The townhouse is located on a tree-lined block near shopping and transportation. 


If you're in the market for a Brooklyn townhouse and don't mind heading out to Bay Ridge, 550 76th St. could be worth a look. Dating to 1910, the four-bedroom, two-bath barrel front townhouse is listed for $1,365,000. 

It looks to be in great shape, and many of the original features and details remain. Those include 10-foot ceilings, parquet floors with inlay designs, and stained glass skylights. 

The living room has bay windows, exposed brick, and a custom decorative fireplace. The dining room has a coffered ceiling, Lincrusta inlay wainscoting, and built-in cabinetry. 

The eat-in kitchen leads to an upper deck that also has an awning. (Looks nice, but what is going on with the floor?)

A renovated bathroom has a pocket door, radiant heat, and subway tile, as well as marble and a stained glass window. 

The bedrooms are a nice size. 


A renovated lower level has hardwood oak floors, tin ceilings, and a washer and dryer. 

A large fenced garden is on the ground floor. 




The townhouse is on a very charming tree-lined street, and is less than two blocks from the R train at 77th Street. It's also off of Fifth Avenue, which is loaded with shopping and eating options.
