The Bay Ridge, Brooklyn limestone townhouse at 229 87th Street isn't cheap, but it sure is stunning. Listed for $1,350,000, the four bedroom, two bath was built in 1901 and has lots of period charm, as well as modern upgrades. 

Features include 10-foot ceilings, restored hardwood floors, an original staircase, oversized barrel windows, skylights, and stained glass windows. (It's safe to assume the dog pictured is not included.) The only drawback we see is no bathroom on the first floor. 

There's incredible woodwork, even on the ceiling.

The formal dining room is equipped with a split A/C unit, and includes batten paneling and original built-in cabinet. The renovated kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and leads to a deck and a large back yard. 

All four bedrooms are upstairs, with two large enough for king-size beds. This floor also has a walk-through closet, and a renovated bathroom with original pocket doors and details. 

The finished basement looks like the ultimate (grownup) hangout space, with a chef's kitchen, full bathroom, and a washer/dryer. 

The townhouse is two blocks from the R train at 95th Street, and near shopping and eating options along Fourth Avenue and beyond; the popular Shore Road Park is also nearby.
