This handsome twenty-foot-wide two-family Bay Ridge brownstone welcomes you up a graceful stoop into an airy, sun-splashed parlor level of the owner's duplex, which is graced with tall ceilings and classic turn-of-the-century accouterments.

Original inlaid parquet and hardwood floors and lovely details merge with contemporary flair within this distinctive home. A designer light fixture in the entry foyer draws you towards the adjacent living room, which showcases oversize bay windows, moldings and built-ins, and flows into an interior family room flanked with sconces. An enormous, windowed eat-in-kitchen is enhanced by a decorative mantle, breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances, including a Viking range. A door leads out to the deckoffering a perfect spot to linger over a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cocktailwith steps leading down to a serene, south-facing landscaped garden. A chic bathroom rounds out this level.

A stained glass skylight crowns the top of the staircase on the upper floor of the duplex where there are two large bedrooms, a den, a nursery (or additional space to work from home), a windowed laundry room and a full bath. The king-size bedroom has bay front casement windows and the rear bedroom overlooks the verdant garden below. The bathroom has been tastefully designed with a stained glass window and clawfoot tub.

The income-producing garden level offers a spacious living area, a bedroom and den, a windowed galley kitchen, an updated bathroom, and access to the patio and garden. The full-height basement below can be utilized for storage or updated for recreational use.

The townhome is nestled on a quiet side street, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

More about Bay Ridge

More about Bay Ridge

As evidenced by the mansions dotting the waterfront along Shore Road, as well as the eclectic mix of Victorian, Greek Revival, and neo-Renaissance architecture scattered throughout the neighborhood, Bay Ridge was one of Brooklyn's wealthiest areas at the end of the 19th century. Diversity is a key word in Bay Ridge, not just in terms of architecture: since the Dutch West India Company purchased the land from the Nyack Indians in 1652, the area has been home to many waves of immigrant populations, including Scandinavians, Greeks, Italians, Irish, and, more recently, Middle Easterners. Third Avenue, considered "restaurant row," is an homage to the neighborhood's diversity with its range of cuisines and mix of casual and upscale dining, along with a number of lively Irish Pubs. Bay Ridge also boasts majestic views of the bay and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge that links Brooklyn to Staten Island. There is no shortage of shopping in the neighborhood, especially on 86th Street. An almost suburban-like setting and a plethora of parks make Bay Ridge a popular choice for families.
