Nestled on one of Brooklyn Heights' most desirable and enchanting streets, Garden Place, rests this magnificent 5-story townhouse with a large private garden, affording a rare opportunity for the brownstone buyer. Built circa 1885, the handsome building occupying a 95' lot offers generous living quarters in Brooklyn's best neighborhood, with 19'2" x 60' depth on its first 2 floors and 19'2" x 40" on the top 3.

Currently this gem is configured with an exceptional 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom owners' residence that spans 3.5 levels, and a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath duplex above that can serve as an ideal tenant's apartment bringing attractive monthly income. However, you can also combine both units and convert the townhouse to a custom single-family dream home should you wish to. Interiors are brightened by oversized windows on east and west exposures and enhanced by such elegant features as rich wood floors, wood-burning fireplaces, high airy ceilings, tasteful moldings, and other classically beautiful details. Central-air found throughout this two-family home.

The owner's unit can be conveniently accessed from the front stoop leading into the parlor floor, and an entry beneath the stoop that opens to the garden floor mudroom. The parlor level is perfect for entertaining, presenting an effortless open flow between the spacious living room with a wood-burning fireplace and the gracious dining room for family meals and hosting guests. Beyond is a sun-filled open kitchen with abundant cabinetry, and a built-in banquette for casual fare.

A staircase descends to the dramatic garden level illuminated by a striking cylindrical skylight streaming natural light through the 2-story mezzanine into the garden floor below. The open-concept layout is complemented by fabulous double-height ceilings in the rear living area with sliding glass doors to the tranquil garden. This multipurpose floor additionally has a wet bar, extensive closets, a library, laundry room, powder room, mechanical room, and mudroom lined with closets.

The lovely 3rd floor consists of 2 sizable bedrooms with ample closets and wood-burning fireplaces. A deck can be installed in the west bedroom above the extension below. Centrally positioned is a full hall bath. Plus there's another bedroom and bath on floor 4.

The original staircase takes you to the upper duplex with a front-facing living room, wood-burning fireplace, galley kitchen and half bath. Three bedrooms and a full bath reside on the top floor.

Set at the south end of Garden Place, this historic townhouse is located in a gorgeous enclave close to excellent shopping and dining on Atlantic Avenue as well as Court and Smith Streets in adjacent Cobble Hill. Also nearby are a multitude of subway lines at Borough Hall, and premier outdoor attractions like the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and world-class Brooklyn Bridge Park. Co-exclusive.
