My Notes

1st Time on the market in over 70 years is, 394 Vanderbilt Avenue. This land marked 4 story Italianate/Neo-Grec brownstone was designed and built by Thomas B. Jackson. Nestled in a row of 16 lovely homes on Vanderbilt Avenue between Greene & Gates Avenues. This two family brownstone boasts about 3,400 square feet of living space perfect for a growing family. This home is in need of a renovation but its bones are solid & its chock full of original detail and charm. Enjoy seven fireplaces the mantle on the parlor is marble and very ornate, original banister, tin ceilings, pocket doors, original window and door moldings throughout, window shutters in every single window, original hard wood floors under current flooring, high ceilings a grand marble entry way on the parlor floor and so much more. There is also a full basement with arched columns, the boiler is fairly new and works great. You could easily finish the basement and make it a perfect wine cellar, man cave or kids play room. The possibilities are endless. This home can easily be used as a double duplex or a triplex and a garden rental or use it as a gigantic one family. Enjoy a huge backyard perfect for entertaining or gardening. Building a deck off the parlor floor would be a great addition. Located only steps to A,C,G line & a 4-5 block walk to the Atlantic Ave stop for basically every train in Brooklyn & the LIRR. Fort Greene is arguably Brooklyns most exciting neighborhood combining a perfect mix of convenience, nightlife, culture, architecture & family.
