House of the Day: 130 Fort Greene Place

BrownstonerJuly 28, 2014

This four-story brick house has beautiful Greek Revival features but is in need of a top-to-bottom overhaul. Built in 1856, according to the listing, the landmarked house has a classical pediment over the front door, ear moldings around openings on the parlor floor, marble mantels with arches or flattened neoclassical columns, and original pocket doors.


The two-family house is 20 feet wide by 40 feet deep with an extension on the two lower floors. No kitchens or bathrooms are shown, and the listing says the property “will need complete updating.”


Think it’s worth the $2,395,000 ask?
