In 1899, Frank Helmle and Ephraim Johnson were commissioned by Bernard J. Gallagher to build 903 and 905 Saint Marks Ave. This wide picturesque tree lined street was known as Millionaire's Row and the center of the Saint Marks District one of Brooklyn's most exclusive neighborhoods in the early 20th century. One home was for Bernard (905 St Marks) and one was for his son George (903 St Marks). Both men were well known for their politics and business acumen and consider's part of Brooklyn's leading movers and shakers at that time. Since then, the home has had only one family of record, and it has never come to marketuntil now.
If you've ever been to the Brooklyn Children's Museum or Brower Park, then you've surely passed this majestic home sitting on the corner of Saint Marks Ave and Kingston Ave in Historic Crown Heights North.
903 Saint Marks Ave is an absolute beauty and all of the original wood work and Renaissance Revival details are in tact. The stained glass, original floors, banisters, balusters, built-in mirrors and benches, wainscoting, claw foot bath tubs, gas fireplaces in every room, pocket doors, doorknobs and locks EVERYTHING IS THERE AND IN PRISTINE CONDITION! You will be pleased to know that the cellar has ~8ft ceilings and is finished with a tiled recreation room including sealed arches, a dry bar, a workshop, storage room, meter room, and a half bath. In addition, the hallways and staircases are extra wide with high ceilings on all floors.
A pillar of the Crown Heights North Historic Landmark District, 903 Saint Marks Ave is a 23' 50' building with three exposures sitting on a 25' 128' lot. That's 5,224SF as-built with 2,560SF available FAR for a total 7,776SF allowable . Spread across four floors and a cellar, the home is currently set up as an Owner's Parlour Triplex with finished rec room in basement, plus a 2 bedroom garden rental.
This section of Crown Heights has a bubbling bar and restaurant scene on Nostrand Ave and Kingston Ave, as well as easy access to the Bedford Stuyvesant scene and the Prospect Heights scene which are both about 5 blocks away. You also enjoy easy access to the LIRR at Nostrand & Atlantic, the 3/ 4 trains at Kingston & Eastern Parkway or the A/C trains at Kingston & Fulton. Aside from having me as your neighbor, another cool perk of this location is that it located directly across the street from an entire city block of public space Brower Park, The Brooklyn Children's Museum, and an elementary school.

Personally, I've never seen a home in such excellent condition as a starting point. You are sure to be impressed as well!
