The listing calls this 1887 Bed-Stuy brownstone “Barbie’s Bohemian Bed-Stuy Dreamhouse,” and we can see why. Asking for $1,650,000, this three-story, single-family home on a tree-lined residential street has plenty of original details and lots of livable charm–including a pink fairytale kitchen and a tree-shaded backyard. With three bedrooms and space to create more, the Brooklyn townhouse offers plenty of opportunities to create your own dream house, or enjoy it as-is.

On the home’s garden floor you’ll find the bubblegum pink 1950s-style kitchen, complete with black-and-white tile flooring. Windows overlook the home’s backyard.

Also on this level is a formal dining room. The aforementioned yard is shaded by a mature silver maple tree and surrounded by a wood fence for privacy. Plenty of barefoot grass is a haven for kids and pets–or a canvas for your landscaping ideas.

On the home’s parlor floor you’ll find a suitably elegant townhouse living room and a large bedroom with an en-suite bath. Well-preserved and updated wood flooring and plaster ceiling moldings frame the rooms throughout.

On the third floor are two spacious bedrooms and several of the home’s many closets. The front bedroom features a room-sized, windowed walk-in closet/dressing room. A renovated bath is the perfect showcase for a gold-accented claw-foot soaking tub.

The charming brownstone facade features a tall stoop with original wrought-iron railings. Rose bushes are already in bloom in the front garden, promising to enliven the block in years to come.
