Built in 1877 by architect-developer Thomas B. Jackson, 21 Brevoort Place is a quintessentially grand Brooklyn brownstone on an unusually deep 141-foot lot. This 5-story, 20-foot wide townhouse was designed for the grandeur of a bygone era, with an impressive faade that sits high up off the street and parlor floor ceilings that soar over 11 feet high. Tall windows let light deep into the house all day long, especially from the south facing front. This beautiful home sits in the middle of a quiet tree-lined street that runs just one block and therefore gets very little traffic. Originally built for a single family, 21 Brevoort Place is now configured with five apartments, one per floor. The current owners completed a meticulous gut renovation in 2001, with great care taken to preserve the buildings original Italianate and Neo-Grec design elements, including six marble fireplace mantles, pumpkin pine floors, the original staircase, and original woodwork throughout. The renovation included the installation of all new electric, plumbing, heating, kitchens, bathrooms, windows, and much more. In 2017 the brownstone faade and stoop were completely redone by skilled artisans. Each apartment is equipped with its own boiler and hot water heater in the basement, giving tenants the ability to control the heat in their respective apartments and pay their own heat and hot water separately. Having the utilities separate provides flexibility to reconfigure the building into two, three, or four apartments. It would be easy to combine the garden and parlor floor apartments into a garden duplex, as the interior staircase linking the two is completely intact. It would also be easy to condo the building and sell some or all of the apartments separately. Zoning allows for a large extension. Or keep this great multi-family building just as it is, and watch the high-value market rate rents appreciate over time. Opportunities abound!The backyard sprawls across 88 feet, which is two or three times larger than most Brooklyn townhouse backyards. This wonderfully tranquil oasis from the bustle of the City awaits your green thumb. With this much space theres plenty of room for just about any project you can imagine!21 Brevoort Place is close to many of Brooklyns best restaurants, shops and other amenities.
