“Rarely do carriage houses in this secluded Brooklyn Heights enclave become available,” says the brokerbabble for this stunning home at 6 Grace Alley Court. The last time it was available was in 2011, when it sold for a mere $2.7 million. This time it returns showing off a beautiful renovation and a not-so-beautiful price tag—$10 million to be precise—and enough to warrant a spot on the list of Brooklyn’s most expensive homes for sale. Is it worth the hefty price? Let’s take a look.
The 19th century home was designed by Baxt Ingui architects and features more than 4,700 square feet of space. Sporting a newly restored facade and completely remastered interiors, this home is nothing short of breathtaking. The open concept living room boasts a glass ceiling and brick wall with a wood-burning fireplace before adjoining the kitchen. Oak wood cabinets with matching floors are abundant within the huge kitchen and dining area with access to the private garden is found here.
A set of stairs leading to the upper level invites you to where the three bedrooms and two bathrooms reside. The rooftop level is comprised of a penthouse that can function as a guest suite or home office and features a service kitchen and access to the home’s roof garden.
The lower level consists of a finished basement with storage and a full bathroom. High-tech amenities include central air conditioning, heated floors, built-in sound system, and a controllable lighting system.
