    Brooklyn Heights Italianate Brick Townhouse With Modern Soul, Kicky Bathrooms Asks $6.25 Million

    While the exterior of this 1850s brick row house is as expected for the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the interior reveals playful and irreverent design choices spread across four floors of living space. It’s easy to imagine the setup accommodating a large family, visitors and boisterous bashes, with a sunroom and game room in an extension, a huge mudroom and laundry room, brightly painted woodwork and a 48-inch stove. If it looks familiar, it might be because the art-filled interior was featured in a house tour in Brownstoner magazine last year.
