It doesn’t take much to convince someone to head out to Brooklyn Heights, but this townhouse at 28 Garden Place (h/t Curbed) decided to pull out all the stops anyway. This $6.2 million, 3,360-square-foot brownstone features high ceilings, east and west exposures, original details and enough wood-burning fireplaces to make you forget all about this brutal winter we’ve endured.
The parlor level drips in original detail, with original medallions, crown moldings, and marble mantels for its two wood-burning fireplaces. The first is in the front parlor, or living room, and the second is in a dining room off the kitchen with breakfast room/sunroom. Off the dining room, a terrace has a spiral staircase leading to the garden below, if dining under the stars is your thing.
Upstairs, the third floor has a large master (you can always change the wallpaper) with two walk-in closets, a second bedroom with another fireplace, and a windowed bathroom. Two more bedrooms and a bathroom reside on the fourth floor (and yes, one of those bedrooms has a fireplace). There’s also a smaller office space, a walk-in closet and a washer and dryer.
The garden level has a private entrance and a fully equipped summer kitchen with direct access to the garden. There’s also a guest bedroom and a family room… with a fireplace.
28 Garden Place was built in 1850 and currently sits on a 21-by-75 foot deep lot on one of Brooklyn Heights’s most coveted streets. The home is near public schools, restaurants, and health clubs.
