Sitting on a 40' x 125' lot, the main house boasts over 4,600 square feet, plus available air rights (approx. 10,000 square feet total) to expand up and sideways to more than double the building's existing size.

The carriage house has been neatly restored with lighting and electricity and new windows, and it doubles as a garage, workshop, and/or home office.

The current Certificate of Occupancy designates the property as an SRO. The property will be delivered VACANT with Certificate of Non-Harassment - a blank canvas ready to convert to a number of possible configurations. Architect's zoning and code analysis has determined possible scenarios from 1-2 Family mansion to a 6-unit rental or condo conversion. But bring your architect & contractor to explore your own vision! While surrounded by the beautiful Crown Heights Historic Districts, this lovely block itself is not landmarked, increasingly the possibilities for development.

Currently configured as one 2-bedroom apartment, 4 studios, and 2 one-bedroom apartments, the property has been renovated & restored lightly over the past few years to improve the kitchens & bathrooms, and retain original details wherever possible. The house features a front porch, pier mirrors and carved sitting bench in the entryway, pocket doors, 12' ceilings in the parlor, 12' ceilings & arched brick columns in the basement, original parquet floors, oak flooring, wainscotting throughout, as well as 5 original mantles. The unattached eastern exposure has 13 windows. There is a mansard and flat roof. There is a curb-cut for the driveway and room for 3 car parking between the main house and carriage house.

Designed by architect E.G.W. Deitrick, built in 1891, this property was the private home of builder Stephen M. Randall, whose family kept horses in the stable until 1908 after they purchased their first car.

Now available on the open market for the first time in over 60 years, don't miss this opportunity for end-users and developers alike to write the next chapter in the history of this unique property.
