Old meets new inside this freshly converted townhouse in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg – listed for $3.7m.
The Neo-Grec property dates back to 1881 and sits within The Fillmore Place Historic District, (the only landmarked block in the neighbourhood, according to listing agents Paul Murphy and Carol Wang of Corcoran.)
It’s been converted into a single-family occupancy, and given a top-to-toe minimalist makeover that draws attention to its historic bones.
Bricks and ceiling joists inside 11 Fillmore Place have been given a fresh lick of white paint, and hardwood floors installed across the three-bedroom Williamsburg home. There’s plenty of drama in the living room thanks to its lofty 19-ft-high ceilings and a custom-designed wood burning fireplace.
A library and bedroom fill the Brooklyn property’s second floor and two further bedrooms are found on the top of the house (there’s also an extra bedroom suite in the basement). Other perks include built-in storage and shelving across the property, as well as a built-in speaker system.
