Property Description

Unit 1 of this classic 20' wide brownstone at 168 Lafayette Ave is a 2 bed, 1 full bath, 2 half bath duplex with private access to the landscaped garden and clean cellar. With exposures to the North/South, this home enjoys direct sunlight all day through the Southern-facing windows with unobstructed views of the sky.

Entering through the garden level brings you to a lovely entry foyer. With both bedrooms on the garden level, this home is configured for ultimate privacy. The primary bedroom features a renovated 5-fixture en-suite marble bathroom with dual vanity, oversized tub, and rain shower enclosed in glass. All closets have built-ins for excellent storage potential. The 2nd bedroom is great for guests or as a home office/nursery and there is a convenient powder room in the hallway.

Upstairs leads to the magnificent parlor floor - an entertainer's dream with a formidable kitchen, massive living room, powder room, and large deck with a spiral staircase leading to the 32' deep backyard. Wonderful details grace this level such as soaring ceilings of nearly 12' and original details such as the stained glass pocket sliding doors, decorative fireplaces with marble mantles, hardwood floors, crown molding, and plaster work. Despite preserving many of these original details, the home features modern upgrades such as updated mechanicals, new appliances, and mini-split AC/heating! There is also radiator heating for that additional classic feel.

Last but certainly not least is the cellar - clean and useful for additional storage or even a home gym with nearly 7' ceilings. The cellar also contains a full-sized vented washer/dryer and utility sink as well as all updated mechanicals.

168 Lafayette Avenue is a classic 2-family brownstone located in the heart of Fort Greene, one of Brooklyn's most desirable, convenient, and tree-dense neighborhoods. This special home is in close proximity to many subway and bus lines, restaurants, and points of interest such as the Barclays Center, BAM, Whole Foods, and Fort Greene park with its weekend farmer's market.

Pets allowed case-by-case, no smoking, no short term rentals.

Note: The listed square footage of 1,800 is for the garden and parlor levels. Including the cellar, the total square footage would be approximately 2,600. Outdoor square footage (deck and garden) is approximately 1,000. The grayed out area in the Parlor level of the floor plan represents Unit 2's private entrance and is not part of Unit 1.
