Charming Italianate-Style Townhome in Fort Greene Sells for $3.3 Million

July 31, 2014

The one-to-two family dwelling at 20 South Oxford Street must have made quite an impression on a few buyers. An apparent bidding war drove the price up from its initial $2.65 million asking to a final sale price of $3.3 million, according to city records. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street in the Fort Greene Historic District, this three-story Italianate-style home has a garden-level apartment with a separate entrance that can serve as an income suite or a fourth level. In addition, the home boasts high ceilings; a large backyard accented by a 123-square-foot deck; and many original details from its 1854 inception, including original marble mantles on each of the home’s six decorative fireplaces.

The main floor of this 20-foot-wide home has a grand living room, a formal dining room, and a kitchen with a sunroom overlooking the garden. A grand staircase leads to two upper levels of private living space, each with two sizable bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the home’s four bedrooms has a sitting area, while the top floor has an additional home office.
