About this Property
A half block from Prospect Park, this classic high stooped brownstone was designed in 1903 by Brooklyn architect Benjamin Driesler. The L-shaped stoop, curved 3-window bay and metal cornice are examples of both the Romanesque Revival and neo-Classical architectural styles used in the period. Interior details include oak and bird's eye maple woodwork, wainscoting, parquet floors with intricate inlaid borders, beautiful stained glass windows and pocket doors. The house has six decorative fireplaces which include columned mantels, over-mirrors, and tiled or onyx surrounds. Other highlights are original pier mirrors, dressing rooms, and decorative plaster ceiling detail.

A beautiful oak staircase flanked by wainscoting and a intricately designed bannister greets you in the entranceway. Large pocket doors open up to the spacious double living room. Unique arched fretwork divides the space, blending in seamlessly with original columns and moldings.

A large decorative fireplace with golden onyx surround is the centerpiece of the formal dining room, featuring a coffered ceiling and built-ins with leaded-glass doors. Vintage fixtures illuminate the space and the original hand-painted wall coverings. Beautiful pocket doors and leaded stained glass complete the elegant picture.

A galley kitchen is followed by an ample pantry with back staircase access to the common laundry room, WC, and garden.

The upper two floors include five bedrooms, two full baths, four decorative fireplaces, and a stained glass skylight illuminating the top floor hall.

The garden level currently consists of a 1 bedroom apartment. The home can easily be converted into a grand 1-family residence.

Near Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket, Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Museum, and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Convenient to all transportation, shopping, and restaurants. Zoned for PS 321 School District.
