Here’s a stately and comfortable brownstone in move-in condition, in prime Brooklyn Heights. It’s at 161 Hicks Street, near the Promenade and the 2/3 trains at Clark Street.
It’s got all the details and trimmings you might want from a brownstone as well as modern comforts such as zoned central air.
It’s narrow-ish at 16.5 feet wide, and the four-story house is set up as a one-family. There are two floors of living space and two floors of bedrooms above.
The kitchen — an attractive one with a Viking range, marble counters and a butcher-block-topped island — is at the rear of the garden level, with French doors leading to a garden with a stone patio.
There’s a dining room on that level and a double parlor above, with a pair of working marble fireplaces, pocket doors, tall bookcases and original window shutters.
There are five bedrooms, including a master with a large walk-in closet and yet another wood-burning fireplace. There’s a single full bath on each of the upper floors (the pictured one, with its green glass tiles, is quite fetching), and a laundry room on the top floor.
There’s two-zone central air conditioning. No further detail on the state of the mechanicals or any recent updates, but it looks to have been cared for.
Listed by Jill Seligson Braver of Brown Harris Stevens, the brownstone is asking $5.25 million. Seem ambitious, or roughly on target? Like the house?
