This townhouse-sized and undeniably grand parlor floor duplex at 196 Hicks Street (also known as 34 Pierrepont Street) in historic Brooklyn Heights is one of only three apartments within the “mansion annex” of the 200 Hicks Street cooperative. But unlike most townhouses, the 2,800-square-foot property steps from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade comes with around-the-clock doorman, plus secure storage and a gorgeous roof deck. The apartment does, however, have its own private stoop.

Just up the private stoop entrance is a vast main parlor floor with a windowed foyer.

The foyer opens into a formal dining room. A bright and classic windowed kitchen lies just beyond. The well-upholstered living room boasts floor-to-ceiling townhouse parlor windows.

Parlor floor status means the home has 13-foot ceilings, and well-preserved period details abound. Three exposures mean incredible light. Off a flexible gallery are two of the home’s four bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. There is a laundry room on this floor as well.

A suitably graceful staircase ascends to two more bedrooms–currently used as a master bedroom suite and a library.

This unusual property takes advantage of the historic home it occupies and adds amenities and security on one of Brooklyn’s most beautiful blocks.
