Town House

Built in 1899

You've never seen something like this before in Fort Greene: dramatic and oversized, 22' wide with over 5,000 square foot interior, plus cellar, in a phenomenal location. Massive scale, 12' ceilings, and huge windows provide verdant views from within this exceptionally light and bright brownstone. This impeccable stylish, recently gut-renovated two-family stunner, features designer interiors, oversized rooms, bucolic outdoor space, and an unbeatable location just two blocks from Fort Greene Park. Configured with a six-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom owner's four-plex, and a two-bedroom garden floor-through unit, this stunning townhouse is ideal for homebuyers seeking a private oasis with tons of room to live and grow. With 4 floors above, rent the garden for extra income or keep it as the best guest suite in town, and you will never lack space.

Arrive on the parlor level to discover jaw-dropping living spaces with a drool-worthy aesthetic that embraces the home's 19th-century bones while making it utterly today. Through massive double entry doors, a gracious entry foyer opens to the living room through gracefully arched double doors. Ornamental ceiling details soar over flawless light oak hardwood floors, while massive west-facing windows frame leafy views alongside an ornate pier mirror. A stately marble fireplace creates a beautiful transition between spacious and open living and dining areas, while pocket doors reveal the massive eat-in kitchen sure to become a favorite gathering spot. Thoughtfully crafted by Henrybuilt, crisp white countertops blend with natural wood, and oversized top-of-the-line appliances are juxtaposed with another elaborate mantelpiece and lush outdoor views. The adjacent deck is perfect for al fresco dining or grilling before enjoying a night in the garden below. The parlor level also has a large tucked-away powder room, tons of space to stash shoes and coats out of view and a direct stair to the cellar.

Take the grand staircase up from the parlor level to discover a full-floor primary suite. Soft Venetian plaster-style walls add a serene ambiance to the bedroom joined with calming modern en suite bathroom with a frameless glass shower and floating double vanity. A gracious walk-in closet sits between the bedroom and a dramatic sitting room features gorgeous built-in cabinetry, a marble mantel and three windows that make you feel like you're in the trees. On the third floor, two huge bedrooms, each with oversized closets, as well as a gracious office or nursery, share a sizeable semi-private bathroom. And at the pinnacle of the house, the sky-lit top floor is configured with another bedroom, a full bathroom, a laundry area, small kitchenette, and an oversized living space currently used as a family room/playroom. Perfect for guests to make themselves comfortable and for everyone in the family to settle in for movie nights with your favorite drink or snack at hand or a freshly popped bowl of popcorn prepared while you watch.

With over 4100 on the top four floors of this house, the gorgeous garden apartment is an optional living space or can produce income. It was designed to be seamlessly incorporated into the main living unit by opening one wall. Entering from the forecourt of the house down two steps, you'll find a gracious and beautiful living/dining area, an open kitchen, two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and private laundry. One level below this, access directly from the upper unit through interior stairs, is a 1000+ square feet clean and dry cellar.

Located within the Fort Greene Historic District, 275 Adelphi Street is nestled within a row of exceptional Italianate brownstones built in 1871. From this charming, tree-lined block, you're surrounded by some of Brooklyn's very best amenities and attractions. Fantastic dining, nightlife and shopping venues line the nearby blocks, including Apple, Whole Foods, the Atlantic Terminal Mall and City Point BKLYN, featuring Dekalb Market Hall, Trader Joe's and Target.
