Built c.1859 with a mix of Italianate and Greek Revival features, this landmarked, 4-story, 21' wide rowhouse sits on one of Boerum Hill's best tree-lined blocks. Warm, elegant, and spacious, its original splendor is retained while it has been fully updated for the 21st century.
Currently configured as a legal 2-family, with a 5-bedroom, 1 office, 4 ½ bath triplex and a 1-bedroom, rec room, 1½ bath garden duplex, the house could be easily converted to single family use. In 2003 the owners completed a full restoration which included rewiring and replumbing the entire house, replastering and re-sheetrocking throughout, rebuilding the stairs on the top two floors, and installing new kitchens and bathrooms. New heating and air conditioning systems were installed. Most rooms are wired for Internet and TV, and the parlor is equipped with a built-in stereo system. Dug out 18?, the Cellar has high ceilings. The owners took meticulous care to restore the building's original details, which include ornate crown moldings & medallions, five working fireplaces with marble mantles, wide plank floors, pocket doors with stained glass, hand crafted Landmark approved windows, and beautiful original woodwork. The parlor floor opens onto a full width steel deck, perched over a sunny garden with a bluestone patio. The yard feels double wide, thanks to a low fence. The surrounding yards are open, well kept, and lush, creating a sense of being in the countryside.
