This estate sale in historic Fort Greene captures the romantic notion of townhouse living. Built c. 1864, the massively proportioned townhouse is located on a prime landmark block. 252 Carlton's entrance is detailed with an arched frame and ten-foot inset doors opening into a parlor with 13-foot ceilings. Much of the ornate plaster moldings and medallions, original woodwork and floors, pocket doors and original mantels remain intact throughout. This legal two family home offers more than 4,100 square feet on a 100-foot lot. Currently configured as an upper triplex with a garden rental, the house is easily convertible to a grand single family home. With a magnificent backyard and the numerous mechanical upgrades by the previous longtime owner, 252 Carlton is waiting to be restored to its original grandeur. Delivered vacant.

In the very heart of the neighborhood, you are steps from Fort Greene Park, the area's restaurant row on Dekalb Ave, BAM, transportation and superb dining.
