Who wouldn’t want to live in one of Bed Stuy’s quintessential rehabbed rowhouses on one of its most beautiful streets? The neighborhood that churned out such American gems as Chris Rock, Jackie Gleason, Bobby Fischer, and the late Aaliyah is now offering a two-family townhouse brimming with original detail for $1.425 million. And everyone is sure to love this 2,508-square-foot beauty at 470 MacDonough Street.
The three-story townhouse has five fireplaces, stained glass accents, original hardwoods, ceiling medallions, shutters, beautiful moldings, and pocket doors. Lovingly renovated by the previous live-in owner, the six-bedroom home is now sporting new electrical wiring and windows, along with a new façade and renovated kitchens and baths.
The lush landscaped backyard is ideal for everything from social gatherings to sunbathing, while an Ipe wood fence creates a secure enclosure for Spot or little Timmy to run freely.
470 MacDonough Street was featured on the Bedford Stuyvesant House Tour in 2013. It’s conveniently located four blocks from Saratoga park, with easy access to parking and hot spots like Peaches, Seraghina, Brunswick, Doc D’s Bakery, and Georges-Andes.
