Welcome to 789 Lexington Avenue. A beautiful 2 family home in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The first floor is a 3 bedroom 2 bath owner duplexed with access to the large back yard. The top floor is a one bedroom, one bath rental unit. The top or garden level units can easily be converted as an owner's duplex with the parlor level. Each floor has been impeccably renovated incorporating reclaimed materials from the building itself during renovations.
General renovation to the house was undertaken from 2013 to 2015. The following was all new at the time of renovation: Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC. The entire house was plumbed for hydronic radiators with plans for a future boiler room on roof. Enlarged window openings to what the house was when it was built in the 1890's, with all new European energy efficient windows.
The parlor level has dark solid wood floors, with South and North facing windows overlooking the front and back gardens. A temporary sliding glass door/partition has been added to create bedrooms. An LG stacked washer/dryer is also on this floor.
The garden level has a concrete slab of over 2" of rigid foam insulation and vapor barrier with new vinyl floating floors. All custom millwork and built-ins. The kitchen island has a soapstone countertop with an Electric glass stove top and a 900 CFM exhaust kitchen fan all the way to the roof. The butcher block countertop is on the opposite side where the stainless steel farm sink is located. Shelves and countertops are made from reclaimed lumber (from the house). There are 4 sets of deep floor to ceiling closets on this floor as well as 2 pantries and a custom spice cabinet. There is also a small washer/dryer combo unit as well Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and refrigerator.
On the top floor, the original hardwood floors have been stripped and a high traffic European high solids oil/wax was applied for a restored timeless look. Incredibly spacious living/dining room connects you to a pass-through kitchen with customized kitchen cabinets and a combination of butcher block and granite countertops. Right across from the kitchen and next to the bathroom are floor to ceiling closets that are at least 24 inches deep. The massive bedroom has wall to wall closets and can fit a King size bed. It also has custom shelves and desks from reclaimed lumber (from the house).
All bathrooms have walk-in showers with European shower fixtures with rain-head showers and heated concrete floors.
This home is currently being rented for short term tenants (minimum 1 month) and has an annual net income of 85k. Low taxes of $474 per quarter.
