Built in 1890, this townhouse at 639 Macon Street in Bed-Stuy has done a nice job of preserving some historic details while also completing a full designer renovation. Contemporary finishes and bright, open rooms now highlight both the three-bedroom owner’s residence that occupies the home’s top three floors, as well as the two-bedroom, income-generating rental on the garden level. For all this, the house is asking $2,695,000.

This unique Bed-Stuy cottage is full of surprises right from the start. The cast-iron railings lend way to a New Orleans-style balcony, made even more inviting with flower boxes and hanging planters. The large metal double doors on the first floor were salvaged from the Domino Sugar Factory, and there are historic cast-iron supports and wooden ceiling beams inside. And with the efficient two-story layout, the $950,000 asking price is just right.
