This elegant 5-story Italianate brownstone on the premier block in the Fort Greene Historic District is a striking mix of architectural preservation and contemporary design. It is approximately 5,500 sf and measures 20 x 50, with a two story extension, on a 100 ft lot. Re-configured in 2007 as a garden parlor duplex and upper triplex, there is a 3-family Certificate of Occupancy. The townhouse is flooded with light and has huge windows and glass doors opening to the garden and terraces. Dramatic details include high ceilings, original moldings, pocket and parlor doors, and marble mantels. The upper triplex has a lofted top floor and cathedral ceiling with skylight in the master bedroom. There are three south-facing outdoor spaces, including a balcony on the parlor floor, a terrace on the third floor and a sunny garden with mature plantings of white flowering dogwood, pink cherry, golden rain trees and woodland perennials. Upgrades include all new custom windows by Kolbe, Soxco rebuilt staircase, and new central AC and furnace. All flooring has been restored and refinished and white honed marble fireplaces have been stripped. There are full size, vented laundries in each unit. The diner-style kitchen on the garden level has a large restaurant range, and the kitchen in the upper triplex is new. There is a bath on each level. There are 3 walk-in closets, more than ample storage throughout and a large basement. As Charles Lockwood writes in Bricks & Brownstones: "South Portland Avenue is one of the few blocks in the entire city almost solidly lined on both sides with Italianate and Second Empire style brownstone-fronts of virtually original appearance" and is "one of New York's great architectural treasures." Fort Greene is one of New York's most vibrant neighborhoods and this brownstone is a half block from 30-acre Fort Greene Park and its year-round Saturday Green Market. Restaurants, cafes and shops stretch for blocks along the bordering streets of DeKalb and Lafayette. A and G trains are one block away, and BAM, the Brooklyn Cultural District and Barclays Center are all nearby. BY APPOINTMENT THROUGH SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14.
