If we say Christopher Wallace’s apartment is on sale, this doesn’t mean nothing for you. But when say Notorious B.I.G.’s apartment is on sale, this will surely arouse your attention. Really, Biggie’s childhood home in Brooklyn is now on the market for a cool $725,000.
The famous singer lived there during the 1970s, and since then, the place has gone through a lot of changes and now features all modern amenities. Located in the heart of historic Clinton Hill in a limestone eight-unit building, the three-bedroom plus an office/den area in 972 square feet, has wonderful light and is beautifully proportioned.
From the spacious east-facing living room to the formal dining room to its very well-appointed kitchen with lots of storage and prep space, this apartment has great flow and holds many options for usage. Hardwood floors, crown moldings, a coffered dining room ceiling and granite countertops are only some of its appealing details.
Judith Lief, the listing agent, doesn’t think the apartment’s roots will have much of an effect on its sale: “I think it’ll be notable, but I don’t know if novelty translates to a purchase,” she told Daily Intel. “The tour buses that come by regularly are enough.”
