This type of rare property rarely, if ever, comes to market. Once used as the Rectory for the neighboring church, this dramatic over 5000 sq. ft semi-detached mansion is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase and restore a 40' wide building dripping with details and located just steps from the heart of Fort Greene's shops, restaurants and parks. This wide and open home offers the openness of loft living with the charm and hominess of incredible details and history. Currently a legal one family home, all you need to do is add your modern kitchen and baths and you can move right in (and it is easily convertible to a two-family)! It also makes a great live/work space for an artist. Mechanicals and historic details throughout are in excellent condition and include multiple marble mantles, wide honey-pine floor, mahogany Corinthian columns and moldings, floor-to-ceiling windows, 16' ceilings, elegant iron work, etched glass and original decorative brass hardware. Windows on three sides and bay windows set this home apart! Ground level has beautiful carved mahogany walls, eat-in-kitchen area, dining room and bedroom or office. The 2nd foor is a grandiose double-wide parlor with three rooms, and up the grand staircase you have two more floors with extra spacious bedrooms and the largest bathroom areas you have ever seen! Located on a beautiful historic treelined block, this home will knock your socks off!
