This $3.7M Cobble Hill townhouse is period-perfect with rooms to spare and harbor views

December 7, 2017

On a quintessential tree-lined Cobble Hill block just to the east of the Columbia Street Waterfront, the equally quintessential historic townhouse at 388 Henry Street is seeking a new owner for only the third time in 100 years. Asking $3.7 million, the four-story, two-family home is filled with period details, with plenty of room for new ones.

On the parlor floor, a grand foyer leads to an even grander front parlor. Floor-to-ceiling windows and 11.5-foot ceilings frame the wealth of original detail.

A starring role goes to two circa 1919 custom brass chandeliers with a supporting cast of original plaster crown molding, panels and framing details. Six stone mantle fireplaces and inlaid wood floors form a worthy stage and highlight the care taken by the home’s previous owners.

On the garden level is a large formal dining room and a full eat-in kitchen that looks out onto a 47-foot private garden oasis. One level down is a full-height cellar that, if finished, would be perfect for fitness, wine, movies or play.

Upstairs are the bedrooms, including a master suite and two more bright and spacious chambers separated by large walk-in closets. The master suite offers rare and unique-to-Brooklyn views out over Warren Place Mews.

On the top floor is a separate unit with its own kitchen and bath, a perfect nanny suite or income-producing rental. From this floor, incredible harbor views make it hard not to love this top-most aerie.

The 19.17-foot-by-40-foot building sits on a 100-foot deep lot with the possibility of buildable square footage (FAR) available.
