Grand Brooklyn Heights Greek Revival With Eight Fireplaces Asks $6.799 Million

by

At 25 feet wide, this Greek Revival at 24 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights is quite the grand one-family home, with nearly 4,000 square feet spread over four floors.

It’s been renovated — most floors are new, though some old wide-plank ones remain — but maintains original details including moldings and eight fireplaces. The winding center staircase is new, joists and headers have been reinforced, and there’s central air.

It’s listed as a five-bedroom, but in truth you could wring eight out of it — four quite large, four quite small — if your family were Von Trapp-like in size. As it is, there are four bedrooms on the top floor, all with built-in shelving, while the third floor comprises a massive master suite, with a sitting room, and office and a giant walk-in closet.

The parlor floor has high ceilings, crown moldings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen is in the rear, and not pictured among the many shots — neither are any of the four baths.

There’s an open-plan garden floor that holds a rec room and a second kitchen in the rear (also not pictured).

Listed by Ravi Kantha, Matthew Lesser and Alex Yoel of Leslie J. Garfield, the place is asking $6.799 million. That’s roughly $1,700 a square foot, a not-inconsiderable sum, but it’s a prime house on a prime Heights block. What do you think of it?
