On a quiet, tree-lined South Slope block, this whimsically color-blocked wood-sided house at 317 12th Street was built in 1871. The legal two-family dwelling is currently configured as a five-bedroom single family home, but there’s potential for rental income. Comprised of three stories plus a sweet bedroom/playroom that spans the entire attic, the house, asking $2.299 million, has original details like marble mantles, tin ceilings, and parquet floors, plus a verdant back yard with a surprise addition.

On the ground floor is a cozy living room with an original marble mantle.

Also here is a large, tiled eat-in kitchen that faces the back garden. Alongside the kitchen are a pantry/ laundry room, a mud room and a half bath.

The parlor floor offers two large, sun-filled rooms which could be two bedrooms–one with en-suite bath–or kept as a study and second living room.

On the home’s third floor are two light-filled bedrooms, a small third room, and a full bath.

On the fourth floor, the home’s attic space has been transformed into a lovely, sunny garret. This large upper room would make a charming bedroom, studio or playroom.

The home’s lush back garden comes planted with lilac and raspberry bushes, flowering shrubs and herbs. The best surprise of all might be the rustic cabana tucked in the back of the yard. This little shelter would make a perfect writer’s retreat, art studio or potting shed–or a fabulous playhouse for the kids.
