While waterfront neighbor Red Hook was recently named Brooklyn’s most expensive neighborhood despite the challenges it presents when it comes to public transportation, easy-to-reach Sunset Park remains slightly out of the spotlight despite steady investment and growth. Blocks of historic row houses have long ago left the realm of bargain buys, but there’s still an air of the undiscovered. This three story, three-family, four-bedroom-plus-apartment property at 425 45th Street is a prime example of Sunset Park perfection, and at $1.5 million seems downright affordable given what the average two-bedroom apartment commands a mere two subway stops away.

While the house is only three stories, it still beats the average apartment at 20 feet wide. While it may need some some work to make it your dream home, there are plenty of historic details to work with. The house has been loved by the same family for over 50 years, which means floors are still lovely and moldings remain intact. The home is currently configured as a four-bedroom owner’s duplex over a one bedroom garden rental; it would be easy to regain the garden unit and create a spacious single-family space. As-is, the house has plenty of style and looks move-in ready, starting with a charming parlor floor possessed of sunny south-facing bay windows and high ceilings.

The living room opens to a moody and elegant formal dining room.

A bright windowed kitchen and a half bathroom are on this floor as well. Light and functional, it’s a break from the average cookie-cutter kitchen.

One flight up are four bedrooms and  a full bathroom. The south-facing master is king-sized and offers a lounge/office/nursery area.

The garden level of this home has more charming details and, best of all, that Brooklyn bonus: a back yard. A large basement can be accessed from both units and is currently being used for storage. The postcard-perfect row house block is near the park and less than a block from the subway.
