In the late 1700's Garden Place was the garden for the estate of Philip Livingston, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Today, it is considered by many to be the most beautiful block in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District and one of the most peaceful and private locations in New York City.

The townhouse is in the classic Neo-Grec style with full brownstone facade and Eastlake-influenced motifs. It is one in a row of nine houses designed by the Brooklyn architectural firm of Parfitt Brothers, built in 1880 by James W. Dearing. An elegant 12 room single-family home, it is expertly renovated, and has high ceilings and windows facing east and west, a wide skylight over the middle parlor floor and another over the staircase, providing abundant natural light.

Positioned on a 19.17' x 95' lot, the townhouse is 60' deep on the garden and parlor floors, and 40' deep on each of the three floors above. Interior space measures approximately 5100 sf, with 1100 sf of exterior space, including a magnificently landscaped garden and two terraces.

The deep double parlor floor has two wood-burning fireplaces and an open kitchen. The terrace off the rear parlor overlooks the garden. Above the parlor floor there are three floors with 6 bedrooms. The home has 4 full baths, excellent storage, and outstanding closet space.

The second floor includes a large east-facing master bedroom with wood-burning fireplace, a full bath, laundry, dressing room, and a library, which opens to a full-width terrace. The third floor features two bedrooms, each with carved white marble fireplaces, and a full bath. The fourth floor has three bedrooms and full bath.

The garden level has a staircase from the parlor floor and under-stoop entrance. Along the galley there is a kitchenette, wine closet, full bath, study or guest room, closet and storeroom. The galley leads to the 22' dining/recreation room with window wall opening to the garden.

Details of the renovation include restoration of the staircase, hardwood flooring, plasterwork and moldings, fireplaces, custom cabinetry, and marble and limestone floors in the kitchen, entryways and garden level. System upgrades include electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, security and 4-zone central air conditioning.

Historically significant, beautifully sited, and renovated to a high standard, this townhouse is in move-in condition and is shown by appointment.
