It’s homes like these that make us appreciate the diverse architecture of New York. A glance at these photos would have you think you’re looking at an idyllic countryside setting, but don’t get out your riding boots just yet. You’re in Cobble Hill. That’s right, this Brooklyn townhouse has all the old-style charm you could dream of in a modern package with a convenient location, and it’s asking $3.995 million.

Inside the Federal-style brick home there’s a mixture of restored original details like wide-plank pine floors, exposed joists, tin ceilings, plaster moldings and two wood-burning fireplaces with hand-carved marble mantles (along with several other decorative fireplaces) with modern upgrades like all new landmark-approved wood windows and central air. The five-bedroom triplex currently has an additional garden apartment, although it can easily be converted to one giant residence.

The custom chef’s kitchen has high-end appliances, handcrafted wood cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops and a hand-cut subway tile backsplash. The bathrooms are also an elegant nod to the days of yore with claw foot tubs, handmade ceramic tiles, wood wainscoting, and exposed brick.

A partial rear extension allows for an additional bathroom on the garden level and a glass-enclosed breakfast room on the parlor floor. Dine while overlooking the landscaped garden with twig pergola. Then, when it’s time for sleep, a skylight awaits the lucky recipient of the bedroom on the back of the fourth floor.

13 Dean Street was built in the 1850s and is just a stone’s throw away from the dining and shops on Court and Smith Streets with transportation nearby.
