This turn-of-the-century brownstone at 165 Monroe St., on the border of Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy, has been fully renovated, but retains many of its original details. Listed for $2,600,000, the three family has a new electric system, boiler, windows, and split air conditioner system. Preserved features include parquet and pine floors, wood and plaster moldings, decorative fireplaces, a marble entryway and mahogany banister.

There's a two-bedroom, two-bath owner's duplex on the garden and parlor floors.

The custom kitchen has striking blue cabinetry and a large central island. The bathrooms are new and have custom tilework. 

There is private access to the garden on both levels of the duplex. 

The basement is partially finished, and has a rec room with original brick arches.

The top two floors have two-bedroom, floor-through apartments.

The kitchens have enough room for a dining table. 

One of the bedrooms is a few inches too small to be considered legal

The rental apartments are metered separately from the owner's duplex, and each have a vented washer/dryer hookup. 

 

The townhouse is well situated for convenience, with options for shopping and dining along several major avenues, including Classon, Bedford, and Nostrand. Additionally, the Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA is down the block. The A and C trains are seven blocks away at Nostrand Avenue, and the G at Bedford and Nostrand is a five-block walk.
