Italianate Brownstone in Fort Greene Asks $3.5 Million

New, 5 comments

Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.


↑ In Fort Greene, this huge Italianate brownstone is asking $3.5 million. The house is 21'-wide and features a 55'-deep garden. Original details include wide-plank wood flooring, original marble mantles, and plaster-work archways. There's also a large custom kitchen, a mud room, and central air and audio running throughout the house.


↑ Up next is this four-story brick townhouse over in Cobble Hill. Built in the 1850s, period details include wide-plank wood flooring, wide parlor doorways, tall pocket doors with etched glass, extensive moldings, and a detailed marble mantel that will allegedly "inspire you." There's also a tablecloth that may or may not have been stolen from an Italian restaurant. It's asking $4.999 million.


↑ In Bushwick, this newly renovated townhouse wants $949,000. It's currently configured for two families, with the rental unit fetching $2,350/month. The lower level has a large, modern kitchen and a nice looking yard. There's also a double bass casually leaning against the wall, which is starting to look like a trend.


↑ Also in Fort Greene, this 20'-wide brownstone is asking $2.65 million. The house dates back to 1854 and features six decorative fireplaces surrounded by their original marble mantles. There's also a sun room which is "perfect for that morning coffee, overlooking the home's garden."


↑ In Park Slope, this four-story limestone house is asking $4.1 million. There are parquet floors, single-panel doors, wainscoting, a coffered ceiling, a stained-glass skylight, all original. There are also bay windows with leaded-glass transoms and geometric ironwork.


↑ Finally, this three-story townhouse, also in Park Slope, is asking $1.4 million. There's custom carpentry, hardwood floors, exposed brick, and what looks like a pretty nice backyard. Most importantly, though, there's yet another double bass artfully placed in the living room. Does every townhouse owner in Brooklyn play a large string instrument or something?
