This townhouse on the Fort Greene/Bed-Stuy border is part of a row of 16 Queen Anne townhouses designed by famed Brooklyn architect Amzi Hill. Aside from its preserved historic bones that include ornate moldings and tin ceilings, there’s a beautiful modern backyard, a five-bedroom owner’s triplex, and an income-generating garden-level apartment. It’s on the market for $2,495,000.

The owner’s triplex begins on the parlor level, where there are high ceilings, great light, and many original details. Throughout, there are new white oak hardwood floors and designer light fixtures. The rear of the floor is occupied by the contemporary kitchen, which has marble countertops, a massive center island, and a vented range. Off the kitchen is a deck that’s perfect for grilling, and it leads down to the south-facing garden.

The garden has been completely redone in a modern mode, with separate zones for lounging and dining, divided by a cool pergola.

On the third floor, there is a street-facing bedroom with two large closets, a full bathroom in the hall, and a rear bedroom that’s currently set up as a family room complete with a laundry closet.

The primary bedroom is on the fourth floor. It has a Juliet balcony, fireplace, and walk-in closet.

Also on the top floor is a full bathroom in the hall and two smaller rear bedrooms, one of which is set up as a home office.

The townhouse’s facade is perfectly preserved, complete with climbing ivy. It’s just two blocks from the G train at Nostrand Avenue and a block away from all the restaurants along Bedford Avenue.
