The apartment has been renovated, however the marble mantel is original.


It's not cheap, but this two-bedroom, one-bath Fort Greene co-op does have a lot of charming extras that make it appealing. Listed for $899,000 plus $768 maintenance, 386 Adelphi St., #4, is on the top floor of a four-apartment co-op building. 

Completely renovated, its west-facing living room gets lots of light, and features an original marble mantel and wood-burning fireplace, as well as floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving.

There are hardwood floors are throughout, and the apartment has crown moldings and is pet-friendly. One minus: it looks like its a third-floor walk-up. 

For the warmer months, there's a deck with a custom awning right off the living room that provides tree top views. 

The open kitchen has white cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a peninsula with a breakfast bar. 

The master bedroom has oversized windows and a California Closet; the second, smaller bedroom has a deep, walk-in closet. 

The renovated bath features modern fixtures and finishes, and the apartment has a stacked washer/dryer. 

The co-op offers extra storage and bike storage, and the building is conveniently located near several destinations in the area, such as BAM, Fort Greene Park, Barclays Center and Atlantic Center. The G train is a few blocks away at Fulton Street or Clinton-Washington Avenues.
