Property Description


Unusually-large, Bay-fronted beauty!
279 Madison Street is a magnificent three (3) unit brownstone with 4,400 square feet of finished space plus a private yard.

Featuring 1,100 SF on EACH floor, this 20 x 55 home delivers living spaces which are almost 40% larger than an average 20 x 40 brownstone. Perfect for working from home. The top floor has windows on 3 sides and skylights. A roof deck here would be an amazing addition, with direct views of one of New York City's architectural master-pieces.

Valuable up grades included: fully finished rec room with wet-bar and full-bathroom, French drains (zero leaks in the basement from even the worst storms), new hot water tank, common laundry, and new white elastomeric roof covering.

Delivered vacant, each floor is sunny with high ceilings and large windows. This building only needs your finishing touches to operate as either a high-income rental, or live for free in one unit while renting the remaining two.

Located on Madison Street across from the famous Boys and Girls High School, you will enjoy the gorgeous view without any noise - school enters and exits on the opposite side. Madison Street is steps from the A/C at Nostrand.

Quick Profile

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.
