The three-story townhouse on Cranberry Street was built in 1829

Via Brown Harris Stevens

A stately, 189-year-old townhouse on Brooklyn Heights’s Cranberry Street, is now on the market for $7.9 million, making it one of Brooklyn’s most expensive homes for sale right now.

The Classic Greek Revival-style house features a Flemish brick facade, and overlooks the gardens of Plymouth Church, according to the listing. The house is currently set up as an owner’s triplex unit with a rental unit on the garden level, but it can easily be used as a single-family house, as per the brokerbabble.

Thanks to the house having been preserved and maintained over the years, the property has still held on to some historic details including black marble wood-burning fireplaces, feather painted entry and pocket doors, plaster crown moldings, and some original hardware.

The formal living room, dining room, and kitchen take up the parlor level, two equally proportioned bedrooms are located on the floor above that, and three additional bedrooms are located on the top floor. If you include the bedroom from the garden apartment there’s a sixth bedroom in the townhouse as well. In addition to all the comforts of the house, there’s also a landscaped garden in the back. For all of that, this place is asking $7.9 million.
