Located on the grand, tree-lined Eastern Parkway, in the heart of Crown Heights, the barrel-front brownstone at 741 Eastern Parkway is waiting to greet you at the top of a private driveway! This regal two-family home, with an impressive 20x48’ footprint, extra deep front lot, original stoop and cornice, and a full-height round projecting bay makes a magnificent statement on a coveted landscaped block.
Turnkey-ready, this home has been tastefully renovated and restored, combining modern convenience with classic details. The original woodwork and millwork, pocket doors, and fireplace mantles are in excellent condition and exude old-world charm throughout the 3,024 square foot home. (If desired, the new homeowner may extend or build an additional 1,840 square feet) A large, privately-enclosed rear garden offers peaceful enjoyment or entertainment space, and private parking means never having to circle the block again.
Comprising 3 stories and a basement, the home’s layout boasts an owner's duplex, with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, and 2+ bedroom rental apt. The garden and parlor level duplex have split system units, includes a large master suite, with walk-in closet, original fireplace, and an en suite bath with marble tile, double vanity and huge glassed in shower. Two additional bedrooms, laundry, and a second full bath, with marble floor tiles and deep soaking tub, complete the garden level. Just up the stairs is the prized parlor floor, with 11 foot high ceilings and flanked by oversized bay windows on both northern and southern exposures, allowing natural sunlight to flow throughout the entire home. The deluxe eat-in kitchen features marble countertops, farmhouse sink, modern, open shelving, original fireplace, and a huge dining area that's ready for a party. There's also access to the expansive backyard. Read a book in the adjoining family room or play the piano in the spectacular front parlor, replete with mantles, coved ceilings, and original plaster medallions. The top floor is currently used as a beautifully renovated rental unit, complete with two more original fireplaces, and its own washer/dryer and dishwasher. The apt currently brings in $2800 per month. With a 20% down payment, your mortgage bill would only be $4000 a month.
You can move right into this gorgeous home that melds history with modern style in one of Brooklyn’s most historic and coveted neighborhoods. The location is exceptional, mere minutes away from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Brooklyn Children's Museum, and conveniently located across the street from the 3 train station at Kingston Ave., which brings you downtown in 10 minutes.
