About this Property
This beautiful two-family Italianate townhouse bookends a block-long row of tree-lined brownstones built circa 1868. Measuring approx. 21ft x 45ft on an extra deep 105ft lot, with approx. 3,830 SQFT over four stories, 259 Clermont Avenue is a well-preserved Fort Greene townhouse ready for your modern touches. Above its wide stoop, find a remarkably intact facade with a double set of authentic wooden doors leading to a parlor level with soaring 12-foot ceilings. This extra wide brownstone is resplendent with original interior detail, and offers unusually spacious rooms and grand proportions throughout. Seven marble mantels, plaster crown molding, glass pocket doors, full-length windows, and original wood floors grace the upper triplex. The staircase retains its original newel post and curves gracefully to the bedroom floors of the triplex, which contain a full windowed bath on each level. The spacious 1BR, 1BA garden apartment enjoys a separate below-stoop entrance and has the potential for a high income rental. This well-maintained home is delivered vacant with Landmarks Commission-approved renovation plans. In the heart of the Fort Greene Historic District, 259 Clermont Avenue is proximate to the neighborhood's sundry amenities: playgrounds, Fort Greene Park, acclaimed restaurants along DeKalb Avenue, BAM, and quick transport to Manhattan.
