221 Cornelia Street


Don't miss the opportunity to own your own entire townhouse for the price of a two-bedroom condo!
Nestled on a tree-lined street in prime Bushwick, 221 Cornelia Street is turnkey and move-in ready. With a flexible layout, it offers the enterprising buyer an affordable opportunity to re-design a custom one-or-two family home to live in for a lifetime. This is the perfect property for a buyer looking to showcase their own taste rather than being stuck with someone else's design, but on a manageable scale that won't take forever.
The house comes with some lovely original details, in addition to a huge back yard and a fantastic location. Offering 2,565 sq. ft. over three floors of comfortable living space plus an unfinished basement with an additional 855 sq. ft., this spacious and charming home is a legal 2-family with separate meters separated that is presently being utilized as a single family by its current owners.
The garden level is currently being used as an artist workspace with all the connections in place for you to build out a second kitchen. A separate laundry combined powder room with full size washer and dryer appliances provide added convenience. Step out into a spacious, peaceful garden with mature plants and trees, including lovely roses in full bloom.
The parlor level features two bedrooms with a beautiful home office masterfully outfitted with original built-ins and glass shelving, French doors, tin ceilings, and a decorative fireplace perfectly restored along with a newly renovated bathroom. The second floor is a fully renovated, turnkey floor-through two-bedroom apartment with a modern kitchen and bathroom and features a decorative fireplace, original French doors and hardware.
You should really do a virtually walk through of this home to understand its unique potential. When redesigned this home makes a picture perfect two-family, four-bedroom PLUS townhouse with the parlor and garden levels converted into a generous size owner's unit with a floor through master suite and access to the private garden and the second floor as the income producing rental unit.
A selection of original details remain intact and have been meticulously restored including original French doors, door hardware, fireplace mantles, exposed beams, a dramatic staircase, and high ceilings. East and West exposure guarantees great light all day on all floors. Set nicely back from the street you can indulge in landscaping both your front and back yards and also enjoy extra privacy. And don't miss the incredibly low taxes of only $2,332 per YEAR! Install a new efficient heating and cooling system, and the monthly cost to run this house will be lower than a small condo.
