Stunning…Exquisite…Classic…We’re Running Out of Adjectives for this $16M Brooklyn Heights Townhouse

August 19, 2014

We have never been more thankful for the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words.” And though we may have expressed this sentiment before when bringing you other properties, we are pretty sure our words for this $16,000,000 townhouse at 192 Columbia Heights may fall a wee bit short. Fortunately, we have lots of lovely photos in our gallery to ensure you are properly astonished. We had our pick of beautiful Brooklyn residences to share with you today, but this one called to us. It wasn’t a “Pick me, pick me!” kind of calling, but more of a “Could this home be anymore beautiful?” type of calling. In our humble opinion the answer is “no.”

192 Columbia Heights

Every floor of this rare 25-foot-wide, exquisitely restored mansion is elegant in the truest sense of the word. Built in 1859 and meticulously restored, its original 19th century craftsmanship is seamlessly joined with 21st century updates. The parlor floor has 14-foot ceilings, a sumptuous entry foyer (check out the detail on the stair bannister!), a gracious living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a grand formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling doors leading out to a fantastic deck offering panoramic harbor views.

The large, eat-in chef’s kitchen, while perfectly lovely in its own right, almost loses something in its modern translation given the rest of the residence’s classic feel. However, the operable dumbwaiter to the parlor level is a fun and functional nod to the home’s historic roots.

The enormous master bedroom, one of seven bedrooms in the home, has its own fireplace and a sitting room bigger than many a living room in the city. In fact, when we first saw the photos we actually mistook it for a second living room!

Everywhere you turn in this townhouse you’ll find wonderful architectural details that truly set this Brooklyn Heights home apart — not to mention the library, two offices, and gym on the top floor with more of those sweeping harbor views. What an inspirational way to work out. We think you’ll find that this one-of-a-kind house will inspire you in more ways than one, and even though it rendered us a little tongue tied, we hope you’ll be able to cough up at least three words: “I’ll take it.”
