Light-Filled Greek Revival Townhouse in Brooklyn Heights Finds a Buyer for $6.8M

June 10, 2014

Brooklyn Heights is one of the city’s most coveted neighborhoods, and it’s no wonder why. With its beautiful tree-lined streets, historic architecture, and that certain light which seems to bring a calm and peace to the streets, it’s managed to draw everyone from best-selling authors to bankers to even Hollywood starlets.

The latest and most notable sale for BK nabe is 19 Monroe, which just sold for $6.8 million through a listing held by Yolanda Johnson at Corcoran. The property hit the market back in March for $7.3 million, and while the interiors were admired by many, the ask made more than a few jaw drops. But let’s not forget that this is NYC, and it never hurts to be overly ambitious…

The 5,400-square-foot, 25-foot wide townhouse was originally constructed in 1845 in a Greek Revival style. Though renovated in 2008, the interior updates only hint at modernity and manage to meld well with the home’s historic details, which include pocket doors, an original pier mirror found in the parlor room, marble fireplaces, and the “meticulously restored” facade and ironwork on the exterior.

In addition to its five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the home hosts a top floor TV room and gym with a wet bar. This room also leads out to a terrace with views of the historic Brooklyn Heights district and Manhattan.

But the most transformative addition to the home have to be the skylights and a wall of windows in the kitchen that infuse the room with natural light. The wall of windows also leads out to professionally landscaped garden where the new owners are sure to find respite this summer.
