If townhouses were students, this Cobble Hill home would definitely be the teacher’s pet. Unlike most townhouses anywhere in New York City, it has a 25-foot wide adjacent lot that’s used as gated parking, as well as 3,500 square feet of outdoor space that looks like it could be right out of a Napa Valley vineyard. The $12,750,000 house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment, though it could easily be transformed into a grand, single-family residence.

The house at 193-195 Congress Street was built in the Italianate style in 1872. Today, it sits on 50 feet of frontage on a double lot in prime Cobble Hill, between Clinton and Court Streets. The double lot allowed for gated, private parking, which can comfortably fit two cars.

Enter the owner’s triplex on the parlor level, where you’ll find a wood-burning fireplace with marble surround, 12-foot ceilings with restored moldings, floor to ceiling south-facing windows, and original pocket doors that have been restored.

The dining room, which features another marble mantle, is open to the kitchen. Through floor-to-ceiling French doors, enter onto the large rear deck.

Down the stairs from the deck is a 40-foot landscaped garden.

But thanks again to the double lot, there’s an entire other outdoor space through the arched brick doorway. Here, you’ll enjoy a huge entertaining space complete with a dining area, grill, seating area, and ping pong table. The entire space is set inside rustic brick walls, and in the rear, there’s a romantic pergola draped with twinkly lights.

Back inside, the primary bedroom is at the rear of the third floor. It has two large walk-in closets and is adjacent to a full bathroom with a steam shower, whirlpool bath, and large vanity.

At the front of the third floor, one of the bedrooms has been turned into a library with yet another wood-burning fireplace and beautiful built-in shelves. Also on this level what’s labeled on the den/office is currently set up as a nursery.

There are two more large bedrooms with fireplaces and walk-in closets on the fourth floor, as well as a smaller bedroom, full bathroom, and laundry room.

Though not pictured, the garden-level apartment has a large living room with a fireplace, galley kitchen, full bathroom with washer/dryer, one large bedroom, and a small bedroom or office. And another bonus–the cellar holds two fully outfitted wine cellars.
