We may not think first of Bay Ridge when we think of barrel-fronted attached limestone row houses lining sun-dappled city blocks. But they do exist, and this one at 456 74th Street asking $1.575 million is a fine example. This turn-of-the-century townhouse is filled with meticulously restored original details like 10-foot ceilings, oak parquet floors with detailed inlaid borders, pocket doors and fluted oak columns while offering a modern kitchen and bath, basement family room and plenty of play space indoors and out.
On the parlor floor, a sunlit formal dining room features a coffered ceiling and original built-in cabinetry flanking double pocket doors.
Adjacent to the dining room is a well-appointed kitchen that opens onto a deck with steps descending to a landscaped private rear garden.
Fronting the living room are three six-foot-high original oak casement windows. You’ll also find a plaster ceiling medallion, decorative oak fluted columns and a detailed oak-paneled room divider. A parlor room features a decorative marble fireplace. Original stained glass skylights draw natural light down the home’s wide hallway and stairs.
On the second floor are four bedrooms of varying sizes, a built-in oak armoire and a spacious renovated full bathroom with marble details.
The home’s renovated lower level boasts a cozy family room, a full bathroom and a laundry room, perfect for a guest suite.
