Property Description

Pristine five story home with an elevator from the cellar to the top floor for spectacular 360 degree views!

A gracious home nestled among other landmark homes on this iconic Brooklyn Heights block. This home was built in 1858 in the Anglo-Italianate style. It was completely restored with meticulous care in 2009. The result is a home with its past architectural details enhanced with modern conveniences for today's living.

When you enter this home, you are immediately drawn to the architectural beauty of the entrance hall leading to a beautifully restored curving staircase with mahogany steps and banister to the fourth floor. The dining room with its wood burning fireplace is to the right. There is an openness that belies the fact that it is 18' wide x 40' deep. It is a well-proportioned, 3500 square foot home with comfortable living space and a finished cellar. The living room, dining room, front hall and library have new custom plaster moldings. As you pass through to the gourmet's delight kitchen there is a powder room off the hall. The large wall of Marvin Ultimate windows and French doors bring the garden into the house. You will enjoy your coffee in the morning while peering out onto the serenity of nature, with secure, unobstructed views of a verdant park in the warm months and Wall Street views in the cooler months.

There is an Ipe wood deck leading from the kitchen. The two-level backyard, with a slate patio on the lower level and a slate walk way on the upper, has a large, two tiered fountain surrounded by beautiful perennials.

On the second floor, the Parlor Floor, you enter the living room with its wood burning fireplace. There is also a powder room. You pass into the library with floor to ceiling bookcases and a woodburning fireplace. There are Boston Acoustic ceiling speakers in the living room and library as well as in the dining room and kitchen.

On the third floor, there is a primary bedroom with wall-to-wall closets. The master bath, nestled between the primary bedroom and the study, has a separate shower, a Bain Ultra Air Tub and radiant floor heat in a spa-like setting. Overlooking the garden is a study which could also be used as a bedroom.

The fourth floor has two bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms and each equipped with separate showers. In addition, there are built-in Murphy beds in both rooms. There is a full-sized washer dryer concealed in the front bedroom. From this floor, you can access the roof deck with its magnificent views of the harbor and New York City Skyline.

There is a separate, fully equipped and renovated apartment with one bedroom, and a full kitchen and bath in the garden level of the house. This could be added to the rest of the house to make it a one family by opening the elevator wall and the staircase to the first floor. Or it can stay as a rental.

The cellar has been completely remodeled with 2 cedar closets, a wine closet and a recreation/fitness room as well as the mechanical rooms.

New custom shutters were installed in the front of the house. Baldwin hardware is used throughout the house. New mechanicals include all new electrical systems, 5 zone heating/air conditioning, new plumbing including waste pipes and radiators. New gas Boiler, new security system and a whole house WiFi water detection device. The entire house has an intercom system.

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.
