On a tree-lined block in historic Brooklyn Heights, this co-op at 123 Pierrepont Street, asking $1,595,000, is tucked within a landmarked circa 1848 townhouse. Although thoroughly renovated, the two-bedroom home offers the kind of light-filled prewar charm often found in this sought-after neighborhood. Gracious proportions, hardwood floors, and high ceilings are a backdrop for details like a wood-burning fireplace and custom shelving. The most pleasant surprise: A terrace just outside the primary bedroom.

The modernist townhouse at 44 Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights is a New York City icon. Designed by renowned architects Joseph and Mary Merz in 1965, it is one of a trio of distinctive townhouses on a secluded historic Brooklyn Heights street known by locals as Willowtown.

Within the 3,036-square-foot house are three bedrooms, a 21st-century kitchen, artfully-designed living, dining and home office spaces, and a private garage. The reimagined home is asking $5,850,000.
