Built in 1870, this historic wood-frame home on a block of gorgeous landmarked townhouses a few blocks from Fort Greene Park is asking $3,495,000. It’s had a recent renovation that bestowed updates like well-concealed central air and an intercom system and high-end finishes like herringbone wood flooring, arriving at that magic mix of contemporary comfort and historic charm. Within the single-family home are four bedrooms, each with its own bath, plus grand entertaining rooms and plenty of family space. A large landscaped rear yard joins a patio and wood deck for indoor-outdoor living in season.

According to records, the home is one of the many properties purchased by Australian investor Alan Dixon’s investment company in the Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy neighborhoods (the purchasing entity, Newtown Jets, LLC, has been associated with Dixon’s Brooklyn purchases). Dixon, known for buying historic homes and renovating them–generally in a considered if pricey fashion–to maintain as rental properties as part of a residential property fund, bought the house for roughly half the current sale price ($1.645 million) in 2013.

In addition to the fancy flooring and elegant moldings, the home’s interiors have been fitted with recessed lighting and other modern finishes. On the garden level, a landscaped yard awaits just out the back door. This lower level boasts an open floor plan that makes it perfect as a media room, family room, guest room, or home office. Also on this floor is a laundry area and powder room–all with radiant heated floors–and lots of storage space.
