This two-story row house in Crown Heights at 996 Saint Johns Place has plenty of space for family and friends without being too much house to handle. Asking $1.975 million, the barrel-fronted limestone facade looks out over a small front garden, and there’s lots more room in the back for al fresco activities. Interiors have been lovingly restored without being too fancy, and lots of old details remain.

The two-story home is a sizeable 20-feet-by-55-feet. The house is listed as multi-family, and one of the floor plans shows a kitchenette on the garden level, which has a separate entrance, so it’s possible that it could be used as an in-law suite or rental. Throughout the house are original moldings, Roman pillars, a pier mirror, pocket doors, a working Hearth Cabinet fireplace, original hardwood and parquet flooring. New additions include all new landmarks-approved windows and front doors, a new roof and new skylights.

The parlor floor is where all the action happens: You’ll find a formal living room, dining room, library, kitchen and full bath. The  open farm kitchen is functional, as wall as being casual and fun. Another plus: it faces the landscaped back garden.

Renovated baths have old details like a claw-foot tub as well as a modern walk-in shower.  A laundry room makes things even more convenient.

Lots in the Crown Heights neighborhood are an oversized 120 feet deep, making room for a 20-foot front garden and a 45-foot back garden. This is the last house on the block, meaning you get the extra perk of side windows for three exposures and excellent light.
