In Stuyvesant Heights, this beautiful brownstone was fully gut renovated and restored to perfection by Shakespeare Gordon Vlado Architects. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of historic details. From stained glass transom windows to tons of tracery to delicately carved moldings, the home is dripping in elegant 19th-century architecture. For the 21st century, there’s a large skylit extension on two floors and more than 5,000 square feet of living space, including a garden-level rental unit. All of this and more is asking $3,950,000.

Asking $1,995,000, this Bed-Stuy townhouse at 781 Putnam Avenue is set up as an owner’s duplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment. Though the home was built in 1901, it’s been completely restored and renovated, resulting in a beautiful backdrop for the current owner’s art and contemporary furniture collection. The rear deck and backyard have also been done with a creative sentiment, offering a laid-back oasis.

Architect Daniel Libeskind, perhaps best known for the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the World Trade Center master plan, is one step closer to completing his first building in New York City. The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) announced that they have secured financing for an all-affordable senior housing building in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy designed by the starchitect. The 190-unit Atrium at Sumner will be built on NYCHA’s Sumner Houses campus, with construction set to begin later this month on the $132 million project. The 11-story building will meet Passive House standards and feature a community garden, a year-round indoor garden, and a central atrium.

Built in 1879, this Italianate rowhouse in Bed-Sty “has been meticulously restored while incorporating a modern flair,” as the listing describes. TBo architects oversaw a rear extension that extends to all four floors, while Townhouse Therapy renovated the interiors. Now on the market for $3,895,000, the nearly 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom home has unique industrial bones, including natural wood tones almost everywhere you look, original brick walls, and exposed concrete columns and beams. But to soften the look, the decor has a modern, Scandinavian feel. There’s also an income-generating garden-level apartment.
