A rare offering. At last -a unique opportunity to own one of the few remaining federal houses in historic Brooklyn Heights. This beautiful, single-family house, built in 1826, retains intricate historical details, including restored, original moldings and floors. A sophisticated renovation has captured period charm packaged in a contemporary envelope.
All the mechanical functions have been totally updated with zoned climate control, radiant heating, and a snow melting system for the patio. The very private garden has mature plantings to ensure year-round privacy. All outdoor landscaping in both the garden and the upper terrace is irrigated. There are seven fireplaces (six operational) as well as generous closets and storage spaces throughout.
The garden level, with fully radiant floors, contains a guest suite, complete with a kitchen, a fully equipped gym, and a wonderful family room. Below is an ample basement with two separate storage spaces.
The parlor floor, with 10 1/2 foot ceilings, has a grand hall and staircase. The foyer opens to a bright living room connecting to an entertainment-sized dining room complete with a bar closet and wine cooler. A state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen including subzero and Wolf appliances overlooks the garden.
The second level consists of three large, very delightful bedrooms, two baths, and a convenient laundry room.
The top floor is unique and quite special with ceilings soaring to over 13 feet. There is a large bedroom suite with a spa-like, radiant heated bath.
Also on this level is a library/ office, with its own beverage cooler, opening to a charming, landscaped terrace.
With Sonos throughout the home and surround sound in the family room, this glorious piece of New York history is in mint condition and must be seen to be appreciated.
