Greek Revival-Italianate in Cobble Hill With Wide-Plank Floors, Scullery Asks $4.795 Million

by

Here’s a four-story brick townhouse in the Cobble Hill Historic District that has a number of unique original details, including a show-stopping parlor. Located at 181 Degraw Street, the home dates back to the early 1850s and is currently configured as a triplex over a garden rental.

Transitional Greek Revival-Italianate in style, the home has a remarkable parlor level, but the rest is a bit lacking in the aforementioned details. Given the hefty price tag, the home would be ideal for someone dead set on the prime location.

The front parlor boasts two floor-to-ceiling windows sandwiching a pier mirror, wide plank wood floors, pierced plasterwork crown moldings, and a decorative marble mantel. The plank floors continue into the dining room (and up to the bedrooms as well) as does the pierced plasterwork.

A Corinthian columned opening leads to what was once the rear parlor and is now the kitchen. It boasts a granite counter, fridge, cabinets and stove, while an adjacent scullery contains a second sink, more cabinets and access to the back deck. Stairs lead down to the landscaped backyard, which has a bluestone tiled patio and bamboo fencing.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a walk-in closet and en suite bath that is also accessible from the hall. A second bedroom on this floor connects to another small room that could be used as a dressing room, closet or office. On the top floor, both bedrooms have walk-in closets and there’s another small side room.

The garden level has a private under-stoop entrance, separate kitchen and one bedroom.

Halstead’s Rodney Ripps has the listing, which is asking $4.795 million. Do you think they’ll get ask?
