Two Manhattan gallerists, one six-story Brooklyn townhouse—you’d think it would be a match made in heaven. But the home’s current owners—his Madison Avenue gallery specializes in Surrealist and Modern art, her company looks out for new talent and helps clients build contemporary art collections—bought the house in 2015 for $4 million, and they’ve just listed it for $6.5M. 124 Congress Street is one of nine units that comprise the Morris Adjmi-designed Cobble Hill Townhouses. Completed in 2014, the development features a mix of restored and newly-constructed homes. With four bedrooms, a private garden and a roof terrace with Manhattan views—but no elevator—the home’s interiors were clearly designed by a pro, but they’re surprisingly low-key given the sellers’ contemporary art milieu.

On the home’s open and spacious parlor floor you’ll find a custom kitchen with all the trimmings including Calacatta Gold marble countertops, custom wood cabinetry and big shiny appliances. Also on this floor is a light-filled formal dining area and a laid-back living room.

One flight up is a second living room, a gas fireplace and a custom bar complete with oak drawers, an antique mirror backsplash and a beverage drawer.

You can duck into the library, grab a book from the room’s built-in shelves and hide for an afternoon.

Fourth floor? That would be three good-sized bedrooms and two full baths, all light-filled and closet-blessed.

If you’ve made it to the top floor, collect your prize: A treetop master suite is a pleasant surprise of city and river views right from your bed, the tub—or from the lovely terrace that’s just outside the bedroom door.

Back down at the garden level you’ll find a playroom/media room, a full bath and an oversized laundry room. Dig even deeper (to the finished cellar) for two more enviable private amenities: a home gym and a wine cellar that accommodates several hundred bottles.
