This move-in ready four-story Brooklyn Heights townhouse has an offbeat configuration and an interesting pedigree. At 45 State Street, it once had dual storefronts and a pair of adjoining stables on the ground floor, with residences above.
It’s now a single-family three-bedroom house, with one former stable holding a one-car garage with an entrance into the living space and the other housing the kitchen.
There’s a bit of suburban blandness to the renovated interior, but it’s in top condition and well appointed. There’s a full-floor master suite with a walk-in closet, and a master bath with double sinks, radiant heated floor and a separate tub and shower. There’s a ground-floor media room with a wall of shelves and cabinets and a kitchen with white Shaker cabinetry, a panel-doored fridge and granite countertops.
There are a pair of terraces flanking the second floor, a large open space that holds the living and dining rooms, the latter of which is connected to the kitchen via a dumbwaiter. That space gets a lot of light, as does the house in general, with its four exposures.
The upstairs bedrooms both have en suite baths and decent closet space. There’s central air and a house-wide sound system. And don’t forget the private parking, the object of many a car-owning Brooklynite’s fevered dreams.
The house last changed hands in 2009, when it sold for just over $3 million; a few years later it was listed as an $18,000-a-month rental. Listed by Charles Homes and Douglas Kampsen of Halstead, it’s now asking $5.975 million. What’s your take on it?
