One of the most beautiful and prestigious properties in Brooklyn just got a little more affordable. At $6.5 million, this four-story, 5,000-square-foot Brooklyn Heights townhouse is a steal compared to its ambitious original $8 million price tag.
Brokerage Brown Harris Stevens just reduced the price again, by $450,000, after months of waiting for a buyer. Cranberry Street might not quite have the cache of Park Avenue, but the quaint alley boasts one of the most interesting mixtures of architectural styles in New York, from Greek revival to Art Deco.
The home, built in the 1820s, was completely redone in 2005, including a kitchen so sleek and modern it should cook the food itself. The house has views of the Brooklyn Bridge and, for those in need of some reassurance, Manhattan. — Laura Kusisto
This deliciously beautiful Brooklyn Heights townhouse dates from the 1820s, when the area was becoming America’s first suburb.
