There’s much that can be said about this expansive Bay Ridge house, so let’s get right to it. First things first, the Tudor-like home has a hefty $3.488 million price tag but once you get past that, the it offers some pretty decent luxuries.
Across its four levels, there are five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a finished basement. Built in 1925, a recent gut renovation brought a touch of modernity into the space but it nods to its 20th-century charm. A huge wood-burning fireplace complements the open living/dining room with the massive open chef’s kitchen, featuring granite counters and top-of-the-line appliances, following right behind it.
Many homes tend to boast ultra-modern interiors with just a splash of its original characteristics left behind. That is not the case with this home. In fact, aside from the kitchen and bathrooms, this might just be one of the humblest renovations that a nearly $3.5 million space offers. Practicality and functionality seemed to outweigh aesthetic, as the listing description highlights the new amenities that include central air conditioning/heat with the option for steam heat, a Wi-Fi thermostat, security system, and the impressive four-car garage.
Judging from the exterior photo, it looks like there is a terrace on the second floor, though it’s not specified on the floorplan. There’s also a sizable backyard and a well-manicured front lawn.
