No one needs 13 reasons why this Brooklyn townhouse is worth a double-take. The two-family residence at 720 Decatur Street has been renovated from top to bottom — you could even call it perfectly written and produced. The 2,268-square-foot home has been listed for $1.495 million by current owner Tommy Dorfman, the writer and actor who played Ryan Shaver in the hit Netflix series “13 Reasons Why,” as reported by WWD.
The listing is held by Tyler Whitman of Triplemint, who extols both the gut renovation and interior design of the property, as well as the idea of buying and living in Bed-Stuy. This home lies in the neighborhood’s Ocean Hill section.
“Buyers are always surprised at how stunning the area is,” Whitman says. “Tree-lined streets, historical brownstones, and great dining and coffee shops are just a few of the wonderful things that Bed-Stuy residents are surrounded with every day. And for the price of a 1-bedroom in Manhattan, you get to live in a multi-level, huge 3-bedroom home with a deck and garden, a 2-bedroom rental unit, and fully finished basement.”
Priced at $659 per square foot, the listing does represent a huge value for anyone looking for more room along with rental income and outdoor space.
The main floor contains an open kitchen, spacious living room and dining nook. The home also features a security system, central air and custom lighting. Large windows overlook a private, landscaped garden.
Upstairs you’ll find three large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two skylights. There’s a brand-new washer and dryer and incredible natural light throughout.
The garden level is a renovated 2-bedroom rental unit, currently valued around $2,500 per month, with a tenant in place who is interested in renewing. The finished basement has been divided to be shared between the rental unit and the upstairs duplex.
Fans of “13 Reasons Why” will recall that Dorfman played the role of Ryan Shaver in Tape 8 of the series. Shaver is the editor of the school magazine “Lost and Found,” and publishes a poem by the series’ main character, Hannah, without her consent. Selena Gomez was one of the producers of the series, which has been renewed for a second season with a launch date in 2018.
