Crown Heights Townhouse Unit With Console Mirror, Fretwork, Dishwasher Asks $3,000


Built as an apartment around the turn of the last century, this top-floor pad has a flexible layout with six rooms, original character, and an updated kitchen with a dishwasher. It’s in a bow-fronted townhouse in the Weeksville section of Crown Heights that has been in the same family since 1982.

The circa 1900 golden-brick house at 1385 Park Place is an original two-family with brownstone trim, a low stoop, and a swag- and wreath-adored metal cornice. Original details inside the floor-through apartment include high ceilings, a console mirror, fretwork, moldings, six-panel doors, and built-ins.

Configured with a double parlor in front, dining room with beamed ceiling and kitchen in the rear, the layout also includes an interior bedroom with two original built-in wardrobes. A smaller bedroom over the front door has a closet and can fit a twin bed.

It all looks very well maintained, with new wood floors in the main rooms and tile in the hallway and kitchen. With a window, original wainscot molding, and tin ceiling, said kitchen has been updated with wood cabinets, a stone counter, tile backsplash, microwave, and dishwasher.

A photo in an old listing shows a standard modern bathroom with tub and beige tile. While there is no floor plan, the unit appears to have five closets, including one in the smallest bedroom, a niche topped with a cupboard in the hall, and a recently added double wide closet in the rear room (visible in an old listing).

Listed by Compass agent JoAnn McFarlane Ebanks, the apartment is priced at $3,000 a month. Worth it?
