Welcome to 94 Hicks Street, the crown jewel of Brooklyn Heights. Originally built in 1868, this majestic 5 story semi-detached home has retained all it's pre-war beauty from the restored brownstone exterior, ornate cornices, and iron railing. A rare 23 wide' home, sitting on a 25' by 100 lot, the home itself boasts over 5,300 of interior square feet and a side alley walkway. This home is ready for it's next owner to create a majestic single family mansion or keep as an income producing rental property perfect for a 1031 exchange or to live in while also collecting rental income.
This beautifully intact house is differentiated from the adjoining brownstone row by curved lintels, an elaborate cornice, an arched recessed doorway with elegant scrolls and keystone, and a mansard roof. The latter style was so fashionable in the 1860s that such roofs were being added to many earlier Federal and Greek Revival buildings in New York.
Currently configured as 5 units, the interior of the house is just as grand as the exterior, with many details still in tact like crown moldings and marble and iron fire place mantles. The ground floor duplex has undergone a high end gut renovation as a 2 or 3 bed unit with open concept kitchen and living room leading out to the well manicured backyard. The kitchen is outfitted with Subzero and Wolf appliances with vented hood. This unit can easily be combined with the 2nd floor studio to make a massive 1900sqft duplex with a finished basement to be over 2,800sqft! The upper 3 floors are all set up as floor through 1 or 1.5 bed units, with renovated kitchens. Combine the top 2 floors to have an amazing upper duplex that could easily rent for 10K per month.
94 Hicks is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Brooklyn Heights history. The home can be delivered vacant except for the 3rd floor unit, which has a lease expiring in December. You do not want to miss the opportunity to own this rare home in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Showings will be by appointment only to serious and qualified buyers. Setup available by request.
