This stunning Greek Revival one-family brick townhouse epitomizes the scale, elegance and charm of the period, well-known for its delicate and light plaster work, hand-carved fireplace mantles, and dramatic wide-plank flooring. Designed at an impressive and rare 22' width, the rooms are beautifully proportioned and offer room to grow, collect art, and entertain in Fort Greene, one of Brooklyn’s most coveted landmark neighborhoods. Situated just a block from the vibrant Olmstead designed Fort Greene Park, this gracious home with old-world and rustic touches at every turn, also offers the convenience of every subway line just a few blocks away, a Citibike dock outside your door, BAM, Barclay’s center, and a myriad of award-winning independent restaurants and shops in every direction.

As you walk up the stoop into the parlor level you are greeted by a graceful mahogany staircase with the original newel post and wedding-cake plaster ceiling details. Experience a dramatic double parlor with high ceilings, plaster ceiling moldings, impressive wide plank floors, two working fireplaces and a vast array of built-in bookcases. The rear parlor overlooks a charming and secluded English-style brick-walled garden filled with established perennial plantings and loads of space to both garden and entertain to your heart’s delight. To complete this level, there is also a half bath and coat closet.
The garden level offers a spacious and formal dining room with exposed brick walls, a decorative tin ceiling, and yet another wood-burning fireplace. Head into the rear and enjoy the simplicity of a charming French farmhouse kitchen with a restaurant grade stove situated in the original hearth, and ample space to spoil your friends and family. Enjoy indoor/outdoor life everyday with an easy walkout to the garden and a stunning backdrop that includes an aged brick wall showing the patina of time and history juxtaposed with stunning greenery and the rooftops of some of Brooklyn’s most impressive architectural gems.
The upper two floors offer a sizable collection of four bedrooms-with a master that includes a 4th wood-burning fireplace-two windowed home offices or guest rooms, two additional full baths, original architectural arches and moldings, high ceilings, amazing light, treetop views, and peace and tranquility all day long. Lights streams in through an ocular stained-glass skylight to dramatic effect. Enjoy classic bathrooms with clawfoot tubs and pedestal sinks. Additional home offices can easily be adapted to creating larger and/or additional windowed bathrooms with ease.
The house has also a large, dry cellar with a recently tiled floor, good ceiling height and original arches that could be used as a great work shop or storage area.
This extra wide home possesses a turn-of-the century integrity and warmth rarely experienced. It has been lovingly maintained for years and includes new landmark windows, recently re-pointed cellar and façade, re-built fireplace chimneys, fully vented washer and dryer, and split AC units on the bedroom floors that can easily be expanded upon on the parlor and garden levels should you desire. Take a trip back into time and enjoy the space and grace that only a Fort Greene beauty like this can afford.
