This beautiful Italianate townhouse erected circa 1870 sits on a tree-lined brownstone block just a half block from Fort Greene Park in the heart of the Fort Greene Historical District. The house measures 20ft x 42ft and sits on 100ft lot. At 3,360 SQFT and four stories, 19 South Elliott is a beautiful example of Brooklyn architecture that has come to define the brownstone lifestyle. This stately townhouse is currently configured as a three-family with a lower duplex and two floor-through units.
It retains original interior detail, such as hardwood floors, plaster moldings, marble mantles, medallions, and woodwork. The grand parlor floor offers soaring ceilings, full-length windows, and a full-width rear parlor with original arch and corbels. The staircase retains its original newel post, balusters, and railing that curves gracefully upstairs.
On its exterior, 19 South Elliott retains its original doorway enframement composed of paneled piers and foliate brackets to support a shallow eyebrow lintel. The upper story openings are ornamented by eyebrow lip lintels and molded stills supported on corbels, and the top of the structure features a wooden bracketed cornice.
19 South Elliott is an amazing investment property or ready to be reconfigured as a single-family home or triplex with garden rental. Sitting within the Fort Greene Historic district, the neighborhood is sure to retain its historic charm.
The area is an urban dwellers dream steps from Fort Greene Park with its year-round farmers market, acclaimed restaurants along DeKalb Avenue, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), quick transport to Manhattan as well as the Barclays Center and a multitude of shops and restaurants in close proximity.
