177 Pacific Street, Brooklyn carriage house, most expensive home sale in Brooklyn

You know the real estate market is getting shaken up when Brooklynites are abandoning their beloved borough for the cheaper island of Manhattan. And today’s record breaker just goes to show how hot Brooklyn is right now. The Daily News reports that the super-modernized Cobble Hill carriage house at 177 Pacific Street sold for $15.5 million, setting the record for most expensive home sale ever in the borough. The four-story, six-bedroom house takes the top spot from Truman Capote’s former home at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, which sold in 2012 for $12.5 million.

21 Warren Place, Warren Place Mews, Cobble Hill

The Warren Place Mews is one of the most charming blocks of Cobble Hill, if not all of Brooklyn. It’s a gated street with 34 modest brick cottages that face a private courtyard. The mews dates back to the 1870s, when it was built by wealthy merchant and philanthropist Alfred Tredway White. White advocated for housing for the working class and built affordable housing all around Brooklyn. These homes in particular were used as workman’s cottages. But the mews has come a long way since then. This home, at 21 Warren Place, is now on the market for $1.495 million.

Modern Smart Home in Cobble Hill Sells for $6M

325 Degraw Street, smart home, The Light House Cobble Hill

The blogosphere was not impressed last year when they saw the contemporary brownstone conversion at 325 Degraw Street in Cobble Hill, calling the grey structure a “sad transformation.” And while the nondescript façade may pale in comparison to its neighboring historic homes, what lies beyond is an impressive 5,800-square-foot smart home, complete with over 800 square feet of outdoor space, a landscaped roof deck, and a basement media room. Known as the Light House, the modern mansion designed by architect James Anzalone has now found an owner, a couple who paid a hefty $6 million, according to city records released today.

241 Sacket Street, landscaped garden with playhouse, renovated townhouse with green bathroom

What if we told you we found a beautiful move-in ready Brooklyn townhouse with a landscaped garden and a great location, and the only downside is it has one green bathroom? Well, you can’t have it all. But this four-bedroom townhouse in Cobble Hill comes pretty close. The owner “lovingly updated” the home, and it seems to have had a pretty successful run on the rental market over the last few years, but it’s back on the market again, asking $12,500 a month.

It’s not a shocker that some Brooklyn neighborhoods are outselling their Manhattan counterparts. What’s a bit of a surprise is that the Columbia Street Waterfront District, a quirky 22-block enclave wedged between Red Hook and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, is one of them.

Until recently, Columbia Street was known as a far-flung and largely forgotten strip that fell victim to Robert Moses’s highway expansion project—the BQE—which, when built on a below-ground slice of Hicks Street in 1957, severed the area from the rest of Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill, breaking up what was then “South Brooklyn” into distinct neighborhoods.

Brooklyn Courtyard House, DXA Studio, Cobble Hill

It’s not often that a New York City architect gets to work with an extra-wide townhouse, but the Brooklyn Courtyard House afforded DXA Studio just that opportunity.

The client had purchased a standard 17-foot-wide townhouse in Cobble Hill, as well as the adjacent vacant lot, giving DXA over 30 feet of developable space. The firm used this chance to create a 5,600-square-foot, three-story home that blends with its Italianate neighbors from the outside and is entirely arranged around a central courtyard inside.
