Another Massive Sale for Brooklyn Heights


It has been one hot summer in Brooklyn Heights. First 281 Henry sells for $5 million, then 29 Grace Court goes for $5.25 mil, and 40 Willow Place just hit public records for $7.35 million. 40 Willow Place is a 45-foot-wide modernist home built in the 1960s. Throughout the years some details of the home were lost, but later owners restored the interior to its original glory in a top-to-bottom renovation. Last year, it was asking $7,500,000. Then Curbed noticed it was relisted this April for the same price. You can still see the Corcoran listing… what an amazing place. Looks like the owners are moving across the river from Manhattan. The Observer has a story on it too.

  • This is an awesome home and property. Looked at it with a friend of mine who passed on it but it was one of the best properties I have ever seen in Brooklyn. Wow.

  • I was excited to look at the interior reading it had been restored but was so disappointed they installed such a generically contemporary kitchen and bathroom that could be found in any new-built condo. The architect could have made the kitchen and bath look authentically period to a 60′s modern house. Historic restoration isn’t only for 100+ year old houses.

  • No one except house museums attempts to recreate period kitchens in their brownstones. Besides, a Civil war era New York brownstone kitchen consisted of a large table, a fireplace, and four Irish women.
