Welcome to 811 Halsey St. Built in 1899, this two-family Brooklyn brownstone, located in historic Bedford-Stuyvesant. The neighborhood is well known for the largest collection of intact and largely untouched Victorian architecture in the country with roughly 8,800 buildings built before 1900. This 18.75 X 45 two-family townhome was tastefully renovated a few years ago to highlight and marry its classical architectural elements common to Bed-Stuy brownstones with a modern sensibility. The owner’s duplex is charming, spacious and light-filled with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. There are four pristine fireplace mantles, a formal dining room, original wood pocket doors, and a staircase complete with wainscoting all of which were preserved during the comprehensive restoration of the 121-year-old property. Part the original wood shutters on the parlor floor, let the abundance of sunlight shine on the hardwood floors, and take in the beautiful view of lush Saratoga park. Feel free to offset your mortgage by renting out the downstairs unit. The garden apartment is an oversized 1 bedroom complete with an updated and open kitchen, renovated full bathroom, washer/dryer and a sprawling living space. Walk through the apartment and enter the perfectly manicured Garden. Complete with a large deck for hosting outdoor dinners and a fire pit for smores on those cozy autumn evenings. Lie in the hammock, read a good book or take one of those epic naps in total tranquility. Enjoy your morning coffee Brooklyn-style: on your front stoop. Sit with your four-legged friend and soak in the neighborhood’s morning vibe, while passersby gaze at your property’s classy curb appeal. You could even take a morning stroll in Saratoga Park, which is conveniently situated across the street. The beautifully maintained park is brimming with 120-year-old trees, a running path, playground and a load of greenery. The property is ideally located, only a couple blocks from the J train (Halsey St stop), an easy commute into Manhattan if needed. The house is also surrounded by great local restaurants, coffee shops, bars and a grocery store all added benefits. This is a unique property, perfect for a buyer looking to purchase a piece of history, in the center of it all, while enjoying that modern flare. Don’t miss the opportunity to view this amazing brownstone.
