Property Details for 305 Vanderbilt Ave

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from October 01, 2013
Built in 1879, this brownstone with classical details of a Neo-Grec style row house, sits in the heart of Fort Greene-Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Originally built for the Brooklyn Navy Yard paymaster, this four-story, 3 family home has had only 3 owners in the past 113 years. One of the current owners is Kathleen Hayek, an accomplished artist and co-founder of the South of the Navy Yard Artists (SONYA). The home has served as an excellent backdrop for the art of many local artists, with their work illuminated gracefully by the homes abundant natural light. The building consists of a 2 garden duplex and two 1.5 bedroom rental apartments on the upper two floors. The 18.75 ft. x 45 ft., 3,375 sq. ft. home is structurally and mechanically sound, with upgraded electrical, plumbing, boiler and roof, as well as a water filtration system and other building upgrades. This generously proportioned home, retaining many of its original details, can easily be converted to a single-family home, with the option to keep some or all of the property's rental units as it will be delivered vacant. The exterior has been refaced, showcasing the original architectural details of the era. The foyer is highlighted by a custom-designed imported stained glass window. The grand entrance doors have been restored to their original beauty by a local artisan. The original oak floors trimmed with mahogany are present throughout the entire home. The owners duplex boasts 12 ft. ceilings with crown molding throughout, floor to ceiling windows with the original pocket wooden shutters and an open floor plan living, dining and kitchen area for easy-flow entertaining. The garden floor offers 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with private access to a lovely Zen-like blue stone patio and garden with a fan-tailed goldfish pond. The landscaped garden features a custom irrigation system making it easy to maintain throughout the seasons. Each turn-key rental unit has 1 bedroom, 1 bath and an additional room that can be utilized as an office or den area.
