This Brooklyn Heights home that has recently reappeared on the market is unlike many of the other historic ones that line the neighborhood’s streets. Aside from its preserved period details, the house on State Street has an incredibly charming attic, an often overlooked feature.

The 7,600-square-foot home, now listed with Leslie J. Garfield, is asking $11.75 million. It has period moldings, a dome stained glass skylight, a winding staircase, arched entryways, and original floors. It also comes with six bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, at least three fireplaces, several terraces, a garden, a roof deck, and a wine cellar.

Most notably, its massive rustic attic, which was completed as part of a recent restoration, has a huge wood-burning fireplace, 12-foot ceilings, exposed brick, two sitting areas with chairs and couches, and built-in wooden bookshelves.

Sitting within the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, at 141 State Street, the home is part of a group of brick and brownstone houses that represent “most of the principal architectural styles of the 19th century,” the Landmarks Preservation Commission said in its designation report.

Ravi Kantha, Matthew Lesser, Gian Mitchell, and Cameron LeCates of Leslie J. Garfield have the listing. Taxes for the property come in at $1,900/month.
