Quintessential Renaissance Revival brownstone designed in 1897 by noted Brooklyn architect Axel Hedman. His homes are an important part of the landscape of Bedford Stuyvesant and other Brooklyn neighborhoods. Hedman tailored his designs to each neighborhood and added touches that make these exceptional houses stand out amidst their neighbors. Now you have the opportunity to add your personal touch and transform this architecturally significant property into your dream home!
231 Decatur Street is a masterpiece nestled in the Stuyvesant Heights historic district, on one of its most coveted blocks. This exemplary barrel-fronted townhome features a classic Hedman interior, rich with Colonial Revival details such as deep rounded bay windows, classical columns and pediments, arched doorways, and wainscoting. The interiors have been designed to provide a feeling of openness and grand proportion.
The lower duplex offers exclusive access to a lovely backyard and full-height basement with storage space and laundry facilities. This apartment offers gorgeous original detail, tall ceilings, renovated open kitchen and bath, and a flexible floor plan. The third and fourth floors each feature an updated two bedroom apartment, with large barreled bay windows, gorgeous decorative fireplaces, and other historic detailing. The top floor unit includes an in-unit washer/dryer.
This property is a fantastic investment opportunity, as this area of Brooklyn continues to thrive. This house is unparalleled, whether you are looking for rental income or to create your own showstopping home. Building upgrades include recent conversion to gas heat with a newly-installed furnace, upgraded electrical, and renovated kitchens and bathrooms throughout. When you step outside 231 Decatur Street, you'll find the neighborhood institution Peaches right around the corner, as well as the sleek coffee bar & cafe Skal. Nearby is the ever-popular Saraghina, and too many other fab eateries, bars and cafes to name. All within close proximity to the A / C train for easy access to other Brooklyn destinations and Manhattan.
