Property Description

Available for the first time in 60 years, don't miss this opportunity to own a rare 22' wide light-filled six bed, four bath, brick townhouse that feels like a country cottage in the absolute heart of Brooklyn Heights. Wonderfully maintained and enjoyed by multiple generations, this beauty has historic charms throughout and a perfect layout where you can live as-is. A lush garden easily accessible off of both the parlor floor and the garden level offers a rarely-seen grove of full-grown evergreen trees, lending unmatched privacy and quiet when in reality you are steps from the best amenities that Brooklyn has to offer. Within just a few blocks in every direction you will find public and private schools, every single subway line, Brooklyn Bridge Park, world-class dining and shopping, and Manhattan a quick jaunt over the Brooklyn Bridge. Indulge all of your senses in the rich character of this landmarked property while experiencing the conveniences and low-density for which prime Brooklyn Heights has become so beloved. Enter up a majestic stoop to a dramatic double parlor complete with floor-to-ceiling casement windows, oak floors, high ceilings, ionic columns, and ceiling and base moldings. The front parlor is currently being used as a glamorous formal living room and even includes a real wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround and a hand-carved wood mantle, perfect for cozy evenings at home. The back parlor doubles as a formal dining room and a casual sitting area and feels like a sunroom upstate with its wall of divided-light windows overlooking the lush yard, and a custom built-in love seat. A perfectly preserved dumbwaiter easily transports your fancy meals from the sunny oversized eat-in-kitchen on the garden level up to the formal dining room, or just use it to easily ferry cocktails for casual entertaining with the use of this floor's wet bar. Head downstairs to an oversized eat-in kitchen off the garden where daily dining is a treat and you will find chef's amenities at every turn. Pamper your inner chef with a massive kitchen island with Blue-Eyes' granite, Sub Zero Fridge, Dacor range, Thermador 5-burner stove, Miele dishwasher, and timeless Christopher Peacock French country-inspired cabinetry and hand-painted porcelain backsplash. In addition, there are two pantry closets AND room for an 8-person everyday dining table. A full bathroom and a real laundry room on this floor make living easy, while a comfortable front room makes the perfect formal dining room/sitting room/home office or guest suite with easy kitchen access. Enjoy Al Fresco dining on a bluestone patio right off the kitchen, or circulate easily inside and out between the parlor and kitchen floors via the fully realized English garden. The upper two floors offer a total of five spacious bedrooms and three additional full bathrooms. The current owners use the bedroom on the 3rd floor with West-facing garden views as a Primary suite with three sizable closets and an extension that affords a fully windowed ensuite Primary bath. An oversized bedroom at the front accesses a full bathroom from the hall and also offers charming tree-lined views of historic architecture. The extra width of this wonderful home allows the next owner to transform this entire floor into a Primary suite and still keep the open hallway to access the three additional bedrooms on the top floor. Flooded with light on both sides, all three bedrooms on the top floor have great closets, and the bedroom in the back also enjoys another extension that currently acts a dressing room. Custom millwork, high-ceilings, original moldings, stunning hardwood floors, great closets, the perfect layout, and East and West exposures for light all day long, are just some of this home's additional signature features. There is even a full cellar for all of your storage needs. And if this isn't enough, don't miss the fact that when you walk out the door you will have every restaurant, shop, subway, ferry, park, and parking garages at your doorstep. This is a rare opportunity to live on a block that has all of the conveniences and charms of the West Village, without the crowds, and with a neighborly feel unrivaled in any other neighborhood in all of Brooklyn or New York City.

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.
