Meticulously renovated inside and out, featuring an owner's duplex, this two-family Crown Heights brownstone delivers chic designer style and a refined backdrop for sophisticated Brooklyn living. Configured as an upper three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom duplex with garden-floor unit, this home is an ideal find for homebuyers and investors alike. Enter the phenomenal 20-foot wide parlor level to discover over 50 feet of sun-filled living space, surrounded by tall wainscoting, exposed brick, wide-plank flooring, and sky-high ceilings. Relax in the bright living room flanked by a decorative fireplace, powder room and a bay window with a charming bench seat. A large dining area and bay-windowed breakfast nook provide excellent space for casual meals and formal entertaining, and a gorgeous backlit onyx island anchors the showstopping kitchen. A dynamic mix of wood and lacquer cabinetry joins a suite of Viking stainless steel appliances, including a vented cooktop, wall ovens, a French door refrigerator and dishwasher. Step outside to access the deck and garden, perfect for al fresco gatherings. On the upper level, discover a magnificent owner's suite that easily fits a king-size bed with a stunning en suite bathroom adorned with gleaming floor-to-ceiling stone, a soaking tub, walk-in shower and double vanity, all accented by beautiful brass hardware. Two spacious secondary bedrooms share an equally magnificent, windowed full bathroom. An in-unit washer-dryer completes the wonderful layout. On the garden level, you'll find not one, but two well-appointed apartments. A studio accented with bay windows and a rear-facing one-bedroom unit with a private patio. The finished basement can be utilized by the owner or as a common space for all. A classic high-stoop entry and ornate stone facade add incredible curb appeal to this breathtaking Brooklyn home. Set within the Crown Heights Historic District, 294 Albany Avenue is a remarkable Renaissance Revival rowhouse constructed in 1902. This fantastic location is just inches from amazing nightlife venues and restaurants that run the gamut, from upscale bakeries, burger joints and coffee spots to kosher pizza and Caribbean roti shops.

Crown Heights | Brooklyn

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.
