About this Property
"Home is where our story begins..." Welcome to 96 Fort Greene Place, a grand and majestic, yet discreet and unassuming, 22-foot-wide 6 bedroom / 5.5 bath brownstone located on a tree-lined street inside the BAM Cultural District. This house has seen dozens of children grow into adults in its 170-year history and it is ready now for a new story to begin. A turnkey four-story Italianate brownstone built circa 1853, 96 Ft. Greene Place has been extensively and meticulously renovated with an upper triplex with five bedrooms and 4.5 baths, and a renovated one-bedroom garden unit, easily incorporated into the triplex for use as a 4000 square foot single-family home, all with original detail rarely seen today. If you are looking for a large landmarked masterpiece with original detail but lots of light, one that needs no work and awaits nothing but your furniture and belongings, you cannot do better than this. Step up the new stoop and enter the foyer and note the hand-laid mosaic tile floor. Through the original door is a grand, double parlor with 11-foot ceilings, a working fireplace, museum-quality ceiling molding and medallions, original herringbone wood flooring, and a half bath. The parlor has been used for countless location shoots for film and television productions, ad campaigns, and magazines such as Bon Appetit, British Vogue, and Anthropologie Home. A brand new, full-width kitchen is positioned in the rear of the parlors and is equipped with a 48" Smeg range with double ovens, ceramic farm sink, a double-drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher, and wine fridge centered by a 10’ marble-topped island. The kitchen opens onto a new steel deck for outdoor dining and access to the backyard. And in the backyard, the owners built a heated chicken coop for fresh eggs in the morning. The owners painstakingly added all new wiring, ductwork for the four-zone heat and AC system, and updated plumbing. They then replaced all of the original plaster masterwork that pre-existed the numerous modern upgrades. Original wood floors throughout the house were first repaired and stabilized, then repurposed and relaid to their original locations. The parlor level is laid with oak herringbone flooring and wide-plank pine flooring fills the two upper levels. The original mahogany staircase to the bedroom levels was reinforced with steel. All new windows have been framed with new wood and, of course, all of the original shutters have been restored and remain fully functional. The house has two laundry rooms: one on the top floor and one in the basement. WiFi-controlled Lutron lights and SimpliSafe security system have been installed throughout the house. Typical of Italianate homes of this era, each room has a white arched mantel. Other improvements include a new roof, full exterior renovation in front and back, restored ironwork, new custom wood windows, new bluestone front yard, new backyard landscaping, new custom inlaid mosaic foyer, four-zone CAC/heat, all new wiring, updated plumbing, new mechanicals, Every improvement was completed with full Landmarks Commission approval. There are no open permits. The location? The house and the friendly neighborhood cannot be more convenient. 11 subways are within two blocks, BAM and several other renowned performance venues are around the corner, Ft. Greene Park, the oldest park in the country, is two blocks away, and there are supermarkets, retail and specialty stores, restaurants, cafes and lounges, and every other neighborhood amenity available is within blocks. Barclays Center is three blocks away. If you are looking for more space indoors and out, space that is move-in ready and solidly built, in a house that is 10 minutes to Wall Street, this is it.
