Built near the turn of the 20th century, this three-story, two-family brick home at 457 Ovington Avenue in Bay Ridge proudly displays many exterior architectural details often lost in newer construction. And those exquisite details happily reflect what you can expect to see after you walk in the front door.



Standing majestically on a huge 2,800-square-foot lot, much of this $1.65 million residence’s original interior splendor is completely intact, including pocket doors, stained glass windows, mantels, chandeliers and sconces, pier mirrors, built-in cabinetry, a soaring ten-foot ceiling and ionic columns on the parlor floor, and gorgeous hardwood floors.



The generously–sized garden rental on the first floor has a nearly 300-square-foot living room off of which a small conservatory offers a sweet escape from the day’s stresses. A spacious owners’ duplex occupies the uppermost floors. Spread out and enjoy a large kitchen, formal dining room, living room, multiple dens, an oversized family room, and four bedrooms, with the master featuring a private sunroom.


And whether you opt to maintain this rare gem as two separate dwellings or choose to easily convert it into a grand one-family residence, rest assured parking will never be an issue thanks to a private driveway and three-car garage.
