This $1.65M Crown Heights Townhouse Wants A Makeover

New, 16 comments


The last few years have seen an abundance of renovation single family townhouses and brownstones come to market in neighborhoods like Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, and in a few years, we'll likely be seeing the same thing in Crown Heights. StreetEasy shows dozens of listings for outdated, multi-family townhouses in the gentrifying neighborhood, the newest of which is this four-story house at 698 Saint Marks Avenue between Rogers and Bedford Avenues. Listed for $1.65 million, the house has gorgeous historic bones—decorative fireplaces, bay windows, pocket doors, intricate woodwork, antique fixtures, built-in credenzas, wainscoting detailing, central display cabinets—but it also has less lovely things such as bright red and green walls and vinyl kitchen floors. It's also currently configured as multiple units, but it will be delivered vacant.
