Apartment Details








Square Feet



Upon entering the gated front garden of this historic pre-war Fort Greene co-op, and through the building's central corridor, you are welcomed into an enchanting 1,200 square foot interior garden, off of which is your own private entrance to an upper duplex townhouse home.

With approximately 1,400 square feet, this very rare and special property offers incredible scale, light and sanctuary. On the lower primary level, an open, windowed kitchen leads you into a living room bathed in southern light through its three original 7-foot-tall casement windows. Two bedrooms—one with southern exposure and the other with northern—a full bathroom, and a large storage closet complete this floor. The upper level, which presently functions as an open, loft-style space with separate media/living and dining areas, could easily have a third master-bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Three massive skylights and double exposures to the north and south flood this floor with light throughout the day, while an approximately 300 SF terrace offers additional space for entertaining and private retreat. Other property features include a vented in-unit washer and dryer, and a dedicated storage room in the basement.

One block off Fort Greene Park, 147 Lafayette could not be more ideal with its close proximity to the weekly Brooklyn Farmer's Market, BAM Cultural Centers, renowned restaurants, such as Walters, Prospect, and No. 7; shopping, pastry/coffee shops and the C train are less than a block away, and access to over 9 subway lines is nearby at Atlantic Terminal.

There is a $167 monthly co-op assessment for this apartment, temporary for just this year.

Fort Greene, a tree-lined neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn, is located directly across from Lower Manhattan and is situated just north of Prospect Park. Fort Greene is charming, thanks in part to its tranquil, brownstone-studded streets, while also maintaining a youthful demeanor. Home to many cafes, trendy boutiques, and famous performance centers like The Brooklyn Academy of Music, Fort Greene is a cultural hotspot for writers, musicians, and city dwellers looking for a pace that’s a bit more laid back.
