Crown Heights Brownstone Bursting With Original Woodwork, Mantels Asks $2.295 Million

This massive four-story Renaissance Revival townhouse in the Crown Heights Historic District has eye-popping details and incredible woodwork, with an onyx fireplace surround and multiple vintage stoves. Located at 1154 Dean Street not far from the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, it’s designated as an SRO, according to the listing.

Overall, the whopping 57-feet-deep six-bedroom, 3.5-bath home, built in 1894, looks to be in remarkably good shape. In addition to those details mentioned, there’s also waist-high wainscoting throughout, inlaid flooring, bay windows, pocket shutters, exterior ornaments, and seven wood mantels — the works.

While some of the bathrooms and kitchens could certainly benefit from an update, they appear serviceable.

The configuration, though, remains a bit mishmash, with the home currently divided up into five units: a single-bedroom garden apartment with entrance beneath the stoop, a two-bedroom, 1.5-bath duplex on the parlor and second level, and three units on the top floor.

Back in 1954, the house had 15 units, according to a certificate of occupancy on file at the DOB. Whether the discrepancy is legal and the house can be renovated without fines and more than the usual bureaucratic acrobatics, we cannot say.

The certificate of non harassment is a huge plus, but any potential buyer should expect there’s still a fair amount of work, time and expense up ahead to change the certificate of occupancy. The SRO designation could also make financing tricky.

Last year, the property changed hands for $900,000, less than half the current ask of $2.295 million. Bouchra Lattef of Bls Realty Inc. has the listing. Worth it?
