35 Remsen Street is the true epitome of a Brooklyn trophy property. Tucked away on a picturesque and quiet waterfront cul-de-sac in prime Brooklyn Heights, its sheer scale and museum-quality period details await a new owner to steward this Grand Dame into the 21st Century. Sitting majestically near the corner of Remsen St. and Montague Terrace at 25' wide, 5-stories, and over 60' deep on a 100' lot, this is a unique opportunity for its new owner to create a masterpiece that includes an elevator with absolutely no compromises to the living spaces. Unlike other 25' wide homes that are not built this deep, be assured that at 35 Remsen, an elevator won't interfere with the dramatic scale of the rooms. Instead, it will give you the opportunity to maintain the majestic scale while also adding the convenience of an elevator to make full use of all 5 floors. There is even the possibility of adding an accessible roofdeck with unrivaled views of both NY harbor and lower Manhattan without the tourists and traffic of being on a Promenade block. A stunning example of Romanesque Revival architecture, this home is replete with finely crafted historic details throughout, the perfect backdrop for a modern, classic, or transitional aesthetic, but with the warmth that only comes through in a turn-of-the century property. Defined by graceful and oversized archways and doors, soaring ceilings, stunning fretwork, stained glass transoms, plaster moldings and ceiling medallions, hand-carved marble and wood mantles, original brass light fixtures, inlaid wood floors and pocket shutters. Most notable is a sweeping staircase with a hand-carved newel post and ornate burled mahogany wainscoting running from the parlor all the way to the 3rd floor, enveloping the staircase in old-world luxury. Enter up a graceful and wide stoop into the awe-inspiring triple parlor where you will be greeted with not one, but two perfectly preserved oversized Pier mirrors with benches. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the front parlor, perfect for your living room, while the back parlor, defined by stunning stained-glass windows, makes the perfect open kitchen while still maintaining a central parlor for formal dining. This floor is so enormous and loft-like that there is even space for both a butler's pantry with a walkout to the charming garden, and a spacious powder room. Owned for decades by a doctor and his family, the entire garden level of this home has the unique zoning overlay to be either an office OR residential space. What could be better than the opportunity to legally bring your staff and run a business in such a divine and convenient neighborhood as Brooklyn Heights? But of course, if you don't need to work from home, this floor also allows the opportunity to include a mudroom, guest room, nanny suite, art studio and playroom to the already spacious upper four floors. Head to the third floor where three sizable bedrooms await, another impressive feat of scale where two bathrooms could also comfortably fit. The fourth and fifth floors are now used as a duplex apartment and include a kitchen on the fourth floor plus two bedrooms and a bath, easily converted back into three bedrooms and two baths. Distinguished by amazing light flooding in through skylights, the fifth-floor houses two additional bedrooms, a laundry room, a bathroom, and a second living room. This floor is easily converted into three more bedrooms and two additional baths. Ceiling heights are extraordinary on every single floor of this property and the possibilities are endless for the discerning buyer looking for an extraordinary property on one of the most discrete yet convenient and significant blocks in all of Brooklyn. Enjoy a dazzling array of amenities in every direction including public and private schools, award-winning restaurants and shops, parking garages, dog parks, and of course, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Promenade. Bring your architect and create the masterpiece of your dreams.
