This Victorian mansion, a limestone beauty at 26 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene, is so spacious that you can fit an entire two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on just half of one floor. (There are eight units in the mansion total.) Now on the market for $1.1 million, the apartment boasts quirky, modern upgrades to the historic interior with details like carved woodwork and a beautiful bay window in tact.

The windows in the living and dining area are surrounded in a beautiful carved wood–the living room even comes with an extra picture window, a nice historic perk. The dark woodwork is offset with patterned wallpaper and a modern light fixture. The kitchen’s been upgraded too, and looks a little rustic with exposed brick and a deep farm sink.

One highlight of this apartment are the gorgeous bay windows, with a cushioned window seat, in the master bedroom. (And the view, of the brownstones and trees of Fort Greene, couldn’t be better.) There’s also an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet in the master.

Don’t forget the second bedroom or second bathroom. The second bedroom isn’t big but it’s got another lovely picture window framed in wood.

The apartment is located on a prime block of the neighborhood, just one-half block from Fort Greene Park. That and living on one-half floor of a mansion makes for quite the winning combination.
