This $1.35M Barrel-Fronted Bay Ridge Townhouse Is Definitely a Goldilocks Situation

May 27, 2016

If you’re dreaming of a townhouse in Brooklyn and you haven’t considered Bay Ridge, this 2,424 square-foot two story home at 654 76th Street might change your mind. With four bedrooms, tons of parlor living space, beautifully restored original details and a large, lovely and landscaped yard, there’s not much that isn’t just right about it.

Even the $1.35 million ask seems reasonable in this market, when expanding families are scrambling to find space they can afford. That said, the house last changed hands in 2012 for $625,000 (and we’re thinking the seller was probably happy with that number even then, especially since the home likely hadn’t been renovated).

654 76th Street Block

This single-family 1910 townhouse on a tree-lined street of similar homes has been recently renovated, from fresh paint and cool wallpaper to new appliances, but there are plenty of original details to enjoy, like stained glass windows, inlaid parquet floors, built-in curio cabinets and high coffered ceilings.

654 76th Street Living Room

The spacious and sunny living room overlooks the street through tall bay windows topped with original stained glass transoms that look as good from the outside as the inside.

654 76th Street Dining

The full dining room is highlighted by “Wythe Hotel” handscreened toile wallpaper by Flavorpaper, fretwork, built-in cabinetry and a gorgeous coffered ceiling, with gleaming parquet floors beneath.

654 76th Street Kitchen

The tastefully renovated kitchen offers tons of cabinets and worktop space. New finishes include a quartz countertop island, stainless steel appliances, recessed and pendant lighting and a new faux wood tile floor. Checking another “just right” box, the space has just the right size and layout for serious cooking, family gathering and formal dining and entertaining.

654 76th Street breakfast nook

In an extension overlooking the garden, a sunny breakfast nook is the perfect spot to enjoy a bowl of porridge.

654 76th Street Rear Facade

The 20-foot-by-53-foot garden has spaces for both planting and playing–and what looks like some very enviable basement access for garden storage.

654 76th Street Bedroom 2

Up an original Arts and Crafts staircase beneath a stained glass skylight are four bedrooms and a full bath. The master bedroom offers an enormous walk-in closet, and there’s plenty of storage space all around. A full basement is all set up with a laundry room and even more storage.

The R subway is just a few blocks away, so access to the rest of the city is a breeze.
