Just outside the Cobble Hill Historic District, this charming and historic mid-19th-century brick townhouse is full of classic touches, including wood and stone mantels, moldings and original wide-plank floors. Located at 275 Baltic Street in Cobble Hill, it’s configured as two duplex units, both with two bedrooms and large kitchens.
On the first level of the upper duplex is a serene living room with stunning wood mantel, built-in bookcases, a hand-formed plaster ceiling medallion, and wide plank floors. The living area flows easily into a large rear kitchen with space for dining and an abundance of counter and storage space.
Also on this level is a gracious hall with elegant foliate-detail crown moldings, a powder room and storage. This level leads to a private terrace in back with steps down to the wisteria-laden garden.
Two bedrooms on the top floor feature built-ins and closets for storage. Also on this level are a recently renovated bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a washer and dryer, and a skylight.
The carved wood mantels throughout are likely later additions from the last quarter of the 19th century. A stone mantel in the living room of the lower duplex dates from the mid-19th century and is likely original to the house.
The lower space has an additional room that can be used as a small bedroom, a guest room or a home office.
The exterior of the house is brick, with classic brownstone details and a Greek Revival-style front door painted red and . The front yard contains an ornamental cherry tree that produces beautiful pink blooms in the spring.
The house is close to the border of Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill. Nearby is the F train at the Bergen Street stop.
Close by are popular foodie destinations such as Trader Joe’s, Staubitz Market and Fish Tales. The Cobble Hill Cinemas are right around the corner, as are many boutiques and specialty stores. The always lively restaurants and nightlife of Smith Street are steps away.
Listed by Saul Retig and Ellen Gottlieb of Brooklyn Bridge Realty, the home is asking $3.25 million.
