A chance to buy in heart of Bed-Stuy

kings view realty

The sprawling Brooklyn neighborhood known as Bedford-Stuyvesant, or Bed-Stuy, is comprised of two historically different areas, Bedford, and the historically more upscale Stuyvesant. Parts of the neighborhood are landmarked so the remarkable late-19th-century feel of this area will be preserved. You can expect to see rows of gracious brownstone homes on tree-lined streets, lots of open sky , and numerous historic buildings.

Named after the British Duke of Bedford and 17th century settler Peter Stuyvesant — is the birthplace of such luminaries as legendary singer and actress Lena Horne, famed film director Spike Lee, and comedian Chris Rock. These days new generations flock to the historic nabe, drawn by stunning properties that are magnets for buyers seeking truly special pieces of real estate — such as our House of the Week, a beautiful two family double duplex nicely appointed with upgrades that lists for $1.4 million and includes:

• Six rooms over five rooms

• Three bedrooms over two bedrooms

• Dining rooms

• Modern kitchens and bathrooms

• Full basement

• Located on a tree-lined street.

Bedford-Stuyvesant has been gentrifying since the late 1990s. Much of the area is already landmarked, with other stretches under consideration for future landmarking. Many would-be home buyers, priced out of other brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods, have found remarkable values in turn-of-the-20th-century brownstones in Bed-Stuy. As a result, young professionals are moving in, local entrepreneurs are opening businesses, and trendy boutiques and national chain stores are cropping up on avenues reclaimed as shopping depots, near residential streets that can offer lucrative opportunities for investment visionaries. Our House of the Week is within walking distance of the A and C trains, putting Manhattan minutes away and making our featured property the perfect destination for urbanites who work in the city but want to come home to Brooklyn.

That could be you — if you’re willing to make the call.
