One of the most charming homes in Brooklyn Heights, a 189-year-old Federal-style townhouse in the heart of the neighborhood, could be yours, provided you have around $6 million to spare.

The home, located at 135 Joralemon Street, is part of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, and is situated on a block where homes of its type—clapboard, with a porch and deep front yard—aren’t exactly the norm. And plenty of this house’s historic details remain, both inside and out: There are several wood-burning fireplaces, iron latticework on the facade, and beamed ceilings in the rooms at the garden level.

But a fire tore through the home in 2004, which means that over the years, the interior has been renovated up to modern standards. The most recent renovation, which happened in the past couple of years, added a new HVAC system to the house; it also has modern appliances (both in the kitchen and a washer/dryer), several walk-in closets, and more.

The house at 135 Joralemon Street has five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, and there’s a spacious backyard and a small porch on the back of the house. It’s listed with Caleb Hartzler of Stribling for $5.995 million.
