Description

Rare opportunity! Spectacular owners duplex + two stunning floor-through high income producing apartments! 284 Carlton Avenue is a four story, 4,000 square foot, 22-foot wide townhouse situated on a 22’ x 100’ lot. Part of a row of five brick transitional Greek Revival/Italianate style townhouses on one of Fort Greene’s most beautiful tree lined streets. Originally built in 1853 by Lyman Mason and Francis Mason, the revamped townhome is a legal three unit property featuring a stunning owners duplex and two high income producing floor through apartments on the two upper levels. The stunning owner's duplex is accessible from the street as well as up the stoop through the original double doors. It has been fully renovated while still capturing the remarkable character and details of the original building. The garden floor of the 2,000 square foot duplex features new wide plank hardwood flooring throughout, recessed lighting and a gorgeous brick and stone wood burning fireplace that extends all the way up to the ceiling of the second floor accented by a modern staircase with beautiful iron railing artfully blended with gorgeous lightly stained hardwood treads. The expansive living room seamlessly flows to a brand newly renovated sunken kitchen and dining room with easy access to the nearly 1,000 square foot private garden. The renovated modern kitchen is flooded with natural light throughout the day with two windows and large double doors that open to the garden. The kitchen is fully equipped with high-end appliances, plenty of cabinetry and a functional layout including plenty of space for a large dining room table. The kitchen and back garden truly provide a natural and private oasis in the middle of historic Fort Greene. Up the modern staircase sits a generously sized study overlooking the main level and the massive brick and stone fireplace. Also found on this level is the large master bedroom as well as a washer and dryer tucked neatly off of the study. The master bedroom features three oversized windows overlooking the garden, recessed lighting and an en-suite bath and powder room. This floor also includes a spacious second bedroom facing the picturesque tree-lined Carlton Avenue. The duplex is also outfitted with two gas fireplace hook-ups. Each of the units upstairs are equipped with one gas fireplace hook-up each. The top two floors of this incredible house have also been impeccably renovated and transformed into highly desirable full floor, free market rentals. Each unit offers two full bedrooms and two full bathrooms featuring a stackable washer and dryer as well as full size appliances including a dishwasher. The common space leading up to the rental apartments features the original and restored Mahogany bannister as well as ‘Coffin Corners’ at the landings of the second and third floors. These niches were used for decorative purposes: to display a bowl, flowers a bust perhaps. It is a myth that the corners were inserted into the walls to turn coffins at the corner of landings. One can keep this home laid out as is or opt to combine one or more floors with the duplex. There are multiple options for how to use 284 Carlton Avenue.
