Norman Mailer wrote his Pulitzer Prize winning books on the fourth floor of his home in Brooklyn Heights. The nautically themed space is iconic, like its creator, with a two-story glass and wood atrium and a sloping wood ceiling recalling the curves of a grand sailboat. There are multiple outdoor terraces with sweeping views of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. Approximately 1636 interior square feet, the unit has three bedrooms and two baths, of which one of the bedrooms and baths is in a separate unit on the third floor with the same amazing river views. A third bath is an easy addition on the fourth floor. The architecturally interesting skylight brings excellent light into the interior space.
Built in 1840, 142 Columbia Heights is a landmarked four-story, walk-up brownstone on a prime block overlooking the promenade and the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
If you are looking for a unique and special home and want to own a piece of history, this may be the place for you.
