If you're looking for space, a large yard, rental income and you don't mind lots of stairs, you should check out 207A Halsey St. in Bedford Stuyvesant. The six floor, two family is listed at $2,495,000, which is down $204,000 from the initial asking price from less than two months ago. 

The 1901 townhouse is 19 feet wide and 3,400 square feet, and has been fully-renovated. There's a five-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom owner's quadruplex and a two-bedroom, one-bath rental duplex, which the listing claims can command $3,000 a month in rental income. 

The owner's apartment is entered on the parlor floor, which has 10-foot ceilings and flows from the living and dining areas to the chef's kitchen. The kitchen features a marble island, stainless steel appliances, and doors to a full-width stone terrace that leads to the large back yard via stairs. 

The spacious master suite in on the second floor and features a windowed master bath with floor-to-ceiling marble, shower, and custom double vanity. The master has a walk-through closet which leads to an additional room that could be used as a nursery or den. Yet another room can be accessed through a pocket door off the bathroom. 


The third floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite), as well as a laundry room. One more floor up is the "penthouse," another space to be used as a bedroom, gym, or home office that opens to north- and south-facing decks. 

The ground floor rental is similarly designed and appointed. Described as a duplex, it looks like the only space on the lower basement level is a large rec area and room for utilities/storage.

Upgrades to the townhouse include hardwood walnut floors, multi-zone A/C, solid core doors, new windows, and a pre-wired sound system. 

The house is located directly across the street from an elementary/middle school and a playground, which could make for some noise. For transportation, the A and C trains are four blocks away at Nostrand Avenue, and shopping and popular dining spots can be found along Fulton Street and Tompkins Avenue.
