On the same street in Bed Stuy but not in the historic district, a late 19th century brownstone has well preserved details, including the original stair, white-painted woodwork, striking carved wood mantels with colorful original tile and built-ins in the garden- floor kitchen. With a full bath on each floor, the two-family is configured as a duplex under a floor-through rental. While not every room is pictured, what is shown appears to be in move-in condition.

In Marine Park, a 1920s house with curb appeal and a garage needs work but has potential. The fully detached single-family has parquet and diagonal wood floors, side arched openings and the original stair. A sun room is open to the living room.

With original cupboards and a vintage sink-dishwasher combo, plus a breakfast nook, the kitchen could be a period charmer with some judicious updating. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a full bathroom. (A half bath is in the basement.)

The full bath appears to have original subway wall tile and porcelain hex floor tile, along with more recently added fixtures. A new owner might want to remove some dropped ceilings. The house last changed hands in the 1960s.
