The two-year renovation of this four-story row house in Cobble Hill for a family of six touched every system and surface.
This Cobble Hill brownstone was transformed from a crummy four-unit apartment building into a warm and spacious single-family home with a kitchen chefs can only dream about.
This classic 1850s brick row house — one of five identical structures on a North Heights block — was quite a gem even before its extensive renovation.
In the hands of the same family for 70 years, until it was bought by a couple of British ex-pats in the art business, it had suffered decades of benign neglect.
Beyond that, “it hadn’t been touched, it hadn’t been chopped up, and the details, although needing a lot of work, were somewhat intact,” said Brooklyn Heights–based architect Lorraine Bonaventura, who was hired to make the house sparkle again.
