Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn is known for its stock of townhouses, many of which still retain incredible amounts of historic details. This one, at 17 Madison Street, has been renovated in a way that tastefully retains features like woodwork, parquet floors, marble mantlepieces and wainscoting. And beautiful interior design, on top of that, is the icing on the cake.

The house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex over a garden rental. The parlor floor is definitely the highlight, with high ceilings, red oak herringbone floors and wainscoting throughout. Sun streams through two tall windows in the front parlor into the living room then dining room. Surrounding the decorative fireplace in the dining room is custom, built-in shelving and cabinets repurposed from the home’s original wood beams. The wood looks particularly striking against the exposed brick.

The open kitchen is off the dining room, toward the back of the parlor floor. Lots of light gets in due to a large window and glass door that leads to a patio outside.

A staircase leads to the second floor, which holds two bedrooms. This floor has new white oak flooring, and the bedrooms are outfitted with one wood-burning fireplace and one decorative fireplace.

The top floor was transformed into a huge master suite, which has a separate sitting area and gas fireplace. French pocket doors open to a vestibule between the master bedroom, a large walk-in closet and the master bath. And the bedroom itself features yet another decorative fireplace.

Something quite unique to this master suite is a freestanding, clawfoot tub (set beneath two windows that overlook the townhouse garden) and a double-vanity sink. Who needs privacy when the whole floor is your own master suite? The rainfall shower, however, is located in a somewhat secluded, curved inlet off of the main room.

And here’s a look at the garden rental downstairs. Not quite as luxurious as a freestanding clawfoot tub in the master bedroom, but nice nonetheless.
