubs and hotels to New York’s high society. Sadly, the beach was paved over in the mid-twentieth century in the name of expansion. The Shore Parkway now stands where the beach club was. 

For decades the area was predominantly Italian but recent waves of Chinese and Russian immigration has changed the fabric of the neighborhood.
