Landmarked Brooklyn Heights townhouse asks $14M after swanky renovation

New, 17 comments

The 6,200 square foot home features six bedrooms and a rooftop hot tub

This massive, landmarked townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, just a short walk away from Brooklyn Bridge Park, recently underwent a gut renovation, converting a former multi-tenant building into a single family home. It’s now on the market asking a whopping $14.15 million, making it one of the priciest listings in Brooklyn right now.

The five-story house features six-bedrooms spread out over 6,200 square feet, and the renovation undertaken by interior design firm Studio DB has fitted out the space with some pretty swanky finishes. One of those is a three-story skylit staircase that starts on the ground floor, and is done up with custom walnut and a blackened steel handrail. The ground floor also houses the kitchen, and the living and the dining room, the latter of which of has 12-foot tall ceilings and 10-foot tall windows. This floor opens onto a rear garden.

The floor above that has the master bedroom, master bath, an enormous walk-in closet/dressing room, and a library with a fireplace. Three bedrooms are located on the floor above that, and one of the roof terraces here comes equipped with a hot tub. Some of the other standout features in this house, which was originally built in 1834, include a wine cellar that can store 300 bottles, three fireplaces, a media room, a motorized garage door, and views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Manhattan skyline beyond.
