Bay Ridge Showstopper — this 2-family barrel-front home on a classic tree-lined block is exceptional in every way! Boasting a generous amount of living space graced with fantastic pre-war details, the highlight of this property is an extraordinary ~148′ deep lot with South-facing rear yard that has been beautifully manicured with flowering gardens, a stately maple tree, lush lawn area, and a semi in-ground pool with customized decking as well as a terrace off the kitchen and additional patio area that are ideal for summer cook-outs. This gem has an abundance of pre-war characteristics, including gorgeous hardwood floors and woodwork throughout; tin ceilings; picture, ceiling and floor molding; high ceilings; exposed brick; and stained glass skylights, among others. The home has a classic 6-rooms, over 5-rooms footprint, with spacious bedrooms (two of which have customized closet built-ins) and a full bath on each level, allowing for a flexibility of layout options. The garden level – which has private street access as well as access to the rear yard — was also excavated to maximize ceiling height and finished to provide additional living space; the home’s up-to-date utilities are also housed on this level as is the laundry and large work-shop area. Incredibly convenient location, nearby to shopping, neighborhood amenities, and transportation.
