This historic Brooklyn townhouse at 219 Kane Street, mansion-priced at $11,000,000, is a manageable two-unit property with notable advantages. The renovated 1850s Greek Revival home has been thoroughly upgraded, with a carefully considered design highlighting well-preserved Italianate details. Located within the Cobble Hill Historic District, the townhouse is 22 feet wide with a two-story rear extension, a garage, and several outdoor spaces.

Though currently set up as a single-family dwelling, the home’s garden level is ready to be used as a separate apartment for rental income or guest accommodations. A lengthy renovation resulted in up-to-the-minute infrastructure, including zoned central heating and air-conditioning, smart home technology, radiant floor heat, and a gas fireplace (in addition to two wood-burning fireplaces).

The parlor floor is a light-filled open space that flows from the formal living room to a large dining area and a beautifully designed kitchen in the rear extension. Off the kitchen, a dining deck leads to the bluestone patio and garden below.

On the second floor, a primary suite is wrapped in moody midnight blue. This elegant chamber includes a bedroom-sized dressing room, a luxurious bath, and a laundry room. There’s also a private bedroom terrace overlooking the garden.

The third floor offers three bedrooms and a bathroom. All are blessed with flourishes of dreamy interior design.

The garden floor holds a beautifully designed, self-contained living space. Rooms include a bedroom/office with a built-in Murphy bed, a galley kitchen, a charming library with built-ins, and a family room that opens onto the landscaped Brooklyn garden and patio.

Above is a new roof, and a dry cellar with plenty of storage awaits below. To one side is an unobtrusive–but undeniably enviable–ivy-covered garage.
