Abundant natural sunlight is the star of this spacious, semi-detached single family home with a deck, backyard, private driveway, and garage at 47 Bay Ridge Parkway. Whether it’s the variety of recreational activities available at Bay Ridge’s coveted waterfront parks you seek or express coach-style buses to Manhattan, both are only about a block away.
This lovingly maintained house has been in the same family for over 60 years* and is comprised of about 3000 square feet of usable space with 4 bedrooms plus study, 2.5-bathrooms, and an English-basement. The home has great bones, a nice flow, and can be occupied while you make upgrades to your personal taste. The sprawling south-facing living room perfect for entertaining boasts four large windows and an archway between the living space and dining area maintains the open flow while creating two distinct spaces. The dining room features an original stained glass window and is accessible to a modern 3/4 bathroom.
The mid-century, “arts and crafts” style eat-in-kitchen with brand new dishwasher, features quality-crafted wooden cabinets that provide generous storage and plenty of workspace for preparing meals. A deck off the kitchen, large enough for a grill and dining set, leads to a yard perfect for gardening and outdoor entertaining on warm summer nights.
One floor up are three well-apportioned bedrooms, including a spacious south-facing primary bedroom with two closets and a charming, vintage-style windowed bathroom with double vanity. Beautiful original parquet floors add warmth and charm throughout the second floor.
The finished attic features hardwood floors and pitched ceilings high enough to comfortably use as two additional rooms for working from home and overnight guests, while also providing extra storage with three more closets. The English-basement, which can be closed off for separate access from the driveway, is currently used for storage and laundry, but it has a windowed half bath and can easily be finished as an open recreational space or divided into two windowed rooms.
47 Bay Ridge Parkway is located in Bay Ridge, a Brooklyn waterfront community that offers small town charm and a friendly neighborhood vibe, while still being accessible to big city amenities and resources. It is convenient to the subway, express bus, top-rated restaurants, charming shops, an array of specialty markets and grocery stores, well-regarded schools, playgrounds, a botanic garden, and an abundance of parks and outdoor recreation, including cycling, fishing or running along the promenade, tennis, basketball, baseball, soccer, and more!
