The building is four floors, and has three apartments. 


This Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone has three apartments total, making that mortgage payment a little easier thanks to rental income. Listed for $1,795,000, 328 Jefferson Ave. is a five-bedroom, four-bath house that measures over 3,000 square feet. 

The owner's duplex is on the parlor and garden levels. Its top floor features a spacious living room area with large windows and a mantel with wood carvings. 

The bright garden level has a renovated kitchen with significant cabinet space, two full bathrooms and the master bedroom. The brownstone's back yard is accessed on this level and there is a washer/dryer here as well. 



The second and third floors have two apartments—a one bedroom, and a two bedroom, which are described as in "good" condition, so they may need some work. (There aren't a lot of photos, so an in-person visit should be quite informative, but lots of light from northern and southern exposures is described.) 


The A and the C trains are a few blocks away at Kingston and Throop avenues, and many options for shopping and nightlife can be found down the street at Tompkins Avenue and along Nostrand Avenue.
