Landmarked Fort Greene townhouse once featured on ‘Girls’ asks $5.6M

New, 4 comments

The five-story townhouse spans 5,600 square feet and comes with seven bedrooms

Brokers describe this 5,600-square-foot townhouse in Fort Greene as the "star of numerous television series, movies and commercials," and you can get a little sense of why that is when you look at the listing’s photos. It was featured in an episode on the second season of Girls, and has also made appearances on Elementary, SNL, and Difficult People, to name a few others.

The landmarked brownstone is currently configured as a three-family rental and the entire house is now on the market asking $5.6 million. The five-story house features seven bedrooms and five bathrooms and comes with a spacious basement that can be used as a wine cellar.

Built in the 1860s, some of the standout features in this home include the winding staircase that connects all five floors, the 13-foot-tall ceilings in the parlor floor, as you enter the house, and original woodwork from the 19th century.

The house recently underwent a renovation, and some of the modern additions include the Paperstone island in the chef’s kitchen, the Miele refrigerator, and the Wolf stove with a built-in grill.

Other nice features are the garden patio, and the fact that it’s just a short walk from Fort Greene Park, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
