Property Description

Extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of the widest and largest Landmarked townhouses in Historic Brooklyn Heights. 76 Pierrepont is 29-feet wide, built 60-feet deep, on a 106-foot deep lot. Measuring approximately 7,250 square feet, plus full basement, this light-filled property is currently configured as a five-family townhouse with fully renovated free-market rentals. While the property is a sound income-generating asset, its additional FAR makes it a single-family conversation opportunity of unprecedented scale. This Gothic Revival Grand Dame offers majestic proportions and meticulously preserved architectural details such as a dramatic restored stoop entry, a striking brick and brownstone facade, bay windows, a mansard roof, oversized windows, 10 marble or ornate wood mantles, original shutters, a wide sweeping staircase, and an elegant entry vestibule with an architectural glass wall divider. Additionally, this house offers a south facing private garden and an additional terrace on every floor. Built in 1844 in New York City's first official historic district as the private home of prominent shipping merchant Henry B. Cromwell, 76 Pierrepont Street is just a block from the world-famous Promenade, near Brooklyn Bridge Park, every amenity on Montague Street, as well as all major hubs of transportation. This trophy property is without a doubt a once in a lifetime opportunity.

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.
