On one of the most desirable blocks in Bedford Stuyvesant is an exquisite 1890s two-family brownstone beauty. Built by Wilfred “Lucky 13” Burr & designed by architect Amzi Hill, 740 Macon Street has been lovingly restored over the past 20 years by the current owners. This grand yet intimate home offers an abundance of original details including arched windows, six fireplaces with authentic tilework, parquet & hardwood floors with contrasting inlay, wooden shutters, pressed tin ceilings, pocket doors, pier mirror, egg & dart molding & intricate fretwork on the impressive staircase in the entry foyer.

Currently configured as an owner’s triplex with garden level income-producing unit, each has its own separate entrance. The parlor level of the owner’s triplex has 10’ 4” ceilings, a living room, den & library with fireplace, restored original details & opens onto the terrace that overlooks the garden. The third floor consists of the master bedroom with fireplace, two additional bedrooms (one with fireplace) & a full bath. On the fourth floor is a stained glass skylight & the owner’s bright & open kitchen with remarkable tree & garden views. The kitchen has granite counters, functional prep-island, stainless appliances & fireplace. Two additional bedrooms (one with fireplace) & another full bath complete this floor.

The garden level boasts a beautiful living room/bedroom with restored built-in cabinetry, fireplace & full bath. The chef’s kitchen has an apron front sink, stone counters, stainless appliances & counter seating. This floor leads out onto the lush garden with mature plantings, slate stonework - perfect for relaxing, gardening, barbecuing and dining al fresco. There is also a mud room for storing garden furnishings & equipment.

On every level this home celebrates the beauty and history of the architecturally significant Bedford Stuyvesant brownstones.
