About this Property
Here is your chance to own a piece of history, steps from Washington's last stand at the Battle of Brooklyn. One of the oldest houses in New York, this early 19th Century Federal is unique in many ways. With a 50 foot wide south facing façade and an attached garage, it combines the period charm of classic architecture, with conveniences rarely available in such a quiet urban setting. Beautifully proportioned rooms flank the center hall on all four levels. South facing windows flood the parlor and dining room with light, and full height windows overlook the garden. Both rooms retain their period mantels, and the living room is warmed by a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen is state of the art and features a welcoming bay window and breakfast nook. The large double width garden is easily accessed from the center hall stair. On the upper 2 floors there are five bedrooms plus a study and dressing room. The garden level contains a large den/TV/recreation room an additional guest bedroom, full bath, wine closet, laundry room and mechanical room including 3 zone central AC. From the stoop the river can be glimpsed through the trees, the sky scrapers of lower Manhattan a reminder of how near and yet how far this unique home is from 21st Century New York.
