Built in 1825, this stunning Brooklyn Heights townhouse boasts six bedrooms, two kitchens, three full bathrooms, an office, and a laundry room. Both the living and dining rooms on the parlor floor (the parlor floor!) have wood-burning fireplaces, and details such as the period moldings, the claw-foot bathtub in the master bathroom, and a restored mahogany staircase hark back to an earlier era.
The huge master bedroom has windows the width of the house with Manhattan-facing views. Guests or family members can enjoy their own private apartment on the garden level, complete with a separate kitchen, bathroom, and family room. With so many bedrooms to spare, one has been converted to a third-floor media room. The parlor floor deck overlooks a fully landscaped garden, with a terrace, pond, patio, and a cherry tree that blossoms in the spring.
The house is located in historic Brooklyn Heights, one block from the Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Nearby transportation options include the 2/3 and A/C subway lines, as well as the Water Taxi at Pier One. Click through for more pictures.

The Warren Place Mews is one of the loveliest blocks in Cobble Hill, with historic cottage homes built around a lush garden courtyard. It’s pretty rare to see a property on the market here, which is why the listing for 141 Baltic Street is exciting indeed. This isn’t one of the smaller cottages — it’s actually a larger brick townhouse that’s four stories tall with 1,600 square feet. The rear of the house provides access to the Mews. Ultimately it seems like you’re getting the best of both worlds: a spacious, historic townhouse alongside the quaint, private community of the Warren Place Mews.
The landmarked, brick home was constructed in 1878 but it’s going to need a modern upgrade. This is an estate sale, with potential buyers urged to bring their architects along. While you’d be working from scratch, it’s the ideal property for a buyer who envisions modern, top-of-the-line finishes within a historic Cobble Hill home. This has tons of potential to be a very special project indeed. The asking price comes in at $2,250,000, and the property is available to look at by appointment only.
It doesn’t get any more quaint than this Clinton Hill carriage house, located right near Pratt at 244 Hall Street. The building, constructed in 1855, underwent a head-to-toe interior renovation back in 2009. The result is a well-designed single-family that still retains much of its historic charm. The renovation brought custom window treatments, Bosch appliances, central air and heating, and radiant heated floors in the kitchen, dining, living and bathrooms. There’s also a heated garage with a private entrance (that could also be used as a studio space), as well as a gorgeous two-tiered garden. Give us some sun and we’d be out on that terrace with the fire pit every day.
Overall you’ve got three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms over two floors. While 244 Hall is smaller than your typical townhouse, the design looks like it has completely maximized the space available. The asking price comes in at $2,315,000.
A freestanding home on a quarter acre of land in Brooklyn? It may sound unlikely, but that’s what’s up for sale at 690 East 18th Street in Ditmas Park. This gorgeous Victorian home, located in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District, has it all: well-kept historical details, inlaid hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen, and tons of space. There are seven — seven! — total bedrooms over three floors and 2,900 square feet, as well as a private driveway with a single-car garage. As if that weren’t enough, the property comes with an adjoining 50-by-100-foot garden lot big enough to accommodate a pool or large garden.
Other features like the dark wood detailing, pocket doors, stained glass, front porch and the sitting room are pretty much icing on the cake. Overall, just a lovely property. The asking price comes in at $2,275,000.
These days, Atlantic Avenue is chock-a-block with high-end boutiques, cute restaurants, and enough antique stores to furnish Versailles. This newly renovated Boerum Hill studio apartment is right where the action is, blocks away from the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Barclays Center, and easy walking distance from the restaurants, bars, and shopping of Cobble Hill, Park Slope, and Fort Greene. It’s a great location for commuters, too — two blocks away from the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, a hub for 2, 3, 4, 5, N, R, B, D, and Q subways as well as the LIRR.
Front-facing windows fill the apartment with light. Features include a newly renovated kitchen with quartz counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a dishwasher; a brand-new washer/dryer; a sleeping area with a walk-in closet; hardwood floors and bike storage. The asking price is $559,000.
A spacious condo in the heart of brownstone Brooklyn, Unit #3C at 52 Dean Street offers two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two outdoor spaces, and 1,300 square feet. There’s a lovely open kitchen and living room with high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The open layout allows enough space for a dining room set, children’s play area, or office.
Large glass doors in the living room lead to a private terrace. The kitchen includes an island with a breakfast bar, granite countertops, and oak cabinetry. The master bedroom is fully outfitted with a private balcony and en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The condo comes with a washer/dryer unit, as well as individual storage in the basement.
The asking price of $1,545,000 accounts for the condo’s location. Straddling the border of Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill, the building is situated a block away from the restaurants, bars, and shopping of Court and Smith streets and a few blocks away from Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn… Close to all yet tucked away on a quieter side street — making it both an attractive and convenient location to live.
The one thing that sticks out about 226 Pacific Street, a four-story townhouse up for sale in Cobble Hill, is its potential. Currently coming in at 3,760 square feet, zoning allows for up to approximately 6,000 buildable square feet. This means that the current single-family configuration could be expanded into a massive single-family home, or two spacious duplex apartments. It seems like an ideal investment for buyers looking for a historic property that offers room to renovate and modernize.
The listing helps you imagine this home’s potential, with renderings from Baxt Ingui Architects. The design includes five stories, six bedrooms, a lush rooftop garden and an indoor pool to boot. (There’s even room for an elevator.) The house’s proximity to all the shopping, bars, and restaurants along Court Street, Smith Street and Atlantic Avenue is a major selling point as well. The asking price is $4,200,000, with the sellers asking for cash-only buyers.
