108 Willow Street, looking for its new owner for the first time in over fifty years, is a truly rare offering on a stunning Brooklyn Heights block.

With its original Queen Anne detailing and loft-like dimensions, 108 Willow stands out in the neighborhood in a trio of beautiful red brick facades, with a slate-tile turret along with its distinctive shingle and carved terracotta detailing. The home's extra-deep 18' x 64' footprint, 11' soaring ceilings throughout and more than 5,000 sf provide incredible scale and the opportunity to reimagine it as a majestic custom designed townhouse.

108 Willow Street features a dramatic parlor floor with elegant front and rear parlor sitting rooms and a 26-foot deep extension which can be opened up to create an amazing eat in, dream kitchen (see alternate floorplan). Designed by renowned architect William Halsey Wood (Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, Carnegie Free Library and others), dramatic, double-height gallery-style art walls frame a wide mahogany staircase that rises through the center of the house and is crowned by an extra-large, spectacular Tiffany stained-glass skylight. The lofty scale of this home continues to the third and fourth floors with five generous bedrooms, two full baths and a large, windowed laundry room that can be reconfigured as an additional bathroom. A full fifth floor attic can be reclaimed as additional bedroom or entertaining spaces, with potential for a skyline-facing roof terrace with views of NY Harbor and lower Manhattan. As a finishing touch, the sitting rooms, kitchen and bedrooms each boast a fireplace.

Stairs from the parlor floor lead down to a large two-bedroom garden apartment with a separate front entrance. This floor can easily be incorporated as additional living/bedroom space for use as a single-family townhouse. The rear garden-facing bedroom steps out to the west-facing garden & patio. The cellar includes a multi-purpose room, a second laundry area, the home's mechanicals, and tons of storage space.

This striking townhouse is a blank slate in a superb central Heights location (moments from the neighborhood's favorite restaurants, shops, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the 2/3/4/5/A/C/R trains), offering elegance, livability, and adaptability and ready to become the perfect home.
