Embodying Stuyvesant Height's rich history and integrity, the ornate original details in this turn-of-the-century brownstone were meticulously restored: graciously high ceilings, original wood flooring, 5x unique decorative fireplace mantels, custom moldings, and wooden pocket doors with custom handles. 967 Greene is flawlessly set back from the street, on a full 100 ft. deep lot and showcases three stories (2,588 SF) above grade, an expansive backyard garden and finished basement.
Enter into the airy parlor floor, with soaring 10' 8" ceiling height, consisting of two living areas separable by pocket doors, a library/office with built-ins and a sleek full bathroom. Ascend the stairs within the home, onto the upper floor with 9' 4" ceilings and tremendous sunlight gleaming through six large windows and one skylight. On each side, there is one king-sized bedroom and one smaller bedroom separated by a dressing area with built-in closets and a full bathroom with a vintage claw bathtub.
The garden floor features an expansive dining room, a full bathroom and an eat-in kitchen upgraded with stainless steel appliances and farmhouse sink. Behind the kitchen door is access onto the backyard oasis: over 800 SF of open outdoor space, simply a gardener's dream! Finally, below the garden level is a full-height basement with access to the private laundry room and storage space.
Enjoy the convenience of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City: the Stuyvesant Heights cafes and restaurant scene, Broadway's shops and services, and close proximity to the Kosciuszko St J, M, Z subway lines.
Known for its historic brownstones and tight-knit enclave, Bed-Stuy has increasingly left behind its early reputation for being a “bedroom community” and transcended into a highly desirable neighborhood.
Distinct for its aesthetic, it is populated with ornate buildings characterized by cornices, friezes, finials, fluting and other marks of classic architecture. Built up during the period from 1870 to 1900, its historic district runs to the north of Jefferson Avenue, to the east of Malcolm X Boulevard and to the west of Tompkins Avenue.
At one point known as “Brooklyn’s Little Harlem,” the shape of the area has shifted toward attracting a wider demographic of people thanks to the influx of bars, restaurants, antique furniture stores and vintage boutiques. More police enforcement paired with the decline of the crack epidemic at the beginning of the 2000s also opened the door for increased development, as well as the occupation of formerly abandoned buildings and spaces.
