The Warren Place Mews townhouses, built in 1878 by Alfred Tredway White to provide affordable housing for workers, are some of the most distinctive and coveted properties in all of Brooklyn. This one at 14 Warren Place is extra special because of its optimal layout and rare side staircase.
It also has a number of other points of distinction, including a recent renovation and four working fireplaces.
The iconic and picture-perfect red-brick Gothic exterior overlooks the shared front garden with fountain. The three-story townhouse also has its own private backyard space with a landscaped garden and cobblestone patio.
Inside, the home has a gracious and charming layout with a double parlor over a ground-floor kitchen and dining room. The side staircase leads to two bedrooms and a skylit bathroom on the top floor.
Also charming are the four working fireplaces, providing an attractive focal point for the parlors, dining room and master bedroom.
Closet space and built-ins are ample, with four closets on the bedroom floor and a large closet and pantry in the kitchen. The house also has central air, a washer/dryer, and new windows. The brick facade was recently repointed and the electrical and plumbing have been updated.
The kitchen has granite counters, stainless-steel Viking appliances, and Shaker-style cabinets.
A southwestern exposure and skylight over the staircase brighten the house.
Located in Cobble Hill, the Warren Place Mews is close to public tennis courts, Brooklyn Bridge Park, ferry service to Manhattan and other locations at Pier 6, the F train at the Bergen Street stop, restaurants, boutiques and both private and public schools.
If you would like to see the property in person, there will be an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
Listed by Ellen Gottlieb of Brooklyn Bridge Realty, the home is asking $2.05 million.
