257 Hicks Street is a charming, two-family townhouse in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Set on a beautiful block overlooking Grace Church, this classic home is only steps from Brooklyn Bridge Park!
A grand stoop entry leads to a classic parlor floor with marvelous period details, including an original stair, banister, and spindles; crown moldings; fireplace mantels; and inlaid floors. In the rear is a partial extension with a well-appointed chef’s kitchen and a stunning glass window wall. This open and airy wall of glass opens to a spacious deck overlooking the gardens of Joralemon Street. This creates the perfect entertainment floor, allowing for the seamless and connected style of living that today’s buyer is seeking.
The two floors above are configured as 4 bedrooms, with a spacious master suite, a laundry room, and well-proportioned secondary bedrooms and bathroom. The original stair continues all the way through the house, offering a glimpse of the fine craftsmanship of 19th-century Brownstone Brooklyn. The garden floor is currently a separate rental apartment, but can easily be combined with the rest of the house to recreate a grand, single-family home.
The curb appeal and grandeur of this classic townhome is a rare and historic treat. Montague Street and Atlantic Avenue are only steps away, offering countless neighborhood amenities, shops, restaurants, and cafes, and Manhattan is minutes away by car or subway. Indeed, Number 257 offers an incredible opportunity to purchase a well-located and lovingly preserved Brooklyn Heights brownstone and create a custom, bespoke home.
