Built in 1869 in the Italianate style, 181 Dean Street is a quintessential Brooklyn brownstone in the heart of Boerum Hill's historic landmark district. This 20-foot wide 2-family home flows elegantly across 3,270 sf and includes a beautiful verdant garden. South facing windows on the front facade bring sunlight deep into the house all day long. On the parlor floor the ceilings soar close to 12 ft high, and many original details remain including the original entry doors, staircase, and marble fireplace mantles. Although 181 Dean Street's history includes an SRO designation, the building was occupied solely by the prior owners without tenants for many years, and will be delivered vacant. Efforts are underway with the City to remove the SRO status. Nestled in the middle of a quiet tree-lined block between Hoyt and Bond St, 181 Dean St feels a world apart but is close to all the amazing shopping, dining, and other amenities of Smith Street, Atlantic Avenue, and the surrounding Brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods. There are 11 subway lines within three blocks for a quick commute to Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn. 181 Dean Street is ready for a full gut renovation so bring your architect and contractor to make this historic home your own.
