Drenched in sun light - this large 2 bedroom floor thru is on the top floor of a gorgeous, 22' wide landmark brownstone mansion. It comes with ROOF RIGHTS that would potentially allow you to build your own roof-top deck! This unique pre-war home has oak floors throughout, lots of exposed brick walls and gorgeous arch-top windows. The large, open living room/dining room/kitchen is great for entertaining. It is bathed in sunlight throughout the day from a large skylight. The living room area is spacious. It features a large, custom-built, L-shaped bookcase.

Each of this home's two bedrooms offer generous closet space. Pets are welcome upon board approval in this 5-unit co-op. Bikes are allowed to be stored in the basement and you get to control your own thermostat in this home as well.

Ultra-desirable Fort Greene location! Just 2 blocks to Fort Greene Park and its Saturday farmer's market, tennis courts, playgrounds, and much more.
