Description

Country house in the city offers charm, light, and opportunity in cosmopolitan Boerum Hill. At a roomy 22' width, 446 State offers four stories, finished basement, and a sunny south facing garden. Details include original wide board floors, Greek Revival entrance, multiple fireplaces, and windows on each stair landing, for wonderful natural light throughout. A legal 2- family, 446 State works well as two duplexes, each its own private entrance. Or...convert it to use as a spacious single family home. FAR permits you to build an extension too, if that's your desire. One of the first homes to be built in Boerum Hill, this house is a tough and charming survivor from the days when Walt Whitman edited the Brooklyn Eagle and most of Downtown Brooklyn was farmland. Today there's no need to catch Robert Fulton's ferry - with multiple subway lines and the LIRR within strolling distance. Also nearby: BAM, Barclay's Center and Downtown Brooklyn's attractions virtually at your doorstep.
