This temple-fronted Greek-Revival free-standing mansion is on a 65' knoll on a 52' x 120' (double) lot very convenient to Myrtle Avenue. This is a historical home lover's dream as one of the oldest extant (1840) structures in Brooklyn and the oldest National Historic Landmark in Clinton Hill.
There is parking for two cars.

The portico is supported by four grand Corinthian columns and the entrance is ornamented by rosettes that are also carried into the interior of the main two-story wing of the home. Upon entering the grand aspect of the living room and two bedrooms are framed by giant six-over-six pane windows.
The current layout boasts four fireplaces, one very large masterbath and a huge master bedroom with skylights, six-over-six windows on the second floor, with terraces and two bedroom and baths on the first floor. This serves the needs of any size family well, what with its 2,256 soft of very comfortable and well-laid out space.
Since this is a historical house, the kitchen was originally in the cellar, and could be restored as such as there is a fireplace there too, and the main area has been opened to allow for natural light. The whole cellar space is very large with separate boiler, storage and 13' x 36' main areas.
The F.A.R. of the lot allows another 6,000 + sqft of structure, with the proviso that it cannot be seen from the street and interfere with the historical nature of the house. This sort of thing has and, can be, done.
A detailed floorplan of the house and the lot is being prepared and will be available very soon.
Viewings arranged with notice at anytime during the week and weekends.
