One in an exceptional row of 19th century Greek Revival townhouses stepping down a cobblestone block to the waterfront, this historic Joralemon Street home last sold in 1969. Classically Brownstone Brooklyn, the street is a favorite location for film and photo shoots and most homes have been restored and returned to single family residences. No. 43 is currently configured as an upper and lower duplex and is 21 feet wide, 38 feet deep on a 74 foot lot. It is approximately 3200 square feet on four floors with a full cellar below. The combined room count for the 2 duplex units is 11 rooms, 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2 kitchens. The upper duplex renovation is more recent, while the less renovated, but visually striking double parlor with high ceilings and tall windows of the lower duplex are the hallmark of historic townhouse style. Several houses in the row have opened the peaked roof attic area on the top floor to reveal dramatic ceiling height on that level. Original details include a handsome brick and brownstone facade, ironwork, staircase, plaster moldings, wide plank pine floors and marble fireplaces. The front of the house faces south and the home is filled with light all day. Heavy bluestone paving at the front and the brownstone stoop are in excellent condition. The rear garden is private with a lovely stone wall at the north end abutting Grace Court. Located in Brooklyn Heights, New York City's first Historic District, this handsome townhouse offers the opportunity to create an exceptional home for generations to come. Of the many reasons the Heights has been a desirable place to call home, from the early 1800's to the present day, the strong sense of community residents enjoy is perhaps the most significant.
