Located in the heart of historic Prospect Heights, 275 Park Place is the kind of four-story, two-family brownstone designers’ dreams are made of. Consisting of an upper triplex and a garden-level one-bedroom apartment, the pristine late-19th-century home is beyond turn-key. With a renovation–it was featured in New York magazine–helmed by noted architect Elizabeth Roberts, every bit of infrastructure was replaced, while retaining its stunning original details. Asking $4,500,000, the property also boasts the unique extra-long lot only found in a few Brooklyn neighborhoods, giving it a 90-foot back garden with two terraces above.

This week, the Brooklyn Public Library revealed the first phase of a major remodel of its Central Library on Grand Army Plaza. Designed by renowned architect Toshiko Mori, the undertaking was the single largest renovation and restoration in the Central Library’s 80-year history. The modern, light-filled rooms now provide more accessible space for the public, which includes civic commons for community engagement (providing city and passport services), a “new and noteworthy” book gallery, and an enlarged and modernized business and career center.

This townhouse clad in zinc and Brazilian Ipe definitely doesn’t look like the rest in Prospect Heights, and that may be its biggest selling point. The modernist single-family home is like a secret hideaway in the middle of Brooklyn–enter through the gate on Underhill Avenue and find yourself in a landscaped corridor/front yard complete with bamboo, native grasses, and hydrangeas. Pair it with the sleek contemporary interiors, and this home earns its $1,750,000 price tag.
