About this property

THIS PROPERTY IS SOLD. Welcome home to a 3,600 square foot Victorian Sandstone dripping with details. The L-shaped stoop is decorated with historic iron railings and newel posts. The doorway surround is composed of fluted console brackets with foliated capitals and finials supporting an arched entablature. Charming across three floors plus garden level and lower cellar, the home is configured as a single-family with six bedrooms.

As you enter the parlor, notice the fine French parquet flooring. Your eye will be drawn to the waist-high wainscoting, climbing lincrusta and plaster walls, rising to crown moldings and 12-foot ornate ceilings. Light pours into the parlor through south facing double-windows with arch-headed stained-glass transoms. The second and third floors have six bedrooms and a full bath. Throughout the home you will find five carved-oak mantels, Victorian tiles, and museum and magazine quality Gilded Age details.

History

This Romanesque/Renaissance Revival townhouse was designed by the prolific Brooklyn architect Isaac Delamater Reynolds, in 1891. The home was first owned by John Furhrer, the Vice President of the Germania (Guardian) Life Insurance Company. The current owner, famed photographer David Armstrong, used the home as a studio, and backdrop for publications like his book titled 615 Jefferson Avenue, and French Vogue.
