At an impressive 20' feet wide and 55' deep, this gorgeous 2-family home is worthy of a lengthy pause as you approach the stoop. Notice the careful restoration of the brick facade and it's meticulously restored cornice and eyebrow stonework above the windows. Great respect for the original details in addition to a complete 21st century renovation make this home the one everyone has been searching for.Head up the stoop and enter into the lower floor of the owner's duplex. This level is made for living and entertaining with a wide open plan with abundant space for living and dining that flow seamlessly into your state of the art kitchen.

The 2 bedrooms also face the yard and this unit has 2 sizable full bathrooms, a washer/dryer and access to the garden oasis.Both units also feature central AC and heat.With proximity to multiple subway lines and a Bushwick location that is second to none, 1194 Decatur Street will not only make someone a very lucky home owner but also a very smart investor.
