The brokerbabble for this cute Fort Greene townhouse boasts that there’s “no wasted space” in the whole place, which makes sense; it’s a 1,900-square-foot home that, at its widest point, measures 12 feet across.

But there’s plenty of charm packed into this skinny home, located on Adelphi Street just a couple of blocks from Fort Greene Park. It was built at the turn of the 20th century, and some of its original elements have been restored: The original hardwood floors have been restored, and exposed brick and a decorative fireplace mantel lend some vintage flair.

The house has also gotten modern upgrades, including a completely new electrical system and a washer/dryer hookup. The kitchen is brand new, with plenty of storage space and new appliances; it leads out to a small terrace and a deep, tree-filled backyard.

The four-story townhouse house has four bedrooms, and the garden level could, in theory, function as a fifth room or an office; there’s a bathroom and an entrance to the backyard, though no kitchen.

The house at 187 Adelphi Street, asking $2.25 million, is listed with Compass’s Jessica Soo.
