When we first saw photos of this four-story home located at 416 Pacific Street in historic Boerum Hill what came to mind was beautifully planned opulence. On the market for a whisper under $5 million, every room is full of rich fabrics and textiles with no detail left to chance. Less than two years ago it was sold as a two-family residence for a little over $3.3 million, but the current owner masterfully transformed it into a magnificent single-family home, and though it is easily convertible back to its previous form, we can’t imagine giving up a single piece of the square-footage.

The Hardest Part About Living in this Perfect Brooklyn Heights Loft is Spelling the Name of Your Street, Thu, October 16, 2014
A village in the Dutch province of North Holland. The name of one of President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Commissioners responsible for removing the Cherokee and Chickasaw Indians beyond the Mississippi River (later known as the Trail of Tears). And the street where you will find this impeccable corner loft in Brooklyn Heights.
Michelle Williams’s gorgeous ivy-covered Boerum Hill townhouse just hit the market. And it comes with a three-car garage.
The listing calls it “the one and only,” and for someone looking for a huge single-family home in this coveted South Brooklyn neighborhood, it just might be–assuming they can cover the steep asking price. First, the size factor: The corner townhouse is 22 feet wide, offering four stories, four and a half baths, at least six bedrooms, 12-foot-ceilings and a three-car garage that currently includes a rec room.
