Own a piece of New York City history by becoming the fifth-ever owner of this magnificent five-story brownstone in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. There is no better block in Brooklyn than where Remsen Street meets the Brooklyn Heights Promenade at the circle overlooking the New York Harbor. With almost no traffic on the street,the bustling boats in the harbor,and the breathtaking view of Lower Manhattan,you immediately know that you are somewhere special. And 35 Remsen Street is as special as its locationa one-of-a-kind 19th century brownstone,built in the 1860s,when highly skilled craftsmen worked on a grand scale in the Gilded Age. The house is 25 feet wide with a stately front stoop leading to the double set of front doors made out of rich mahogany with its original hardware intact. Once you walk through the sweeping front doors,you are stepping into the impressive entryway that leads into 7,600 square feet of living space. The first floor boasts a double parlor,formal dining room,and kitchen with three original fireplace mantles,ornate parquet floors,original shutters,and floor-to-ceiling windows. Climb the majestic stairs up to the next three floors and find six additional marble fireplaces. From the roof,which is just calling out for a deck,you can see the harbor and the Manhattan skyline. The house,owned by the same family for nearly a century and with only three prior owners,is currently configured as a double duplex with a garden office space,but can easily be restored to a single-family home. There were few changes made to the house over the years,and most detailsfrom light fixtures to moldingshave remained intact. The prior owner was Ethel Dreier,chairman of Brooklyn's Woman Suffrage Party and president of the Women's City Club of New York,who hosted many of the era's dignitaries out of 35 Remsen Street,including activist Jane Addams and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Brooklyn Heights is known as America's first suburb and was the first landmarked district in New York City. The neighborhood remains beautifully preserved and intimate to this day. With its close proximity to Manhattan and the Promenade,35 Remsen Street is a truly enchanting place to live.
