This four-story home at a bustling Brooklyn Heights crossroads is ready to be home, office, or whatever appears in your Brooklyn townhouse dreams. Asking $7,250,000, the 25-foot-wide home at 21 Schermerhorn Street, built in 1855, offers at least seven bedrooms, lots of sunlight, gracious proportions and intact historic details. Three floors of living space top what is now a dentist’s office with a charming back garden.

Situated on a tree-lined brownstone block, this beautifully-preserved city townhouse has been updated with new mechanicals. Modern upgrades include a split A/C system, refurbished stoop, new windows, hard-wired alarm system and freshly skim-coated walls and plasterwork.

On the parlor floor you’ll find the dramatic spaces that define the city’s historic brownstones. A grand living room opens into a formal dining room. Details include wedding-cake moldings, ceiling medallions, a wood-burning marble-mantled fireplace, plantation shutters, full-height townhouse windows and original mahogany-inlaid parquet floors.

A sun-filled eat-in kitchen with two walls of windows is set into an extension off the dining room. The kitchen boasts the latest in chef-ready appliances including a Viking 6-burner cooktop, double Viking ovens, a Sub-Zero fridge, Miele dishwasher, and a deep sink. An arched window overlooks the garden.

Up a hand-carved mahogany staircase is a glamorous primary suite with a walk-in closet. Next door is a library framed by exposed brick and another wood-burning fireplace. Also on this floor is a smaller bedroom and a large windowed bath. On the skylit top floor are three more bedrooms and an additional bath.

Back on the garden floor, a professionally landscaped back yard boasts an irrigation system, custom plantings and hardscaping. This enviable outdoor space looks ready to be the perfect urban oasis any time of day.

The garden floor will be delivered vacant, but it’s currently being used as a dentist’s office (so if you’re a dentist, you’re in luck!). The potential is here for creating a guest suite, home office, or an extension of your grand residence, with access to the verdant back garden. Below the garden level is a well-maintained, clean, dry cellar for plenty of storage.
