Let your imagination run wild with the George B. and Susan Elkins House, the oldest free-standing frame house in Crown Heights! If you are looking to design your dream home, then this may be for you. A landmarked building, this house has over 4,600 square feet of usable space that just reeks of history. From the hill on which it sits, to the fully-detached, light-filled interior, the 13 foot ceilings, the central staircase and the full-width front porch, a house like this will not be found anywhere in Crown Heights. While the exterior remains largely as it was in the 1860's, the interior has been completely demolished. This means you can create your fantasy layout, be it fully open, partially enclosed or a little of both. Live like a Victorian land baron, which is what the original owner actually was. With a 50 x 130 lot, there's room for an outdoor pool or a tennis court. Let your imagination run wild. Be creative and rest assured that no one in the neighborhood can ever say their home is older than yours. Like a fine wine, this home will only gain in value. Showings are by appointment only. Please call me today for a private viewing of this exciting property.
