Aussie artist Jeremyville’s renovated Bed-Stuy brownstone asks $2.7M

April 8, 2019

This two-family townhouse at 408 Macon Street in Bed-Stuy‘s Stuyvesant Heights Historic District was renovated a few years ago by Australian expats Jeremy Andrew–the artist Jeremyville whose colorful feel-good graphics have a sizable following–and Megan Mair. The creative pair–she’s a creative director, curator and brand strategist–bought the home for $1.5 million in 2013, when it was divided up into three units. They gave it a top-to-toe renovation, as featured in Brownstoner. The 3,400-square-foot four-story Neo-Grec brownstone was built around 1880 by local builder Charles Isbill.

Up a grand stoop that still has its original newel post and railings,  a double parlor has two original wood and tile mantels, 11-foot ceilings and a pier mirror.

The pretty kitchen is downstirs on the garden level, which has a separate entry below the stoop. The kitchen is set up for functionality as well as good looks with a Bertazzoni range, Fisher and Paykel refrigerator and Silestone quartz countertops. A nod to the home’s history: The owners preserved the original stove. Off the kitchen you’ll find a deck and a landscaped garden.  Also on this floor is a library and a full bath.

This move-in ready home has the convenience of updated mechanicals including a new cast iron gas boiler and new chimneys. Located in the neighborhood’s sought-after historic district, there are plenty of local amenities, and the A express and C trains are just blocks away at Utica Avenue.
