Luxe Heights Carriage House With Radiant-Heated Patio, Glass-Walled Penthouse Asks $10 Million

Here’s a distinctive domicile — a 19th-century Brooklyn Heights carriage house on coveted Grace Court Alley that’s gotten a thorough and modern renovation, presumably with no expense spared, by the architecture firm Baxt Ingui.

A carriage house often means tight spaces, but the renovation bestowed more than 4,700 square feet of living space, plus a private garage.

Brownstoner featured the house when it was up for sale back in 2011, going for $2.7 million; at the time the ground floor was taken up by a four-car garage with an apartment upstairs.

With the parking reduced to a single spot, it’s now a three-bedroom single-family house, and quite a head-turning one.

While the outside retains its historic charm, inside you might not know you were in a Victorian carriage house. There wasn’t a lot of detail to start with, old photos show, and save for a bit of exposed brick or glimpse of a carriage house door, now it’s all smooth surfaces with white walls and new floors.

There’s an open plan living room with a vast skylight and folding glass doors leading to a bluestone patio with a gas-burning fireplace, radiant-heated for off-season use. It connects to an open kitchen with custom oak cabinetry and black granite counters.

The bedrooms are on the second level, and include a master with a walk-in closet, a private deck and an en suite bath with a frameless, glass-enclosed shower.

Above is a glass-walled rooftop penthouse with a service kitchen, which opens onto a spacious roof deck; it’d make a fine office, or could be used as an additional bedroom or guest room.

The basement holds a finished rec room, storage space and a full bathroom.

Bells and whistles include multi-zoned central air, radiant floor heating, and phone/tablet/computer-controlled sound and lighting systems.

By now you’re expecting a whopping price tag, and you will not be let down: $10 million is the ask for the house, which is listed by Brown Harris Stevens broker Brian Lehner. A staggering figure, to be sure, but it may not be off the mark, given the property and the location. What do you think? Like the house?
