Opportunity on a Coveted Block

exterior.jpgIN CONTRACTThe “Places” in Brooklyn Heights, block-long havens between the main streets, have long been desired for their low traffic, low street noise, and the feeling of community they foster. This turn-of-the-20th-century single-family home is mid-block on the most convenient of the Places. The house retains many of that era’s details and awaits your vision to make it your own.The entry on garden level exhibits one of those details: the original service entrance and hallway still exists, leading to a large, open kitchen with center island and a cozy, casual dining banquette. The kitchen has a built-in china hutch, enormous pantries, and a clever kitchen office tucked into that service hall. The family entrance leads to a fireplaced reception room, and a passage to the kitchen with coat closet and a half-bath.A sweeping staircase with original woodwork leads to a landing on the double-parlor floor, and more of those elegant details: a butler’s pantry with wet bar and a working dumbwaiter serve this public floor. A formal front parlor with fireplace and original shutters in floor-to-ceiling windows offers a bright gathering place. The spacious dining room is also warmed by a fireplace and overlooks the leafy garden through a large window and door.The master bedroom floor has a large back bedroom overlooking the garden with en suite bath. The landing offers access to a linen closet with washer and dryer, and a full bath. The front bedroom on this floor has been converted to a large, sunny office with fireplace. When you arrive at the upper bedroom floor, with a skylight above, you’ll find two additional bedrooms with a smaller nursery or private office, separated by a pocket door. There is a large walk-in storage room on the landing along with another full bath.Offered at $2.75mm.
