Retain the original facade and interior details (fireplaces, banisters, moldings, pressed tin tiles, claw-foot bathtubs) or start fresh with this two-family brick brownstone in Stuyvesant Heights within Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Built circa 1899, 601 Halsey Street is situated on an approximately 17.5-foot-by-100-foot lot with a back garden.
Perfect for a developer or for an end user to create a spacious townhome or to maintain the two-family layout for additional rental income, 601 Halsey Street currently features two apartments. Entrance to the primary apartment is up the front stairs (with storage underneath) and through a vestibule to the parlor floor with high ceilings, large windows, a full bath, a half bath and two fireplaces. The upper floor has a full bath with a skylight, a skylight above the staircase and two fireplaces. From the front patio, there is a separate entrance to the street-level garden apartment--a large studio with a full bath, a fireplace , a large storage room and a windowed, eat-in kitchen with access to the expansive rear fenced-in garden. There is also a large below-grade storage cellar, with access from an inside stairwell and also from the front patio hatch door.
