The architect on this three-story house in Crown Heights, just a couple of blocks away from the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, was supposedly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, while creating this 1920s house. While that’s not immediately apparent from the listing’s photos, this house is lovely nonetheless.
Past the front porch, the house open up into a sitting room fitted with Mahogany wood columns and a Maple wood floor. The adjacent dining room features a nine-foot-tall vaulted ceiling, and the eat-in kitchen, just beyond that, was recently renovated.
Currently the house is set up as a two-family home, according to the brokerbabble, but it can easily be converted into a three-family house, since the lower level is also equipped with its own kitchen.
The master bedroom is presently situated on the second floor, and overlooks the street. There’s also a walk-in closet on this floor, an additional kitchen, and a room that can be used as a library or a home office. Three additional bedrooms are located on the top floor.
Some of the other standout features of this house include the large backyard, the skylight on the top floor, and the fact that each floor has a built-in fireplace that can be reactivated. For all of that, this house is asking $2.89 million.
