A four-bedroom Bay Ridge home hit the market this week for $1.35 million. The chic row house at 229 87th Street perfectly blends old and new, mixing pre-war styles with modern upgrades. The coffered ceilings, skylights, restored hardware floors, batten paneling, and original built-in cabinets are enough to make any New Yorker seriously consider moving to the South Brooklyn neighborhood. The less-dense area often allows homes to have real backyards, and this property, which also comes with a spacious deck, is no exception.
The home boasts a natural-vibe, with lots of wood features, found from the hardwood floors to the windows and coffered ceilings. The arched doorways, original staircase, and stained glass really cement this home’s status as a pre-war gem.
The formal dining room can be found on the first floor, with walls covered in a batten paneling. This space features a split unit a/c and those stunning ceilings.
Nearby is a renovated kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances and a dishwasher. Just off the kitchen sits the deck. From there, find the backyard with greenery and more places to dine al fresco.
All four bedrooms can be found on the home’s second floor. While only two of them, according to the listing, can fit a king size bed, all of the bedrooms let in lots of natural light. Other highlights from this level include a walk-through closet and a renovated bathroom with an original pocket door.
Another feature unique to outer-borough homes is a finished basement. This home’s basement has a second chef’s kitchen, a living area, a full bathroom, and can be accessed through a separate entrance. Additional perks are the washer/dryer and split unit A/C.
The property sits just two blocks from the R train at 86th Street station, as well as plenty of restaurants and coffee shops.
