116-Year-Old Bushwick House Comes With a Modern Twist

New, 9 comments


When this townhouse at 716 Bushwick Avenue was built in 1899, it was probably a pretty grand house by the neighborhood's standards. These days, it fits right in with the Bushwick of 2015. The Renaissance Revival-style building currently serves as a two-family house—don't be fooled by the door painted on its facade—and has been altered in its 116 years to include such quirky details as a garret kitchen for a hobbit, a darkroom, and a graffiti-sheathed basement that the brokerbabble bills as "true to the artistic energy of Bushwick." The townhouse still contains a lot of its original details, though, like mantles and chandeliers, and some 34 five-paneled doors. The townhouse, also eyed by 6sqft, is on the market for $1.98 million.
