Modern Elegance in Brooklyn: See Inside the Home Set to Break the Sale Record in Bed-Stuy

By Emily McCrary-Ruiz-Esparza

Gates Avenue is a street of understated brownstones and brick row homes, lined on both sides by tall sugar maples and willow oaks. It’s dotted with churches and tabernacles. It runs like a vein through the middle of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood, with Bushwick on one end, Clinton Hill on the other. The four-story brick home at 381 Gates has one of the street’s only evergreens, perennially shading its front windows.

This stunning home at is currently listed by Corcoran at $3.3 million, which, if it sells at its list price, will break the record for a two-family property in Bed-Stuy. The listing agents let us peek inside its welcoming double doors.

A front sitting room welcomes visitors with this grand Calacatta marble wood-burning fireplace with herringbone tile firebox—the pattern mirrored in the exquisite white oak floors. Views of quiet Gates Avenue are through the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.

Marble and white oak continue into the open kitchen–dining room that opens into the back garden through modern Sierra Pacific windows. Clean-hewn Bauformat cabinetry in slate gray highlights the marble island and backsplash.

The master bedroom includes a private balcony that hangs over the 1,500-square-foot back garden.

In the en-suite master bath, find more herringbone and Calacatta marble detail and this magnificent free-standing deep soaking tub by Signature Hardware.
