The lovely townhouse has custom everything

Brooklyn’s luxury townhouse market may be cooling off, but that hasn’t stopped pricey new listings from hitting the market since the beginning of the year. The latest: a $6.5 million new-build townhouse on Congress Street in Cobble Hill.

The current owner is Emmanuel Di Donna, a former Sotheby’s exec who runs an eponymous gallery on the Upper East Side. That explains the collection of modern and contemporary art in the listings photos: pieces by Marilyn Minter, and Tim Noble and Sue Webster, among others, are casually placed around the house like it’s no big thing (and if you’re a former Sotheby’s exec, it probably isn’t).

It’s part of the oh-so-creatively named Townhouses of Cobble Hill development, which initially hit the market in 2013, and the house has all of the perks you’d expect (and desire) in a schmancy Brooklyn townhouse. There’s the custom kitchen with Calacatta Gold marble countertops; the custom-built bar, wine room, and bookshelves in the library; the huge master suite with a spa-like, en-suite bathroom; and so on and so forth. It’s all very lovely, if nothing we haven’t seen before—though it is priced for less than some of its renovated or new-build counterparts elsewhere in the borough.
