408 Macon Street


Sold & Closed. With an excellent position on the south side of Macon Street, steps from Lewis Avenue, this 20 foot-wide brownstone is characterized by an excess of natural light, a wide and deep lot, high-ceilings, and over 3,000 square feet of space. The home is currently occupied as a two-family with the owner using the garden, parlor, and first floor levels while earning income from the studio rental unit above. Five stunning marble mantels, a pier mirror, and wooden window shutters are a few of the charming period age details inside the home. Outside, this location is the exact place where the rejuvenation of Bedford-Stuyvesant has taken off most quickly.


The home is situated in the Stuyvesant-Heights Landmark District and was built in 1879 by architect Charles Isbill. He designed the house in the Neo-Greco style as a row house for his family. In the 1890s, this was also the home of Reverend Andrew Underhill, who was instrumental in building up the congregation and overseeing the construction of the historical St. Phillip’s Episcopal Church at 334 MacDonough Street. While the future owner is able to move into the home tomorrow, there exists tremendous potential to refashion this home to suit any number of arrangements and styles of living.
