Property Description

Rare opportunity to purchase a Mid-19th-Century “Mews Block” Carriage House with original appointments located In the heart of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District.

The 2,500 sf floor-thru, two level, eight room single family residence was originally used as a carriage house and stables (or “mews”) for the brownstone mansions along neighboring Remsen and Joralemon Streets. Named after the iconic Grace Episcopal Church (circa 1847), Grace Court Alley is one of New York City’s most coveted “mews” cul-de-sacs.

The property has retained many of its original 1800s design appointments including the beautifully maintained 30 foot wide red brick and brownstone facade. Original design elements have been thoughtfully maintained including the glass and wood stable doors that cover the garage entrance, the double casement windows in the second floor bedrooms and the antique “hay bale” crane mounted to the facade roofline.

Enter into the brightly lit entryway with its double french doors leading to a spacious reception gallery. Walk past the wrap-around central staircase and enter the massive living and entertaining area complete with a fully functioning, classically designed wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the living room is the eat-in kitchen featuring a full size island with storage, built-in Sub Zero refrigerator and stainless steel Viking stove. The kitchen can comfortably accommodate dining for six.

A 72 sf solarium “bonus room” with full glass ceiling bathes the 500+ sf living and entertaining area in natural light.

The skylit staircase leads to the second level landing where you will find a king size primary bedroom suite featuring a second fully functioning wood-burning fireplace encased in custom cabinetry. The adjoining “true” dressing room offers deep closet storage. Completing the suite of rooms is the primary bath which is also skylit and features a full size shower and soaking tub.

The two second level queen size bedrooms have full size closet storage and share a full size bathroom. A fourth bedroom located on the first level is en suite with a full bath and can be used as a private guest suite or home office.

There is a separate laundry room, with a full size stackable washer and vented dryer, which can be upgraded to include an area for custom pantry storage. The floor plan includes ground floor, off street garage parking for one full size vehicle with additional room for storage. Building mechanicals including hot water heater, central heating unit and air conditioning mechanicals are centralized in a separate ground floor mechanical room.

Grace Court Alley is central to the area’s most popular attractions. Steps to the Remsen Street Brooklyn Promenade entrance for breathtaking views of the lower Manhattan skyline. Blocks to Montague Street shopping, dining and entertainment. Walk to nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park, Atlantic Avenue shopping and Downtown Brooklyn attractions.

Brooklyn Heights | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Brooklyn Heights was Manhattan’s first suburb. The Brooklyn Bridge is a neighborhood draw, offering some of the most beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline, as well as an easily walkable means of commuting into the City. Montague Street has been the main commercial street in Brooklyn Heights since the 1800s, but it is not overly commercialized. Smaller shops help maintain the small neighborhood feel of Brooklyn Heights.

The quaint cobblestoned side streets highlight the historic feel to this lovely, vibrant neighborhood that is filled with exciting and innovative restaurants, stores that have those perfect home decor items, that little black dress you love, and your favorite dry cleaner is right around the corner. Brooklyn Heights is your perfect city within the City.

There are apartments, condos, and co-ops that resulted from the conversion of pre-war residential hotels. The townhouses in Brooklyn Heights are often five stories, instead of the three stories found elsewhere. You’ll also find row houses and stunning single family mansions. Due to the three protected historic districts, opportunities for new construction are limited, and the appearance of the neighborhood seems frozen in the era when these buildings were originally constructed.

Renowned public and private schools make the neighborhood attractive to young families with school-age children. The neighborhood is generally “kid-friendly,” with parks, playgrounds, and quiet streets where kids can still play safely.
