This very special property has the flexibility of three separate and unique living areas - the main Quadruplex townhouse, a large garden floor-through rental and a separate 3 floor carriage house with garage. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the great properties in Brooklyn Heights. Located on Prime Remsen Street, both townhouse and carriage house have been restored to perfection.

The main house is configured as a Parlor Quadraplex, plus garden floor rental. The quadruplex features 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, an enormous top floor home office (or additional bedroom), two charming terraces, plus a beautifully landscaped garden. This elegant five story home (plus finished basement) is built on a grand scale.

The Triple Parlor has 12' ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and a custom-built kitchen opening to the secluded terrace and garden.

The third floor consists of a luxurious master bedroom suite including a spacious bay windowed sitting area, copious built-in closets plus two luxurious bathrooms. This floor has an additional large bedroom with an en suite bath.

The fourth floor offers two large bedrooms, both with en suite fully renovated bathrooms, a laundry room, and a private deck. The fifth floor consists of a glorious home office with a wall of south facing windows, an additional bedroom, and two bathrooms.

Topping off this quadruplex is a large roof deck with wonderful views of Brownstone Brooklyn and the New York Harbor and skyline.

The garden floor is currently configured as a massive kitchen opening to an enclosed back garden and a large living/bedroom and bath. This floor has many possible uses - a staging area for large scale entertaining in the upper quad, a guest or au pair suite or a separate rental unit if desired.

The amazing finished rec room/screening room basement is a perfect setting for a party.

Fully equipped with a pool table, juke box, and foos ball table.

A unique feature of this property is the truly breath taking carriage house which adjoins the back garden of the townhouse. The center level is a garage accessed through a dead-end alley - not easy to find in the center of Brooklyn Heights. The upper level is a beautifully renovated charming loft-like large one bedroom apartment with a full open kitchen and a gorgeous bathroom.

The piece de resistance is what has been created in the basement level of this structure. A grotto like screening room with a half bath complemented by an amazing glass enclosed rain shower which is day lit by a stained glass ceiling under a portion of the private garden of the townhouse. Must be seen to be appreciated.

This home, which was built with the highest level of craftsmanship, has retained all of its classic details.

From the inlaid marquetry floors, to the fireplace mantles and crown moldings, this home has been perfectly maintained and restored with the highest quality materials and care for its history.
