Even in the lavish Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the three-story Greek Revival brick home at 45 Willow Place stands out for its colossal portico – namely, the wooden columns which grace its exterior. A single-family townhouse, the property has surprisingly few original details inside despite its unique historic exterior. It was built by John Bayard in 1847 and is part of a strip of homes known as Colonnade Row.

The only visible period notes left within the interior are a pair of French doors, a full wall of built-in bookcases, some exposed brick, and one gas and one wood-burning fireplace. The stair has been updated to be modern and open with red rails.
