A lovely little Fort Greene townhouse nestled within the Brooklyn neighborhood’s historic district has a charming facade and thoroughly modern interiors—and a $3.5 million price tag.

The three-story home dates back to 1870, according to the listing; though it’s part of the Fort Greene Historic District, details on the property are scant in the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report. The exterior has gotten an upgrade from the last time the house was on the market, with a new coat of paint and new windows that lend the whole

But the vintage charm of the facade has been all but stripped away inside, with a gut renovation adding “tasteful modern finishes,” according to the brokerbabble. The main entrance is on the parlor level, which leads into an open living and dining room with a decorative fireplace and herringbone floors. The kitchen, which has sleek mint green cabinets, leads out to a small deck and the expansive backyard.

On the upper floors, there are four bedrooms (each of which has ample closet space and an en-suite bathroom); on the garden level, there’s additional space for a rec room, along with a washer and dryer.

Located at 266 Clermont Avenue, the home is asking $3.495 million; it’s listed with Compass’s Eric Sidman.
