File this one under things you won’t find in Brooklyn: This pretty, totally modernized 2,828 square-foot Queen Anne row house at 418 East 136th Street in the Bertine Block Historic District offers four bedrooms with room for more, and four stories of townhouse loveliness, all for the well-under-a-million price of $800,000. Caveats apply, of course: It’s a narrow house at only 14 feet wide, and single-family so no rental income if you live there. But The Bronx is the place to be if you’re looking for townhouse living for under a mil.

Named for developer Edward D. Bertine who built 10 Queen Anne style row houses here in the 1890s, the Bertine Block Historic District is as pretty as they come. This move-in-ready home has turn-of-the-century details galore, including inlaid parquet floors, decorative moldings and pocket doors, with a full helping of modern amenities. The single-family townhouse has four stories with additional space for another kitchen on the garden level, and plenty of sunlight throughout.

The bright, cleanly renovated kitchen leads to a terrace and a landscaped back yard for dining, entertaining and watching your garden grown. An equally bright and tastefully outfitted dining room is outfitted with a decorative fireplace, vintage lighting and built-ins.

This slender find is just twenty minutes to midtown Manhattan, and the neighborhood is as unique as the block itself.
