This townhouse at 50 South Portland Avenue in Fort Greene takes the whole-house luxury Brooklyn rental to a whole other level. In the front, it’s a stately Italianate brownstone; in the rear, it’s a modern architectural statement.
On the parlor floor, you’ll find grand proportions and a wealth of 19th century detail, including columns and a pair of handsome carved marble mantels. On the floor below, a dining room with a double-height ceiling is bathed in light and opens up onto the garden.
The transition between the two, an atrium with a custom metal and glass stair, is a looker that does not detract from the house’s original details.
The house, which has six bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms over four floors, has central air conditioning, a laundry in the basement as well as a washer/dryer on the third floor, a sundeck on the top floor, and a wine cellar. Terry Naini of Town Residential has the listing.
Located about half a block from Fort Greene park, the house is available September 1 for a one or two-year lease. It’s asking $14,000 a month. Think it’ll go fast?
