Historic Brooklyn Heights Townhouse – New to Market – Unique Opportunity!
Historic townhouse on a beautiful tree-lined, cobblestone street in the elegantly-preserved neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. Believed to have been built in 1845 by a lumber merchant (whose ships docked in the harbor right at the end of the street), the house has been lovingly restored and updated by the current owner. Currently set up as a two-family with two duplex apartments — each with 2 Bedrooms / 2 Baths, Living Room plus Dining Room — the approx. 3,000 SF, 4-story house has a large rear garden area and a very useful basement for washer/dryer hookup, storage, and playroom areas. With original wide-plank, heart-of-pine floors throughout, three wood-burning and two decorative fireplaces, and lots of detail such as exposed brick walls and beamed, high ceilings, the house also boasts a large, two-story sunroom with radiant-heated floors off the lower duplex, and a generously-sized balcony off the second duplex – both of which look out into a peaceful, private garden. Modern updates include double thick, double glazed windows throughout, a brand-new water heater for the entire building, as well as two brand-new Lenox furnaces which provide heated gas/forced air while separately metering each duplex unit for heat and Central Air Conditioning. Picturesque and convenient location: just steps away from beautiful New York City skyline views directly across the river from the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade, less than a block from the new Brooklyn Bridge waterfront park system with its extensive array of recreational and entertainment facilities, and just a few blocks from Brooklyn’s bustling Downtown Metro Tech area with its vast array of shopping, dining, and excellent transportation hub choices (including convenient stops for 2,3,4,5,R,A,C,and F subway train lines).
