Property Description

We Have All The Original Details... Through the ornate wrought iron front door of this Crown Heights North brownstone, you have four floors of details waiting to be buffed and polished. And as a bonus the basement has the coveted arches and 7' ceilings. This home is currently set up as a double duplex. It is perfect for everyone that ever said, "I want all the original details but I also want newly renovated kitchens and baths" or "I want to do renovations, but I also want to be able to live (rent) in it while I do the work." You have stained glass pocket doors, center medallions in good condition, all of the crown moldings and balusters, the hardwood floors (which were covered in carpets and linoleum) are just waiting to be scuffed and poly'd. The kitchens are on the garden and top floors which gives lots of flexibility for the buyer that prefers an owners triplex and garden rental. You may also want to explore the possibility of using this as an owner's duplex + basement and two floor through rentals.

Quick Profile

Originally known as Crown Hill by the Lenape Indians that lived there, Crown Heights has evolved into a diverse neighborhood, occupied primarily by Hasidic Jews and one of the largest Caribbean populations to be found anywhere outside of the West Indies. 

Head over to Nostrand Avenue, one of the main West Indian commercial areas in the neighborhood, which is lined with stores that have been in those exact same places for generations, providing their goods and services to area residents. Kingston Avenue has similar commercial activities that support the Jewish community, and Franklin Avenue shows the most signs of change and gentrification, with an ever-expanding mix of yoga studios, coffee shops, and organic grocery stores that serve the influx of young professionals. No matter which of these areas you visit, you will find an interesting mix of businesses that you wouldn’t normally picture as existing side-by-side. It is all part of the cultural diversity of Crown Heights.

The neighborhood is bisected, from east to west, by Eastern Parkway, which is a beautiful, 3-mile-long boulevard lined with mature trees. This leafy oasis was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famed designer of Central Park, the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, and the U. S. Capitol in Washington, D. C.

You will find a mix of low-rise apartment buildings, large middle-class elevator buildings, brownstones, and some luxury buildings. Century-old architecture stands next to modern residential developments in a visually interesting mix of styles, much as the diversity of the residents exists. People who would not normally meet and mix are forging new pathways to cultural understanding by working, living, and playing together in the same neighborhood.
