Built by developer Thomas Read in the early 1870's, this 20' wide Italianate brownstone sits in the middle of an idyllic tree-lined block. NY State Assemblyman and Minority Leader Peter McCann lived here with his family in the 1880's and 1890's. Today 390 Degraw Street is configured as an owner's duplex plus basement, and two 2-bedroom apartments above. It would be easy to convert this classic townhouse to a triplex over garden rental or a single-family home. The parlor floor is graced with 12-foot ceilings, original wood floors, and tall windows that face onto a sunny south-facing backyard. The building has solid bones, good electric and plumbing, and is ready to be made new again. Zoning allows for the addition of a fifth floor or an extension into the backyard. 390 Degraw Street is close to the best of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and Boerum Hill, and the restaurants and boutiques of Smith Street and Court Street are nearby. The F & G trains are just a few blocks away for a quick commute to Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn. Delivered vacant.
