This two-bedroom parlor and garden duplex at 29 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights has a lot going for it. The kitchen, on the garden level, has a wall of windows that open onto the back yard.

The garden itself is exceptionally deep at 47 feet — according to a floor plan that was published when the home was for sale back in October.


This is definitely not your typical South Slope frame or brick row house. This 25-foot-wide, three-story building at 404 15th Street has a 100-foot-long, 2,500-square-foot open space on the ground floor behind a massive garage door.

Above it are two 1,150-square-foot apartments that are each about 45 feet deep. The lower apartment opens onto a massive 50-foot-long roof deck.
