Brooklyn’s Albemarle Road has long been regarded as one of the most livable areas in all of New York City. The street, split by a boulevard from Coney Island Avenue to Buckingham Road, was once described by the New York Times as “one of the grandest,” of NYC’s residential roads and was thrust into the limelight in 2015 when actress Michelle Williams moved into a $2.5M Colonial in the area.
Williams’ Albemarle Road home was in need of renovations when she took possession, however this historic seven-bedroom pre-war residence on the same street–which recently hit the market for $2.25M–is ready for any would-be buyer to move in. Like many homes in the area, the single-family dwelling offers amenities one might come to expect in suburbia, such as a porch, wrap around terrace, garage, basement and 6,000 sq. ft lot, but is just a short jaunt from the B/Q subway lines.
Other features of the house include an open mud room entry, a large living room, two full bathrooms, a dining room and an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The listing also makes mention of a “basement with unlimited potential,” and half bathroom and a large backyard offering “endless landscape possibilities.”
This residence, located at 912 Albemarle Road, is certainly pricy at $2.25M but unlike Williams’ $2.5M fixer upper, it’s ready for its new buyers to take possession immediately.
