364 Jefferson Ave


Sold & Closed. The best house on the block is finally for sale. This three-family brownstone is what we all dream of owning one day. Measuring nearly 4,000 square feet, heavy hard woods are intermixed with exposed brick, stained glass, and delicate woodwork. Large north and south-facing bay windows add dimension and flood the home with light. The period details are ornate without being ostentatious. An owner’s duplex occupies the garden and the parlor levels. Two full-floor rental units are above. A finished basement, a south-facing sun deck, and a rear garden complete the home. 364 Jefferson can be delivered vacant.


Built in 1899 by Axel Hedman in the Romanesque Revival Style, the home is part of the proposed Stuyvesant West Landmark District, an area of stunning townhomes. Axel Hedman contributed much to Brooklyn in his plus 40-year architectural career. He had successful partnerships with other great period architects like Magnus Dahlander and Eugene Schoen, yet he mostly designed under his own name. More than other prolific builders of the time, Hedman famously designed townhomes for the character of his clients and the neighborhoods they chose to live in. His work can be appreciated in the details of his designs, and 364 Jefferson has them dripping from the ceilings, walls, and floors. The current owner undertook a once-in-a-century capital improvement plan. The water and waste lines were all rerun with new caste iron trunk lines and new plumbing throughout complete with three natural gas boilers. The electrical systems were upgraded and many ancient switches and lamps remain in tact. The rooftop has been resurfaced, and the rear facade was refaced with new mortar and red brick.

The Neighborhood

Jefferson Avenue is on one of Stuyvesant Heights most coveted blocks, and the surrounding area is row after row of two and three story exquisitely designed townhouses set upon broad tree-lined streets. Developed between 1870 and 1920, Stuyvesant Heights is an almost exclusively residential neighborhood with small businesses and shops serving the community.
