Here’s an opportunity to own a piece of history in this beautiful $2.995 million parlor-floor duplex in the mansion that once housed the Brooklyn Women’s Club and the Brooklyn Woman Suffrage Association. This very building at 114 Pierrepont Street was the gathering place of visionaries like Laura Curtis Bullard, Elizabeth Tilton and Ida Sherwood Coffin, who hosted lectures on world politics and peace advocacy as well as events like card games. And the apartment is as grand as its history.
Inside the 36-foot-wide building, this luxurious three-bedroom duplex features high ceilings, oversized windows and gas-burning fireplaces. To one side of the entrance, there’s a large living room with a carved wooden mantle over the fireplace and handcrafted mahogany wainscoting. The large windows have stained-glass accents and overlook a row of trees. The generous dining room has a second fireplace, while the chef’s kitchen features custom-made wooden cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
On the other side of the entrance, there’s a hallway that leads to two bedrooms–one with a fireplace–and a fully-renovated bath. There’s also a walk-in storage room and a washer and dryer.
Up the wide staircase, the exclusive master suite features a wall of closets, and a renovated bathroom.
The George Cornell House is a Romanesque Revival-style mansion built in 1858. The exterior features a turret, gable, and rounded bays. And best of all, its prime Brooklyn Heights location is a short stroll to the promenade, shops, and restaurants.
