CLASSIC TOWNHOUSE APPEAL
300 Hicks, in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, is a handsome townhouse built in 1854. It is 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep on a 100-foot lot with 4000 square feet of living space on 4 floors, a 1000-sf basement and 980-sf of outdoor space. Views to the front over Hicks Street are of townhouses and to the rear, the deep lots on the east side of Willow Place and the west side of Hicks. This double lot depth provides splendid light and an open sky panorama above a full block of airy garden greenery. Elements of the classic appeal are enhanced by the dimensions of the house, with tall windows and high ceilings adding excitement to the prospect of redesigning a historic house to suit 21st century lifestyles.

In the 60 years of family ownership, conscientious maintenance and timely upgrades have included a beautiful brownstone facade and stoop, new windows front and back, exposed brick walls, and a large oval skylight above the original staircase. A legal 4-family, there are three rentals with 2 beds and 1 bath each on the parlor, 2nd and 3rd floors. The recently renovated garden apartment is kept for the family and has private access to the garden and massive storage space in the large dry cellar with a full-size washer dryer and a separate room for mechanicals.

In terms of value, Hicks Street between Joralemon and State has experienced a renaissance, with high-end restorations of one townhouse after another. Sales of renovated houses on this block have experienced stratospheric price increases topping $3,000 per square foot and rising. One possible purchase scenario for those converting to single family occupancy is to begin designing, planning and filing, while enjoying the benefit of rental income for the year that may take. Current one-year leases expire 10/31/24. The many pleasures of living in beautiful 19th century Brooklyn Heights, NYC's first Historic District, are well-known and include, but are not limited to, a spectacular 85-acre waterfront park with views across the harbor to Manhattan, easily reached by multiple subway lines and local ferry service on a route that originally dates to 1642.
