Space is the Thing in Brooklyn Heights – 19 Grace Court, Apt 2-A

By Linecity, January 21, 2020

Sometimes you love an apartment for its raw bones and the fantastic opportunity presented by the four walls before you.  Apartment 2-A at 19 Grace Court in Brooklyn Heights is just that type of space, offering the future occupant eight rooms to create something magical.

19 Grace Court is a small art-deco prewar with just 33 apartments spread over six floors.  It is situated on a charming Brooklyn Heights cul-de-sac with a mix of like-kind buildings and beautiful row houses.  The Grace Church anchors the open end of the block. One street north, at Remsen, you can access the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

According to the current floor plan, this enormous apartment has five bedrooms, living room. dining room, home office and an eat-in kitchen. There are 2.5 baths in total, one of which adjoins the master bedroom.  But these are just walls and while looking at the floor plan one’s imagination could run wild. The apartment rambles from one room to the next; the amount of space seems infinite.

Additional features in this expansive home include an elegant foyer with herringbone floors, substantial crown moldings in the living room and foyer, a newly renovated eat-in kitchen and a washer/dryer which is tucked into the half bath.  French doors add a touch of formality and lead from the foyer to the living room.

And if you want to take occupancy and do nothing, that would work as well.  This is a sponsor apartment that has undergone a complete renovation. Frankly we would have done more but as noted, the bones here are the thing. 

The asking price has now dropped to $1,999,000 from the original ask of $2.4 million back in July 2019.   As a sponsor apartment, there is no formal board approval process. The monthly maintenance is $2,349.  

The apartment is being represented by Lesley Semmelhack, Amanda McAvena and Erik Semmelback of The Corcoran Group.  For more details visit
