Charming pre-Civil War Boerum Hill house asks $3.2M
Though not quite as old as this wooden West Village townhouse, this four-story wood-frame house at 446 State Street in Boerum Hill dates back to the 1840s. The home has been lovingly preserved by generations of residents and still maintains many of its original features including a portico, wood pocket shutters, hardwood floors throughout, and a fireplace. The unique property is now on the market for $3.2 million.
The garden level consists of a large dining room and eat-in kitchen. While the backsplash and appliances could use upgrading, we hope any future redesigns will maintain the elaborate plasterwork on the ceiling. The roomy 22-foot by 78-foot lot leaves plenty of room for the south-facing garden, which is accessible through a mud room next to the kitchen.
On the parlor level, you’ll find a formal living room, where the centerpiece is the restored marble mantle framing the fireplace. Four bedrooms are spread out over this level and the top floor.
The house has a partially-finished basement and a finished attic that includes a small kitchenette and full bathroom.
