This grand four-story, two-family historic brownstone, located in the landmarked section of Crown Heights North, is available for sale for the first time in 50 years.
Located on one of the most beautiful blocks in Crown Heights, 1215 Dean street comprises 4,585 square feet, not including the basement with brick arches. That is only $501 a square foot for a luxury townhouse.
The spacious brownstone with a 20x50' footprint on a 100 ft lot has a 7'x20' extension on both the first floor (garden level) and parlor level. Allowances exist to extend or build an additional 841 feet if desired. A large private fenced rear garden provides peaceful enjoyment for relaxing, gardening, and entertaining outdoors.
The house is currently set up with the owner living in the garden-level apartment, which has a kitchen and bathroom and its own private entrance.
The garden rental has two bedrooms which can bring in $2400/month, offsetting a large portion of the mortgage. The upper triplex can be move-in ready but can benefit from a more updated kitchen. The size of the house allows for many different configurations.
Designed by the architect known as the master of the 'Queen Anne' style, George P. Chappell built the home in 1892 and included many original period details that define its distinctive elegance and classic character. Original inlaid hardwood floors, original woodwork, Mantels galore, Stained glass, pocket doors, and pier mirrors are in excellent condition and exude old-world charm throughout. The current owner has lovingly maintained the home and preserved its special details.
The location is exceptional, close to Prospect Park, the Zoo, and the Brooklyn Museum, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Around the corner from Nostrand Avenue, there are many coffee shops and restaurants. The 3 train is on Eastern Parkway, or hop on the express A train which is conveniently located a few blocks away on Nostrand Avenue, for a fast commute to the city. The house has very low property taxes and can generate excellent rental income which makes this a perfect long-term investment!
