This top-floor condominium in Brooklyn’s Columbia Street Waterfront district has the space–2,300 square feet of it–and the views to feel more beachfront than brownstone. The neighborhood has a history of its own, and though the building at 53 Summit Street may be new, 10-foot ceilings and steel-framed windows look right at home in the formerly industrial neighborhood. Asking $2.195 million, this lofty duplex offers three or four bedrooms to configure as you wish and two custom decks for summertime lounging.

Sales began this week at 5 River Park, the first new tower to rise in the River Park project, the seven-building masterplan redevelopment of the former Long Island College Hospital Site. The new building, whose address is 347 Henry Street, is the first to hit the market in phase two of a masterplan comprised of the project’s first three new towers, which in turn are part of Fortis Property Group‘s $240 million plan to transform the Cobble Hill facility into market-rate condos and a clinic.

Actor Daniel Craig is the latest of the Hollywood brigade to land in Brooklyn, according to the New York Post. The 21st century James Bond and wife Rachel Weisz have reportedly scooped up the Cobble Hill townhouse at 22 Strong Place formerly owned by author Martin Amis. The home was damaged in a fire in 2016; Amis and wife Isabel Fonseca, who’ve moved to a Downtown Brooklyn apartment, offered the property complete with intact (despite the blaze) recent renovations and landmarks-approved plans for repairs as per the listing.
On a quintessential tree-lined Cobble Hill block just to the east of the Columbia Street Waterfront, the equally quintessential historic townhouse at 388 Henry Street is seeking a new owner for only the third time in 100 years. Asking $3.7 million, the four-story, two-family home is filled with period details, with plenty of room for new ones.
This is one of the select few carriage homes that line the charming Cobble Hill Park, and now it’s up for grabs asking $4.4 million. What you’re getting is a house full of history: constructed in the 1840s through 1860, the carriage houses on this block served as homes for both the servants and horses of the wealthy homeowners along nearby Warren and Clinton streets. 20 Verandah, in particular, later served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Of course, the interior is lovely too, with original details like bricks, ceiling beams and wood-burning fireplaces maintained within the four-bedroom, two-family home.
Most Cobble Hill residents are familiar with the Cobble Hill Towers, distinctive red brick buildings—nine six-story walk-ups in all—built in 1879 by the philanthropist Alfred Tredway White. The buildings were converted to condos in 2010, and what was formerly envisioned as worker’s tenements is now hot Brooklyn real estate. This particular one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment has been thoroughly renovated, with some custom touches from the dining table to the closet doors. The apartment sold three years ago for $416,120, and has just hit the market asking $675,000.
