Pre-Civil War Greek Revival/Italianate With Four Mantels Near Promenade Asks $4.35 Million


Here’s a landmarked Greek Revival/Italianate home that’s part of “Bride’s Row” in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. Built in 1853, this single-family four-story boasts four mantels and an ornately decorated top floor skylight.

The entire home, which is 30 feet deep, appears to be in move-in condition. The brick facade with brownstone details was recently restored, according to the listing, and two of the four fireplaces are working (they are gas).

Period details include crown moldings, Greek Revival “ear” moldings, and a bracketed arched divide between the two parlors. The three mantels shown are white marble, including one with a carved leaf design.

The floor plan is traditional, with a kitchen and dining room on the garden floor and two parlors above. Floor-to-ceiling windows bookend the parlor floor, whose ceilings are quite lofty at 12 feet high.

The eat-in kitchen is large and renovated, with an island and window seating that looks out on a stone-paved patio.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, and another bedroom has been converted into a library with built-in shelves. None of the four bathrooms are pictured, but according to the floor plan, two are half baths.

Located near the Promenade, the house is three blocks from the Clark Street 2, 3 station and about four blocks from the A, C at High Street-Brooklyn Bridge.

The townhouse last sold in 2005 for $2.5 million; now it’s asking $4.35 million. Jill Seligson Braver of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing. Like it?
