THE ONLY WAY TO VIEW THIS PROPERTY IS TO REACH OUT TO MALIKA OYO AT COMPASS *
This 7,700SqFt majestic limestone mansion sits on a 20’ x 150’ lot and is located directly across from the Brooklyn Children’s Museum and Brower Park. Once known as Millionaire’s Row, this serene tree lined street is one of the most luxurious blocks in Historic Crown Heights North. 867 Saint Marks Avenue effortlessly whisks you away to a bygone era of grand parlours, receiving rooms, 8 foot tall fireplaces and coffered ceilings.
The moment you step into this 20’x120’ home you will be blown away by the sheer size and extent of original details and pristine unpainted wood. You’ll discover 5’, 4’ and 3’ wainscoting throughout, stained glass windows and skylights, crown moldings, center medallions, pocket doors, 10 gas fireplaces with mantles, original parquet flooring with intricate inlaid borders, built in benches , and 4 bay windows on two floors plus oversized windows throughout. Everything in grand in this home, including an extension that offers exposures on three sides plus an upper balcony, and a 30’ deep backyard with side yard. As can be expected in a home of this size, there are five floors above grade with ceiling heights up to 10’, plus has a full basement with 7’ ceilings. The home is set back from the property line and boasts two raised garden beds and a wide dog-legged stoop —the perfect place for morning coffee or evening cocktails as you look out over Saint Marks Ave.
If you are a visionary, then you will see the potential at hand… with a reconfiguration and addition of modern upgrades to this timeless classic and you will undoubtably have a masterpiece. The property has plumbing in place for 6 kitchens and 9 bathrooms. There are steam radiators and well as pushed air venting. There is a line of closets that could potentially be converted into an elevator. The wide basement, which has stairway entries from the inside, front and back of house also has classic arches of the era and two brick rooms for mechanics. This basement would make for an amazing grotto style spa sanctuary with indoor pool.
