This important American home provides a clear view into the past, and shows the best days are yet to come. Built Circa 1846 with the highest degree of craftsmanship and thought, in Classic Greek Revival style. 26 Willow Street has been beautifully renovated, while mindfully preserved for over 165 years. One of four matching prominent townhouses situated on a historic row in the seclusion of Brooklyn Heights' North End.
The Double Parlor has tall ceilings with the detail fully intact. The original details include plaster crown and ceiling moldings, pocket doors, columns, and much more. The matching fireplaces on the parlor are constructed of black marble, veined with gold. Views of the lower Manhattan skyline from back parlor and tea porch are one of the few reminders that you are in the 21st century. There is a service kitchen/bar for entertaining on the parlor floor, and a renovated powder room.
The garden floor consists of the very best kitchen, family room/dining room, full bath, laundry room and office area. The kitchen is crafted with custom cabinetry, honed black granite, and the very best appliances. There is a full wall of glass french doors opening to the deep, sun filled garden. The versatile front room can be used as a dining room, or as an informal family room.
The second floor has two spacious bedrooms, one smaller bedroom, and a fully renovated, windowed bathroom. Each of the large bedrooms are beautifully proportioned with matching white marble fireplaces. The crown moldings are perfect in scale and condition. The front bedrooms face quiet and quaint tree lined Willow Street, with a view of the earliest home in Brooklyn Heights. The lower Manhattan skyline is viewed through the tall windows in the West Facing Master bedroom, or from the Master bedroom's tea porch.
Similar scale and condition and skyline views continue third floor. Two large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom, with another renovated bathroom. Each of the larger bedrooms have matching wood fireplace mantles.
A proper staircase leads to a full, stand up pitched roof attic that can be used as a playroom, den, and additional storage.
