115 Willow Street, $2.35 million (L); 108 Pierrepont Street, $575,000 (R)

This freshly-listed, charming bi-level bolt-hole in prime Brooklyn Heights at 108 Pierrepont Street may be petite, but it’s tucked into the same elegant neighborhood as the house-like duplex at 115 Willow Street, also new to the market, that’s going for $2.35 million. Also in a beautiful, well-kept historic prewar building, with the same access to the Promenade, park and neighborhood highlights, the former rings in at a far-lower $575,000.

The larger of these two neighbors, 115 Willow Street (#4B) definitely “feels like a house,” with a large living room offering a wall of west-facing windows, a formal dining room, and a welcoming eat-in kitchen with granite countertops.

An oak stairway leads to the second floor where you’ll find a spacious master bedroom and a full en-suite bath, two more bedrooms and two more baths, along with plenty of closets and storage. Great light and Manhattan skyline views complete the picture, and the elegant prewar building is exactly what comes to mind when we think of the Heights.

THE COMPETITION…

Our smaller neighbor, 108 Pierrepont (#9) is a better fit for a single resident or couple rather than a family of four, but, in addition to being in the same historic neighborhood, it captures the same classic prewar charm as well as modern livability. Similar oversized windows frame treetop views of lovely Pierrepont Street and Monroe Place.

On the first level of this top-floor retreat is a wood-burning fireplace, a newly-renovated but equally warm kitchen with stainless appliances, Silestone countertops, modern wood cabinetry, and a butcher-block center island. The bath has been freshly updated with subway tile and a pedestal sink.

Up a spiral staircase, an open mezzanine bedroom is bright from a skylight and offers plenty of closet space, and there’s laundry and more storage in the basement.

The diminutive duplex is situated in a 36-foot-wide mansion that has been converted to a 10-unit cooperative in the historic section of Brooklyn Heights, near eight subway lines and a short walk from the Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park, DUMBO and the restaurants, shopping and more in the heart of Brooklyn Heights.
