A “museum-quality” townhouse in Bedford-Stuyvesant—specifically, within the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District—just hit the market for $2.5 million, and it’s chock full of period details like pressed tin ceilings and wooden trim, along with some spiffy upgrades.

The home is located at 63 Chauncey Street, and according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation for the historic district, it’s part of a stretch of approximately 20 houses that were all designed by Charles Infanger. This particular home has a limestone facade, an elegant stoop, and a small front yard—so, plenty of curb appeal.

Head to the backyard and you’ll find one of the home’s coolest aspects: The backyard, which has a bi-level deck with a seating area and trellis, and would be the perfect spot for summer parties.

The home itself is spread out over three levels, with a more formal parlor level that holds a sunken living room, formal dining room, and a garden level with a family room and home office. The parlor level is also where many of the historic details can be found, including a wood burning fireplace and ornate wooden trim.

The house also has three bedrooms—including a master suite with a large walk-in closet—and more modern architectural details, including a catwalk hallway and a large atrium with a skylight lets plenty of light in.
