Property Description:

First offering of this special property in over a decade. A house like this is rarely available and represents one of the most unique offerings you will ever see in Brooklyn. This 31 room mansion located on The Gold Coast on stately Clinton Avenue makes a majestic statement. Built c. 1884 for Behrend H. Huttman a chemist that commuted to Manhattan. This spectacular residence retains most of the original architecture and has stood the test of time. Complete with amazing curb appeal with a 60' wide front garden and majestic columns it's unlike anything you will see for years to come. The lot size is unusually large at 60 X 105, built an amazing 35' wide! This stunning example of a Queen Anne and Neo Grec home has a two car garage and 7000 square feet of living space. This historically significant block was once home to Charles Pratt, a partner in John D. Rockefeller's company Standard Oil. Some of the most prolific architects of the 19th century designed homes on this landmark block. There is additional build air rights /floor area ratio (F.A.R.) up to about 5,700 square feet. Buyer must independently verify.
