Back on Market!
Rare opportunity to acquire a quintessential Brooklyn Brownstone set on a tree-lined block and located within one of the borough’s most notable neighborhoods – The Stuyvesant Heights Historic District.
Constructed in 1885, this Neo-Grec Style rowhouse is notable for its three-story projecting bay and elaborately detailed raised entrance. Located on a generously scaled lot that measures some 20 feet wide by 100 feet deep, with a first-floor extension and finished cellar, the house provides over 4200 square feet of living space in addition to 4 private outdoors spaces.
Unlike many houses from this period, 263 MacDonough Street has retained its character defining interior period details that give it such a wonderful character. These include elaborate plaster moldings, a gracious mahogany staircase, pocket doors, wood shutters, and decorative fireplaces, among others. The gracious character of the house is clearly seen on the parlor floor which has nearly 12-foot-high ceiling, and the aforementioned plaster work and woodwork.
The existing layout of the house allows for a wide choice of uses with a garden level duplex unit with private outdoor space / garden and updated kitchen and in-unit Miele washer / dryer, that could provide $3,000 of monthly income.
The parlor floor is currently set-up as a grand floor-through unit with large kitchen and private outdoor space / garden.
The top two floors consist of a sun splashed 2-bedroom (could easily be made into a 3-bedroom) duplex unit that has a loft like feel with an open living / dining area with updated kitchen. The upper floor has two large master suites as well as an in-unit washer / dryer. The unit is topped off by a private rooftop with breathtaking views of Manhattan.
The options presented are limitless – keep the units for income or return over time to a triplex over an income-producing garden level unit, or even back to the house’s original configuration as a grand single-family residence.
In addition to being on a prime neighborhood block, 263 MacDonough is notable for being located just a short distance from the A express and C trains, as well as from restaurants and shopping that have given the community its distinctive character.
