The townhouse's lush garden is well established with flowering perennials. 


On the market for only the third time since its construction in 1905, it's easy to see why past residents stuck around at 234 Seeley St. in Windsor Terrace.

Listed for $2,100,000, the two-family townhouse has an owners' duplex, with one bedroom plus a den, and a two-bedroom rental. The description notes that you could remove a wall and the rental apartment kitchen to make a three- or four-bedroom single-family if you'd like. 

There are original details throughout, including stained glass, high ceilings, moldings, and a claw-foot tub.

The house has a brick facade and a covered front porch.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been recently renovated, and the roof, boiler, windows, and appliances are all recently updated. 

In back, the big yard includes a brick patio and an extensively landscaped garden with a koi pond and flowering perennials. 

The house is a half a block from Prospect Park, and a short walk to the modest commercial strip on Prospect Avenue. The nearest subway stop is the F and G station at Fort Hamilton Parkway, which can also has an entrance on Prospect Avenue.
