Town House

Built in 1899

Welcome to 257 Henry Street in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, an impressive 26.5 foot-wide x 60 foot-deep townhouse offering nearly 6,000sf over five floors, with 5-6 bedrooms and separate home office spaces, and a beautifully landscaped garden and patio. With the extra wide and deep footprint, the grand parlor floor's nearly 12 foot ceilings and rarely seen center fireplaces allow for grand living and dining spaces. The front parlor features gorgeous floor to ceiling windows, an immense pier mirror, and can accommodate a huge dining table as well as a separate seating area by the fireplace. Just beyond, the perfectly situated kitchen opens to a more casual living/dining space with a windowed banquette, and French doors out to a deck and lovely garden and patio area below. The kitchen's timeless pairing of white and mahogany cabinetry and white marble counters offers tons of storage, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and 6-burner BlueStar range. A powder room and coat closet are tucked under the stairs. The massive primary bedroom suite is one flight up, along with an additional bedroom with its own sitting room, and a separate study and full bath. The fourth floor features two more bedrooms, a full bath, and separate study with custom cabinetry concealing a large laundry area with additional storage. The fifth floor attic is an impressive space with a front lounge/entertaining room framed by a beautiful arched window, and a rear storage room can be reclaimed as an additional bedroom or study. A large 1,300sf garden apartment can easily be connected to the upper floors for use as additional living space, guest rooms or home office, or can continue to be used as a high-income rental. The full basement is clean and dry with solid mechanicals, and there is central air conditioning throughout the house. This special home sits in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, moments from the Borough Hall subways, all of the shopping and dining destinations on Montague St, Court St and Atlantic Avenue, and the spectacular waterfront amenities at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
