The last and biggest of the three neo-traditional townhouses at Strong Place and Kane Street has just hit the market and the price will set a record for Cobble Hill if the developer can get it: $7,500,000.
The high price of No. 2 Strong Place may reflect that the property is not just one house, but two: There is an 800-square-foot carriage house in the back with parking on the lower level and a studio apartment with kitchenette above.
All three townhouses are in a landmarked area and were designed by CWB Architects with Landmark’s approval. The exteriors were modeled on the neighborhood’s historic row houses but the interiors are modern. The developer is Brennan Realty, which is also marketing them. The townhouses were briefly on the market pre-construction in early 2013. No. 2A entered contract in January this year when it was asking $4,475,000. No. 4 was listed earlier this month.
The townhouse at No. 2 Strong Place is about 4,000 square feet over five levels. The garden level has the kitchen and dining area that looks out through double height windows onto the garden. The parlor level has two living rooms and a wet bar. The master bath and second bedroom are on the next floor up, and two more bedrooms are above. The top level can be used as a home office or study, according to the listing.
To put the price in perspective, the current Cobble Hill record holder is 305 Degraw Street, the 6,000-square-foot carriage house with a modern renovation and green wall that recently closed for $7,000,000. A double-width Greek Revival mansion at 491 Henry Street sold for $6,750,000 in 2013, and a beautifully renovated and grand Italianate at 233 Warren Street on a double lot with a carriage house went for $6,050,000 in 2012.
