A beautiful Beaux Arts house in Cobble Hill’s Historic District that comes with its own private roof deck is now on the market for $5.4 million.

The three-story house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a study, a private roof deck, and a large living room that extends through most of the parlor floor. Its interiors boast several charming, rustic details including custom iron railings in its staircase, hand-hewn beams, a wood-burning fireplace, a custom fumed oak island in its kitchen, and wide antique pine floors.

The house, along with two neighboring ones, was converted to a townhome around 2012. According to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1969 designation report, the original structure dubbed Dudley Memorial—built in 1902 by architect William C. Hough—was constructed as a student nurses home for the Long Island College Hospital. The structure is described in the report as a “richly adorned red brick building with stone and terra cotta trim” similar to “a small French Renaissance palace.”

The rooftop, “perfect for entertaining, BBQ, planting, and relaxing atop your one-of-a-kind castle!” the listing says, offers views of the city’s harbor.

It’s located at 355 Henry Street, between Amity and Congress streets, near Cobble Hill Park and a walkable distance to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s piers. The closest trains are the F and G at Bergen Street. There’s also a Trader Joe’s nearby and several notable restaurants including La Vara, Libertador, and Colonie.

Taxes for the property are $2,134/month. Kim Soule, Jessica Henson, and Lucy Perry of Compass have the listing.
