Bed-Stuy is a Brooklyn neighborhood that’s known for its stock of historic townhouses with incredible interior details. Here’s one at 724 Macon Street, on the market for $1.299 million. The listing brags that the details are in “museum quality condition,” and looking through the photos we’d have to agree. If you’re someone who likes old homes, you will want to check out the extensive woodwork throughout the interior.
The carved wood around the central staircase, the windows, the mantles, and the doors is simply to die for. It looks like a beautiful dark mahogany, although the listing doesn’t say. All of the wood trimmings are paired with the original wood floors. In total, the house has four bedrooms, two bathroom, and 2,430 square feet.
Those are the original window shutters, as well. The fireplace mantles are elaborate and accented with marble and tile. Who wouldn’t want a living room like this?
The dining room is also beautiful, with another elaborate fireplace and the original sliding wood doors. The ceiling medallions add a nice touch, too.
In case you were wondering if every room was outfitted with wood detailing, the kitchen comes as a letdown. A more modern renovation left this space quite underwhelming. It leads out to a private backyard, although there are no photos of it. Overall, we’re still impressed with the property and the majority of details left intact.
