“I want something with character.” This is definitely a line brokers hear all the time. And if their current character-seeking client is looking to move to brownstone Brooklyn, this $2.5 million Romanesque Revival rowhouse in Prospect Heights is the perfect place to satisfy their check list.

Located at 268 Prospect Place, the three-bedroom, 2,430-square-foot home was built by William L. Beers in 1899.

Part of the Prospect Heights Historic District, this home has been beautifully preserved by its current owner over the past 44 years. The district includes about 850 buildings, mostly single-family rowhouses built between the mid 1800’s to early 1900’s.

On the garden floor is a formal dining room with built-in china cabinet, full bath, and country kitchen and sun room complete with beamed ceilings, which lead out to the 70-foot-deep outdoor garden.
