On street level, 222 Madison Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant appears to be a modest single-story garage. As you go beyond the garage however, the site reveals one of New York City’s most unique homes—a two-story hidden gem spanning 3,000 square feet.
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is now on the market for $1.895 million, and is located at the corner of Nostrand Avenue and Madison Street in Bed-Stuy. Now on to some of the standout features of this home.
The space past the garage opens up into the kitchen which comes with a Bosch dishwasher, a Carrara marble island, and stainless steel countertops and cabinets. The dining room is right beyond that and sits under a lovely skylight (don’t miss the taxidermy Peacock in this space). The living room is just past the dining room and overlooks the rustic atrium/backyard area.
Up a half a flight of stairs, the home offers a little work/study platform, and more steps on either side lead to the two bedrooms at the opposite ends of the home.
Currently, the second level space on the left seems to have been setup as a children’s room/den. The master bedroom, on the other side comes with a balcony, a walk-in closet, and an attached master bathroom that has a soaking tub, and a shower.
The current owner purchased this home in 2011 for $865,000, property records reveal, but it was the owner prior to that that had this garage converted into a single-family home, Department of Buildings records reveal.
In case you’re curious, here’s what the home looks like from the front:
