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.

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.
