We hope that fashion designer Ulla Johnson is as good at designing interiors as she is at clothes, because she just dropped $3.8 million on a new Brooklyn townhouse, according to city records.

Built in the 1850s, the Greek Revival–Italianate style townhouse in the Fort Greene neighborhood is currently configured as a triplex over a garden-level rental, per the listing with Joan Goldberg of Brown Harris Stevens. And, we assume, that some unit combinations are in its future.

It comes with a bucket load of character, from the original marble mantels, pocket doors, and ornate plasterwork, to the exposed brick walls, wooden beams and bold color scheme.

Inclusive of the garden-level rental, the house comes with a total of six bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a terrace, a garden and wine storage in the cellar.

Johnson, who earlier this year opened her first boutique at 15 Bleecker Street, must be a fan of the neighborhood. She currently lives nearby with her husband and their three children.
