Are you looking for a turnkey opportunity to have more space, both indoor and outdoor? Perhaps the opportunity to live in a home, while generating income to offset your mortgage. Or maybe a suitable option for multi-generational living or cooperatively shared ownership.
260 MacDougal Avenue is a legal 2 Family townhouse, in the heart of Ocean Hill, bordering Bedford Stuyvesant and Bushwick. Built in 1899, and subsequently gut renovated, the property has 1,980 sq. ft. of living space, not including the finished basement. The building is 18 × 55 with 2 stories on a 100’ lot. For those interested in further expanding the property by adding another floor or extending the rear of the building, an additional FAR allows 2,394 sq. ft. that can be added, “as of right”.
This sun-drenched Ocean Hill home was gut renovated five years ago with a barrel-shaped brick façade and a fenced-in backyard. The house comes equipped with hardwood floors throughout, 12’ ceilings, open California style kitchens featuring stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and tiled backsplash, exposed brick, skylights, and fully renovated bathrooms and updated HVAC systems. A huge garden awaits your personal touch.
Perfectly divided into two separate units – a spacious three-bedroom, one-bath floor-through garden apartment, intricately tiled bathroom, a finished basement usable as recreational space complete with a wet bar, (easy to duplex with garden apartment), windowed laundry room with washer/dryer and equally sizable four-bedroom upper apartment featuring three skylights, and similar modernized features. The property will be delivered vacant upon closing. Taxes are $4,019/ yr.
Located on a tree-lined residential block, a 20-minute drive to Downtown Brooklyn, a 35-minute train ride to Manhattan, and a 25 minutes’ drive to JFK airport. The house is close to Marion Hopkinson Playground and is a short walk to Thomas Boyland and Saratoga Parks. Other neighborhood highlights within walking distance include Daily Press Coffee, Pita Point, Salud Bar & Grill, Tandori Masala, Simmer Down, MacDonough Café, and Lady Moo Moo Ice Cream.
The property is 3 blocks from the Rockaway Avenue C train and is 5 blocks from Broadway Junction station (A, C, L, J, and Z train).
