The 25-foot-wide six-family townhouse at 118 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights has the classic good looks that define the neighborhood’s covetable brownstones, complete with restored original interior details dating from 1900. Asking $8,599,000, the 10,200-square-foot property represents an opportunity for both living and earning–or creating a new space altogether. The house currently offers an owner’s triplex and five separate market-rate one-bedroom apartments. Options include creating a single-family mansion or condominiums, or skipping the renovation effort and enjoying the home as-is, with income-producing units and a spacious residence.

The owner’s triplex spans the building’s parlor, garden and cellar levels. The showpiece of this three-story living space is an elegant parlor-level great room.

On the garden level is a second living room. Beyond is a light-filled, modernized farmhouse kitchen featuring appliances by Wolf and SubZero. A massive island anchors the kitchen, offering seating and prep space topped with marble. An adjacent separate dining room opens onto a private patio.

Three large bedrooms are framed by 13-foot ceilings and tall windows. The owners’ space features three baths and a powder room; an additional home office adds even more options. In the cellar, you’ll find a 500-bottle wine cellar, a media center, an exercise area, laundry facilities and storage.

In addition to the owner’s residence, five one-bedroom apartments are in updated condition and currently asking market rents. Behind the classic brownstone stoop and facade, in one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods, the home has ten potential bedrooms, with at least as many possibilities.
