Showings begin on Sunday, Oct. 20 - By Appt Only OH


This magnificent 25-foot wide home of Italianate style features a high stoop, double doors, unique stained glass, and decorative entry pilasters. Reportedly built circa 1884 from a design by architect Fred Lockwood, the home is approximately 5500 square feet and has been updated and configured as a four-story quadruplex home over a two-bedroom garden rental or guest suite. The upper unit features seven bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, plus a spacious playroom and a top-floor studio or office. There are six fireplaces featuring mahogany, oak and marble or tile, updated electricals, two-zone central air conditioning and a separate gas heating system.
The parlor floor is grand in scale and the ceilings soar to twelve feet, yet it has a light, warm ambiance. In the gracious entry, the newel post sports a striking basket weave design and the transom windows feature unique stained glass designs. This floor’s lovely, original oak with mahogany inlay floors have been preserved. There are stunning plaster details and two fireplaces (one working). It features an expansive living area, separate dining area, large enough to seat a dozen or more, and a powder room. The kitchen has been renovated with a dual-fuel Wolf range, stainless appliances, an informal breakfast bar and a smart pass-through to the spacious dining room. A few steps from the dining area lead up to a rear deck for al fresco dining as well as to the access down to the garden.
The floor above the parlor features a spacious, sun-soaked master bedroom with walk-in closet and windowed ensuite bath. On the rest of the floor are a laundry room, library (also with ensuite bath) with built-in bookshelves for your library and another bedroom.
The third floor features two large bedrooms, one smaller bedroom, a full bath plus a large skylighted playroom or media room. The top floor features an artist’s studio with craft kitchen, a full bath and a large bedroom. On the garden level there is a fantastic, spacious two-bedroom apartment for guests or it could be rented for additional income.
The home is located in the heart of Cobble Hill known for its pastoral quality in close proximity to Downtown Brooklyn and numerous train lines that will take you to the heart of Manhattan.
