Rare Brooklyn Heights Townhouse - $8,250,000
Rare Brooklyn Heights Townhouse
Impeccably renovated, this gorgeous residence is situated on the best block in Brooklyn Heights. Standing five stories tall and encompassing some 5,500 square feet of elegant living spaces, the house is taller and deeper than any of its neighbors. It is also in museum quality condition, having been painstakingly restored with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
THE RESIDENCE The floor plan is currently configured with four bedrooms, six full and one half baths, and a plethora of charming public areas. A formal dining room, eat-in chef's kitchen, recreation room with a woodburning fireplace, and 20- by 20-foot garden with a beautiful mature maple tree make for spectacular entertaining, while the fully equipped gymnasium and his and her office with a seating area provide added conveience. The residence could be readily converted to six bedrooms, each with a full bath. For perfect comfort, central air-conditioning is employed with floor-by-floor zoning. A 1,100-square-foot cellar provides a temperature-controlled wine storage area.
THOUGHTFUL DESIGN Fine architectural touches are found throughout, beginning with seven fireplaces. Original marble mantels and fully restored moldings, stave-core doors, and solid-brass door hardware are other quality elements. The internal staircase has been entirely rebuilt with reinforced steel custom fabricated connection pieces, and the black walnut treads, railings, and balusters have been hand-stripped and refinished to bring them back to their original beauty.
