House of the Day: 12 Garden Place

It’s not often that a minimalist renovation of a 19th century townhouse succeeds, but we think this one does. The 4,000-square-foot single-family home at 12 Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights offers dramatic and well considered spaces as well as cozy nooks, built-ins and original details such as marble fireplaces and gigantic arched doorway moldings.

The house, a mid-19th century Italianate brownstone, is 20 feet wide and 50 deep with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an office and storage rooms. There are six mantels, including two working fireplaces, upgraded mechanicals and central air.

What do you think of it and the ask of $6,250,000?
