When it listed in 2019 for $18 million, this Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 88 Remsen Street was the borough’s most expensive home. The record has since been shattered, but the townhouse is now trying again for $20 million. The price may be steep, but this property consists of the main house that includes a garden-level rental, as well as a rear carriage house that serves as a rec room, garage, and a second possible rental unit. All the spaces are beautiful in their own unique way and the neighborhood can’t be beaten.

Brooklyn Heights is an expensive neighborhood to be sure, but the five-story townhouse at 88 Remsen Street, asking $18 million, takes the top spot for the entire borough, where the most expensive sale to date was around $15.5 million (h/t Curbed). For that price, you’re certainly getting your money’s worth. The five-story home offers a separate apartment on the ground floor, with an owners’ quadraplex above, complete with decks and harbor views. The historic home has lots of restored original details. But the most unique part of this pricey property is the carriage house that’s included in the sale; across a quiet alley, this quaint structure is thoroughly renovated and includes a garage, a full kitchen, and a skylit recreation room.
