It's not cheap, but this four-story two family (used as a single family) in Bedford Stuyvesant is big, beautiful, and has a kitchen that may seduce serious cooks. Listed for $1,695,000, 798 Greene Ave.  has six bedrooms, two and a half baths, and pine and oak floors. 

The double parlor level has a wood-burning fireplace (which, judging from the big stacks of firewood, gets good use), as well as a small room that could be used as a study. 

On the garden level, there is an eat-in chef's kitchen with a stainless steel double-trough sink, a six-burner Garland stove with griddle and double oven, and a double-door glass display refrigerator. A statement-making island is made with a 150-year-old piece of reclaimed pine.  

This floor also has a powder room, and leads out to the garden in back. 

The third floor has two large bedrooms; it looks like one is being used as a living room area. There is also a small office space on this floor. 

A walk-in closet and full bath connect the two rooms; there is a third, smaller bathroom on this floor as well. 

The fourth floor has two more bedrooms, also connected by a full bath and walk-in closet, and there is a laundry room with front-loading washer and dryer on this level. 

The townhouse has updated mechanicals, and is three blocks from the J train at Kosciuszko Street; the A and C trains at Utica Avenue are about a 10 minute walk.

Popular spots in the area include Saringha for wood-fired pizza and Peaches for Southern comfort food.
