There’s so much to love about this 4,100-square-foot, four-story limestone townhouse at 271 Stuyvesant Avenue we hardly know where to start. For lovers of historic homes, this 1890s townhouse has a bounty of intact original details on every floor, from fireplaces to inlaid parquet floors to moldings and wainscoting. It’s in a great corner spot in the prized Stuyvesant Heights historic district, the Bed-Stuy neighborhood known for its rows of architecturally notable brownstones and limestones. There’s outdoor space and a deck; use the garden-level apartment for extra income (or live in the lower unit, with the yard and finished cellar).

But perhaps the most rare blessing of this property is that proceeds from the sale of the $2.795 million home will “enable the launch of a non-profit creative residency for marginalized youth,” founded by the current owner, renowned photojournalist and Guggenheim Fellow Brenda Kenneally.
