Description

The crown jewel of Fort Greene! Built in 1869 by Brooklyn builder William A. Brush, this sumptuous 5-story home exudes grandeur and charm on every level. Ideally located less than 200 ft from Fort Greene Park, this 22’ wide Italianate beauty is a true generational home for the discerning buyer. Graciously maintained and updated by the current owners, 11 South Oxford Street is filled with sought-after original historic elements including solid mahogany pocket doors, two grand pier mirrors and original fireplaces on every floor. The home also features Lepage wood double paned windows, original plasterwork and heavy wood mouldings throughout. The layout is elegant and functional: A grand double parlor with 13’ ceilings leads into a formal dining room overlooking the garden.

Downstairs you’ll find a more informal living room/media room and eat-in kitchen leading directly out to the lush garden with mature plantings and Bluestone patio. As you head upstairs to the three bedroom levels, you’ll first encounter the primary suite, which encompasses the entire third floor and includes a walk-in closet and office or dressing room. On the 4th and 5th floors are four additional bedrooms and two baths, as well as an office overlooking the leafy treetops of South Oxford Street. The roof was refinished this past year. For those who refuse to compromise on location, 11 South Oxford offers sheer perfection.

The block itself is particularly quiet and low traffic as it is one-way and not on the main traffic routes. Step off the stoop and turn the corner into Fort Greene Park- one of the most cherished parks in all of NYC. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (Central Park, Prospect Park), this green oasis offers gorgeous lawns for picnicking on sunny days, an amazing community of dog lovers and cherished off-leash hours, and cultural events including summer movie evenings.

There is also the famous Saturday farmers and artisan market- arguably one of the best in the city. All this, and more- with impeccable dining options from staples like Miss Ada, Saraghina Caffè and Roman’s, to new and acclaimed additions such as Sailor and Theodora, only to name a few. Cultural offerings abound in Fort Greene, with the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Polonsky Shakespeare Theater, Barclays Center and Mark Morris Dance Group all nearby. There are also ample transportation options, with the C and G trains down the block and nearly every train in the city connecting at Atlantic Ave / Barclays Center just a few blocks away. 11 South Oxford is a grand and elegant home for the ages- a rare opportunity to own a piece of NYC history.
