There’s something very romantic about this brownstone at 374 Vanderbilt Avenue in Fort Greene. The interiors have been beautifully preserved and the home modernized, but not so much so that it’s lost its old-world charm. The five-bedroom Second Empire townhouse was built in 1899 and is part of the Fort Greene Historic District. It’s asking $3,995,000, and has a studio apartment in the basement level for added income.

The drama starts as soon as you enter the parlor floor through gorgeous wooden doors with cut glass. There’s more etched glass on the doors in the living room; other historic details you’ll find include original wood floors, plaster ceiling medallions, moldings, and antique mantels. Throughout are vintage mid-century Italian light fixtures.

Behind the living room is the dining room and kitchen. The mantle, ceiling medallion, and windows lend a historic feel, while high-end appliances and a polished white quartz waterfall counter keep things modern.

The entire second floor has been configured as the master suite. Facing the street is a sitting room with a working fireplace, off which is a dressing room. In the rear, the bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, two closets, a full wall of built-ins framing the bed, and a lovely balcony.

There are two more bedrooms (one with a working fireplace, one with a decorative fireplace), an office, and a full bathroom on the third floor.

The basement holds the studio apartment, which opens to a small rear yard. For the owners, this floor also has a laundry room, storage, and wine cellar.
