The house at 21 Grace Court Alley, one of those Brooklyn Heights secret streets, came on the rental market in September, hoping for $11,500/month. Anyone who passed it up because they were seeking a more permanent place, you're now in luck?the listing is back, and this time it's for sale. The asking price is $3.5 million for two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms. What it lacks in space, perhaps it makes up for in charm.
Here's what the brokerbabble has to say for itself:
Drive in to a private parking potico at the end of the cul-de-sac, suitable for two vehicles. From the portico, one enters the secluded lower level vestibule of the triplex. Adjoining the vestibule there is a very private two bedroom suite served by one bath along with a laundry room and access to the garden. The mid-level open plan living area looks out over gardens and is flooded with light from a large domed skylight. The living room features a wood burning fireplace, which separates the adjoinging dining area. A well appointed chef's kitchen features 'Verdi' marble counter tops and premium appliances including a double width Subzero, twin drawer Fisher Paykel dishwasher and a wine refrigerator. There is a half bath on this level and access to a covered porch for grilling and summer dining. The third level is used as a den/home office and opens to a roof terrace. This unique carriage house was constructed in 1994 by a noted Brooklyn architect with the blessing of the New York City Landmarks Commission. And the floorplan:
