What makes this brownstone on the south side of Brooklyn Heights so special isn’t the outside—though that sure is a beautiful Federalist facade. It is the expansive interiors, which have not been, in the words of broker Phyllis Norton-Towers, “chopped up.”
“The rooms are original, all big and square, with great flow and light,” she said.
There are tons of original details, too, like a carved marble fire place and enough molding to start a bonfire, though the Observer would never condone such a thing. With seven bedrooms and 3.5 baths, the five-story house is large for the neighborhood, as is the lot, at 106 feet deep.
“It’s phenomenal, just phenomenal,” Ms. Norton-Towers added. “One of the nicest listing I’ve had in a long time.” Hopefully that won’t make her other clients jealous, but it sure is saying a lot, considering Ms. Norton-Towers also represented Norah Jones’ Cobble Hill house.
The house has not been on the market for three decades, so if you’ve got the $4.3 million it’s asking, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime buy.
