This painstakingly restored early 20th-century Dean Street townhouse has got all the things that make Brooklyn townhouse lovers swoon. The fireplaces. The chandeliers. The pretty ridiculous oversized cast-iron stove in the renovated kitchen. The elaborate woodwork?everywhere. Historic touches have been preserved, right down to the hinges, even as modern appliances round out the four-bedroom, two-bathroom space with a backyard that needs some TLC. It hit the market this week, asking a $2,195,000, which is a pretty ambitious figure, especially considering that it's a couple blocks east of Crown Heights' gentrified main drag Franklin Avenue. The current owners bought in two years ago for a mere $699,000, making this a pretty impressive flip if they can pull it off. Its more fringe area puts 1234 Dean Street in a completely different ballpark than, say, this Brooklyn Heights townhouse gunning for a record sale. But given the crazy market right now, anything's possible.
