The Susan Elkins House

By

The Elkins House Condominium is a truly one-of-a-kind residential restoration and conversion project in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and the last remaining of its type. An 1850's wood frame villa masterpiece and the first house in Crown Heights, is now a perfect marriage of old and new. With soaring ceilings, exposed brick and steel, and a sleek modern finish of the absolute highest quality and execution, this project is worthy of the building’s history. Walking up the pathway to this home is like a step back into the days of open farmland in Brooklyn. Walking through the door is a step into a modern and exquisite home.
