Here is one for the true brownstone lover who is ready to put the work in to preserve the abundance of intact interior details in this 1870s Clinton Hill Italianate. Plasterwork, mantels, marble sinks, lighting fixtures, interior shutters; it is all here, although in estate condition.
Offering up some architectural cachet, this one-bedroom rental is in an 1890s manse with a hard-to-miss stately presence on the already interesting Joralemon Street. In addition to some intriguing history, the apartment has two decorative mantels, wood floors and a spacious bedroom.
Our selections for open houses last weekend all have some original details on their interiors. Two have been more recently renovated while another has a garage. They are found in Prospect Heights, Greenpoint, Kensington and Bay Ridge and range in price from $1.295 million to $3.95 million.
On the exterior, this 1820s Brooklyn Heights home has the picturesque silhouette of a Federal-style row house, including a tidy Flemish bond brick facade topped with dormers. In addition to its 19th century charms, the single-family home also has a 20th century Brooklyn history link as the long-time home of landscape architect Alice Recknagel Ireys.
This home in the Crown Heights North Historic District looks to be another fine example of the work of prolific architect Axel Hedman, who designed hundreds of Brooklyn row houses including many on this stretch of Prospect Place. The interior is rich with woodwork including a pier mirror, fretwork, built-ins, pocket doors and mantels.
