For those old house lovers who can’t afford to buy an entire old house, here’s a gorgeous pre-war rental in Bedford-Stuyvesant that’s loaded with details like fireplaces, high ceilings, woodwork, moldings, and a clawfoot tub. Occupying two floors of the townhouse at 464 Marion Street, the home also boasts three bedrooms, an office, media room, and formal dining room. And the best perk: a 20-foot-wide terrace with room for dining and a large grill.
The first level, which is also the townhouse’s parlor floor, accommodates a large living room, which flows into an 11-foot-wide media room. Behind 15-foot-long doors is the master bedroom, which has direct access to the deck.
The bright second level holds the kitchen, renovated with white and wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Off the kitchen is the formal dining room. Then, looking out onto Marion Street is one small bedroom and one large bedroom. The large bedroom comes with its own attached sitting room–which could be used as an office, too. This floor also has the bathroom with a clawfoot tub.
The deck, off the parlor floor, sits among the trees, which provide a nice canopy overhead. (Just don’t think about summer being almost over.)
As for the location, this townhouse is located on the north end of Bed-Stuy, close to the border of Bushwick. The closest main drag is Broadway and the nearest subways are the L at Bushwick Avenue and the A/C at Rockaway Avenue.
