Although Gravesend is a neighborhood way out in South Brooklyn, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good place to find a deal. In fact, the area is known for its multi-million dollar real estate because of its large Sephardic Jewish population–homes near synagogues and Jewish Community Centers have asking prices that soar into the millions. This house at 8738 23rd Avenue is asking nearly $1.5 million. It’s a freestanding four-bedroom property with a funky, cottage-like exterior and a few interior quirks.

The first floor is graced with a grand living and dining room–the sitting room off the entrance is decorated by a stone-faced, wood-burning fireplace. A striking black staircase leads you upstairs.

The kitchen, also on the first floor, has been recently remodeled. It’s got a stone wall that mirrors that stone fireplace in the entryway.

With such a large home (around 2,448 square feet) you get a bonus living room located upstairs.

The attic has been transformed into a recreation room. Downstairs, a finished basement holds even more livable space, with its own kitchenette.

The master bedroom has its own customized walk-in closet, plus a dressing area.

A big perk to living out in suburban Brooklyn? Stuff like a newly-paved front driveway, a carport for three vehicles, and this private travertine backyard. It’s been decked out with a custom built-in masonry gazebo, planters, and even an outdoor kitchen. This home is even pretty close to a subway, about a five minute walk from the D train at Bay Parkway Station.
