This beautiful two-family Italianate townhouse sits on a tree-lined brownstone block just two streets off of Fort Greene Park. Built circa 1866, the house measures 20ft x 45ft and sits on 100ft lot. At 3,600 SQFT over four stories, 216 Adelphi is a romantic expression of classic Italiante architecture that has come to define the brownstone lifestyle. This wide brownstone is configured as an upper triplex with a garden rental and is resplendent with original interior detail, and offers unusually spacious rooms and grand proportions throughout. Several of the marble mantels remain along with plaster crown moldings and medallions , a spectacular pier mirror on the parlor floor, glass pocket doors, full-length windows, and original wood floors. The staircase retains its original newel post and curves gracefully to the bedroom floors of the triplex. The spacious 1BR, 1BA garden apartment enjoys a separate below-stoop entrance and has the potential for a high income rental. 216 Adelphi is delivered vacant with both Landmarks Commission and Department of Buildings approved renovation plans, making it shovel- ready for your modern touches. The FYI here is that the plans save you approximately a year of time in project terms. Also, 216 Adelphi has approximately 400 square feet of additional FAR should you choose to amend the plans and add onto the existing property. In the heart of the Fort Greene Historic District, 216 Adelphi Street is proximate to the neighborhood's sundry amenities: playgrounds, Fort Greene Park with its year round framer's market, acclaimed restaurants along DeKalb Avenue, BAM, and quick transport to Manhattan.
