Description

This stunning two-bedroom, convertible three-bedroom, Bed-Stuy duplex provides retreat-like living in heart of the city with great sunlight, expansive living spaces and a glorious 500 sq ft of private yard.
Abundant light and airiness welcome you home in this 1,675-square-foot home's expansive upper level. In the spacious living/dining room, chic wide-plank hardwood paves the floors and exposed brick adds warmth. Entertainers and cooks will love the flexibility and convenience of the spacious open kitchen where glass-front cabinetry, stone counters, a moveable center island and stainless steel appliances provide effortless ease. A powder room and home office line the hallway of the sprawling 65-foot-long upper floor, and at the rear, you'll find a large and tranquil bedroom beautifully outfitted with a large closet and a wall of custom floor-to-ceiling built-ins. Enjoy direct access to the spacious rear yard and a well-appointed marble full bathroom just next door.
Downstairs, a sprawling tiled bedroom suite provides more delightful backyard views, a private full bath, an enormous walk-in closet and convenient in-unit washer-dryer. Just outside, covered in pavers and bordered by fencing and flower beds, the lovely private yard delivers an ideal space for outdoor lounging and entertaining. Either level of this roomy home could easily accommodate a third oversized bedroom without sacrificing space. And, tax abatement in effect until 2030 makes this stunning, expansive home an especially attractive opportunity in the heart of residential Brooklyn. The building is also going to an upgrade in which all the windows are being replaced with well insulated brand new windows within the coming months.

197 Spencer Street is a handsome limestone and brick boutique condominium building set on a tree-lined street. Residents of the pet-friendly building enjoy virtual doorman service, live-in superintendent and storage. Located at the intersection of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill, you're at the heart of exciting Brooklyn living. Local favorite dining spots Speedy Romeo, Peaches, Mekelberg's, Sugarhill and Rustik Tavern are all nearby, and abundant local parks and playgrounds provide lush outdoor space, including Herbert Von King and Fort Greene parks and the lovely Pratt Institute Sculpture Garden. The G train is just minutes from your door and A/C service is less than a mile away, providing easy access to the rest of the city.
