Unsurprisingly, home prices in Bedford Stuyvesant have soared over the last decade. Back in 2016, a Washington Post analysis found that prices in the neighborhood had increased 194 percent since 2004. And this brownstone’s sales history proves that trend: Listed now at $2.695 million, it was sold in late 2010 for $609,500.

The charming Neo-Grec-style townhouse—which was recently renovated—has seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, a cedar deck (ideal for al fresco dining, the listing says), and a landscaped garden. It comes with a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

Currently, the 3,600-square-foot house is set as a triplex with a separate top-floor rental apartment with two bedrooms, a bathroom, its own kitchen, and a living room area.

The three-story house was built around 1885 and has some charming interior details including a decorative fireplace, hardwood floors, large windows, its kitchen countertops made of natural quartzite stone and an original slate mantel in its master bedroom.

It’s located at 392 Jefferson Avenue between Tompkins and Throop avenues, close to several notable restaurants (including Peaches Hot House and Saraghina), as well as the C train at Kingston-Throop.

Taxes for the property are $354/month. Perri DeFino and Morgan Munsey of Compass have the listing.
