This ultimately pretty, two family brick townhouse was built around 1850 and, nestled in historic Cobble Hill, minutes from transportation, stores and restaurants has been the loving home of the same family for thirty years. An oasis in a otherwise bustling neighborhood, this cherished , federal style home with its extra large windows offers sunfilled rooms, original wide floor boards and tin ceilings throughout, original shutters, wood burning fireplace, elaborate mouldings and a two floor extension in the back. The parlor floor features the living and dining rooms with an open kitchen. The extension houses the pantry area and opens up to a deep, tranquil, private garden with pergola in the back and a mature Norwegian Maple tree, a lovely Burch tree and a Honey Locust tree. The two floors above have three bedrooms each, tin ceilings, skylights and views. The garden floor below is presently a rental apartment with its own entrance, a garland stove, and extension in the back leading directly into the garden. 13 Dean is a pure jewel and unique for its proportions, its garden and in particular for its preservation of the many intact original details. Whereas this extraordinary home provides for ample rental income, the house can as easily be brought back to a historic single family gem.
Additional features of this building include: original shutters parlor floor windows, original wide floor boards,, tin ceilings, wood burning fireplace, and intact elaborate mouldings.
