Sitting between a row of low-rise buildings on Crown Heights’s Pacific Street, this historic Italianate house with a wraparound porch, which has just hit the market, does surely make a lasting impression.
The two-story, 3,600-square-foot home, asking $2.5 million, has a charming brick facade with brownstone and cornice trim.
According to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), it was built around 1882 by architect George Damen, and it’s one of the few surviving freestanding houses in the Crown Heights North historic district. It’s also representative of suburban homes built during the time when residential development increased in the neighborhood, in anticipation of the 1883 Brooklyn Bridge opening.
It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a large garden. Its interior details include chandeliers, an original staircase with crown molding and a balustrade and newel post, and multi-paned French doors with original wood trim.
It’s located at 1450 Pacific Street, between Brooklyn and Kingston avenues, near St. Andrews playground, and the C train at Kingston-Throop. Morgan Munsey, Kristen Jock, and Perri DeFino of Compass have the listing.
