The daughter of actress Isabella Rossellini and the granddaughter of the legendary Ingrid Bergman, model Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, has bought a Brooklyn mansion for $2.2 million.
Located at 23 South Elliott Place in the Fort Greene neighborhood right next to Downtown Brooklyn, the house was built in 1899. It has 2, 880 square feet over four floors, with three large windows on the three upper floors. A stone staircase leads up to the main entrance from the street level.
There are hardwood floors, high ceilings and a skylight on the roof. There is a small deck behind the first floor with stairs that lead down to a backyard. It includes five spacious bedrooms, a stunning center staircase, pier mirrors, mahogany banisters and newel posts, detailed ceiling medallions and wainscoting.
The house is a legal two family (simplex with owners triplex above) which is easily for one family with all of the original details fully intact. There are plaster moldings, woodwork pocket doors, some etched glass, original mantles, deck and beautiful deep lot.
The front of the home has a wide stoop with flaring cast iron balustrade and heavy octagonal newel posts that lead right up to an original pair of double doors.
