A Heights Landmark — An Enduring Value

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Remsen Street’s tree-lined blocks encompass some of Brooklyn Heights’s most distinctive homes, from stately mansions to elegant rowhouses. This is one of the finest, now offered at a price that represents today’s market.

A winning combination of period detail and warm family spaces, this early 1840s brick townhouse, located just a block away from the Promenade, contains more than 5,000 square feet of thoughtfully designed living area on its four floors. Its second-story bow makes it one of the most interesting of the Heights’s Greek Revival façades, and the home has been published in surveys of Brooklyn historic neighborhoods.

Behind that façade, you’ll discover intact period details, including banisters, ceiling medallions, wainscoting, crown moldings, mirrors and mantelpieces. Leaded glass accents doorways and windows, and provides a colorful conclusion to a walk up the staircase. But more than a showcase for antique detail, the home has been designed to create a quiet sense of calm and serenity.

The garden floor features a warm, inviting family room with built-in bookshelves flanking a fireplace. An ample guest bedroom, a real laundry facility, plentiful storage, and access to the garden complete the floor. After entering through the leaded-glass-framed front door, the parlor floor flows from an elegant entrance foyer, opening to a south-facing, sunlit living room. The formal dining room eases elegant entertaining with built-in cabinetry and fireplace. An extension to the rear created a spacious kitchen with a cozy, fireplaced sitting and breakfast room, a real room that will encourage gathering. Glass doors lead to a leafy landscaped garden, and skylights bring in more light from above.

One floor above lies a real discovery, the full-floor master suite. The centerpiece is a fireplaced, sunlit bedroom with an adjoining sitting room, a space for personal reflection glowing with light from the leaded-glass window tracery in that distinctive bow. You’ll want to linger in the spa-like bath with dual sinks, a soaking tub with whirpool, and separate steam-shower enclosure. The room-sized dressing area includes built-ins and its own decorative fireplace. The home’s upper floor houses three additional spacious bedrooms and updated baths.In the1840s, just as Brooklyn became a city, successful New York merchants made Remsen Street their home, constructing a row of sturdy, stately brick homes on the tree-shaded street. Those homes remain, updated for our comfort, but with elegant echoes of the past.

Now offered at $5.6 million.
