Ridiculous Brownstone in Brooklyn Heights Asks $16M

New, 17 comments

Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.


↑ We might as well end the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, because this completely unreal brownstone in Brooklyn Heights makes the rest of this week's entries look like a bunch of crackhouses. Located right above the Promenade, 192 Columbia Heights—a designated landmark built in 1859—is 25'-wide with 14' ceilings, two terraces, a landscaped backyard, and some pretty spectacular views of New York Harbor. It has three working fireplaces with period mantels, floor-to-ceiling bay windows, a walnut-and-cherry staircase, original oak parquet flooring, and walnut wainscoting. Oh, and according to The New York Times, Norman Mailer once had a "private writing aerie" on the fifth floor. It's asking a whopping $16 million, which would set a record for single-family homes in Brooklyn Heights. Yikes yikes yikes.


↑ Up next is this four-story Tudor-style townhouse, also in Brooklyn Heights. It has a a wood-burning fireplace, a "dramatic" formal dining room with wide French doors, a patio and garden, and very green walls. It's asking $5.2 million.


↑ In Windsor Terrace, this three-story townhouse is asking $1.9 million. The place has 11' tin ceilings, original heart pine flooring, a working fireplace, and in the bathroom, subway tiling and a restored clawfoot tub. There's also a very cool little kitchen with what looks like a vintage icebox. The backyard has a custom wood fence and a bluestone patio.


↑ Up next, this three-story brownstone in Bed-Stuy is asking $1.85 million. It's a three-family house with what looks like some nice molding, casing, flooring, and decorative fireplaces. The lighting is weird but it doesn't look like it's the house's fault.


↑ Finally, this five-story Park Slope brownstone is asking $3.4 million. It's a 20'-wide, three-family home with high-earning potential, and although interior shots are lacking, the floorplan is sound and the listing calls it "the Gem of 8th Avenue," so there's that.
