Possibilities abound at this completely detached, 3-family home in Kensington, just steps away from the border of Windsor Terrace. Built in 1920 and sitting on a large 45 x100 foot lot, the house features many original details, including molding, parquet floors, and stained-glass windows. Be the envy of all of your friends with your own private driveway, garage, and enough room to park 5 cars. The large front porch is the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The finished, full-height basement is enormous, and will take care of all of your storage and rec room needs. The spacious backyard will be your spot to relax and entertain.

Currently configured as three separate apartments, the choice is yours: keep it as is and generate a large rent-roll, convert to an owner's duplex with a tenant's apartment, or create a spectacular single-family home of more than 3,400 square feet.

The first floor consists of a large eat in kitchen, living room, one bathroom, and three bedrooms. The second floor is similar, along with a bonus room leading to a charming porch, perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. The top floor has a large eat-in kitchen, living room, and 2 bedrooms.

Located close to restaurants and shops on Fort Hamilton Parkway and Windsor Terrace, Historic Greenwood Cemetery, Kensington Stables, and Prospect Park. The F and G trains are just 3 blocks away.

More about Kensington

More about Kensington

Due to its proximity to Prospect Park, quiet residential streets, and relatively affordable housing options, Kensington has become an alternative to nearby neighborhoods such as Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, and Ditmas Park. The diverse population of Kensington includes Orthodox Jewish, Bangledashi, and Ukranian micro-communities. Kensington Stables and Prospect Park Tennis Center provide recreational activities. Church Avenue, McDonald Avenue, and Coney Island Avenue serve as the neighborhood's main commercial hubs. Tree-lined Ocean Parkway, which runs from bucolic Prospect Park to breezy Brighton Beach, showcases both pre-war and post-war apartment buildings and offers medians on each side of the street with benches along with bike and pedestrian paths.
