Own a piece of history with this grand maisonette in an architecturally significant mansion designed by Richard Upjohn, who was famous for his many gothic revival churches. Upon entering on Hicks Street through your own private stoop, this 4 bedroom duplex feels like a freestanding house, with the services and benefits of a white-glove co-op, including a full-time doorman and porter. North, east, and southern exposures ensure natural light and open views to the charming surrounding streets of Brooklyn Heights.
The grand parlor level has 13' ceilings and the owners have meticulously restored and maintained the architectural details of the original mansion. A large foyer with powder room opens to an elegant formal dining room, with the bright, windowed kitchen beyond. The show-stopping living room has a wood-burning fireplace and lovely corner views of Hicks and Pierrepont streets through double height windows. In the center of the house you'll find a grand staircase and gallery, off of which there are two large bedrooms with ensuite baths (one is currently used as a tv room) and a laundry/storage room
Upstairs, the ceiling heights are just shy of 12' and you'll find a luxuriously spacious and bright corner master bedroom with a decorative fireplace, oversized windows, and plentiful closets. On this level you'll also find a second bedroom currently used as a study and a large windowed master bath with glass shower and soaking tub.
