A restored carriage house of a former Brooklyn police station is asking $5,950,000. Located at 72 Poplar Street, the townhouse sits within the landmarked former Brooklyn Heights precinct building, which was converted into a boutique condominium in 2014. Constructed in 1912 in the Italian Renaissance Revival style, the carriage house now serves as a three-bedroom single-family home with renovations by The Brooklyn Home Company. The property boasts three terraces, a huge roof deck, a garage, Lower Manhattan views, and all of the perks that come with luxury condo living.

The three-story home can be entered through a private courtyard or private garage. On the first floor, a foyer and gallery lead to the large open-concept kitchen and living area.

The Brooklyn Home Company (TBHC) interior designer Holly Waterfield curated the interiors of the home with several custom pieces, including built-in shelving for the office and a wood coffee table in the living room.

Jose Blanco, who works with TBHC and runs Little Tribe Studio, designed the table found in the dining room. On this level, you’ll be able to access the spacious walled patio.

Up one floor are the bedrooms, including the main suite, which has a dressing room, walk-in closet, and doors that open out onto the south-facing landscaped terrace. On the other end of this level is the north terrace, which is located above the garage and overlooks Poplar Street.

At the top of the home, a rooftop terrace stretches the entire length of the home and has views of the surrounding Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline.

The old police precinct was built in 1912 by architects Beverly King and Harry Walker and converted into a 14-unit condo building in 2014. Developed by the Daten Group, which picked up the property in 2011 for $7.5 million, the building offers amenities like a virtual doorman, residents lounge, fitness center, and package room.
