This 7,040 square foot townhouse at 37 Sidney Place in the postcard-pretty Brooklyn Heights Historic District spans six stories of living space–all accessed by a bronze-mirrored elevator. From the gym and sauna in the basement to the top-floor treehouse room, there are six bedrooms, nine baths, a landscaped garden, and two terraces. Asking $14,950,000, the Greek Revival-style home was built in 1846. A complete renovation by Baxt Ingui Architects has added every modern luxury and a sustainable future: The house is under review for passive house certification.

Assuming the condo at Brooklyn Heights’ Quay Tower closes for its $10,650,000 asking price, it’ll become Brooklyn’s priciest condo sale of the year. This is not the first record-setter for the luxury waterfront tower. In April 2020, a penthouse closed for $20,301,000, making it the borough’s most expensive residential sale ever at the time. (It was outdone by a $25.5 million Brooklyn Heights townhouse sale in January of this year, but it’s still the borough’s biggest condo sale.) The latest sale is for a 4,544-square-foot, four-bedroom unit with amazing skyline and harbor views.

When it listed in 2019 for $18 million, this Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 88 Remsen Street was the borough’s most expensive home. The record has since been shattered, but the townhouse is now trying again for $20 million. The price may be steep, but this property consists of the main house that includes a garden-level rental, as well as a rear carriage house that serves as a rec room, garage, and a second possible rental unit. All the spaces are beautiful in their own unique way and the neighborhood can’t be beaten.

Designed by prolific architect Emery Roth, Brooklyn Height’s St. George Tower was constructed in 1929 as part of the full-block St. George Hotel complex. The 30-story Art Deco tower at 111 Hicks Street was converted to 275 co-ops in 1984, leaving its east-facing apartments with views just as prolific. This three-bedroom duplex on the 22nd and 23rd floors has a 57-foot-long terrace that overlooks the entire Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Verrazano bridges–views that are completely protected and enjoyed by every single room in the home.
