About this Property
The James and Lucy S. Elwell House - a historic opportunity in the heart of Clinton Hill. This truly unique landmarked home in the suburban Italianate villa style, built in 1854, is one of only a handful of freestanding pre-civil war mansions in Brownstone Brooklyn. Perched on a 65x120 lot, the house overlooks Lefferts Place with its pristine brownstones and lush greenery. The property also features drive in parking as well as generous front and rear garden areas. The house offers 2.5 floors plus a rooftop cupola, with myriad original details including multiple wood burning fireplaces, wainscoting, wide plank flooring and crown molding. Gracious proportions and generous light throughout. James Elwell was a prominent local figure in civic, commercial and philanthropic capacities - he was a generous donor to many charities throughout New York. He and his family occupied the home for nearly 100 years. Bring your architect to discover this homes true potential.
