This classic Fort Greene brownstone at 23 South Elliott Place holds an attractive triplex apartment inside. The rental, which covers the parlor floor, second floor and third floor (and includes access to the backyard), is on the market for a cool $10,000 a month. On display across every floor are those exquisite original brownstone details, while a renovation managed to open up the floorplan and bring more light inside.
A long hallway along the parlor floor leads to the living room, in front, and kitchen and dining area, in the rear. The elaborate moldings and ceiling medallion that decorate the high ceiling are easily the highlight of the space.
By opening up the kitchen in the renovation, light flows through the entire floor. Modern details, like open shelving and new appliances, blend nicely with the original parlor floor design. The back door leads out to a large deck, which has stairs down to the backyard.
The second floor holds two bedrooms and one bathroom; the third floor holds the master bedroom, another bedroom, and a study. The master is decked out with two windows, a skylight and a huge walk-in dressing room.
At least one of the bathrooms still has its original clawfoot tub.
The backyard spans an impressive 1,000 square feet and includes the perfect, green nook to hang a hammock.
South Elliott Place is considered by many to be one of Brooklyn’s most desirable blocks, due to its tree and townhouse-lined street. It’s also adjacent to Fort Greene Park, located at the end of the block, as well as the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Barclays Center, both a short block south.
