    Property Details

    Set on Brooklyn’s most prominent and revered street, 212 Columbia Heights is a grand and stately, mint condition, 25’-wide mansion. This astounding townhome was built in 1855, and has recently been gut renovated and completely restored. It is one of New York City’s finest and most luxurious historic homes. The original doors at the top of the stoop entry open to a parlor floor featuring approximately 14’ ceilings, original floors and fireplace mantels, and restored historic plaster moldings. No detail was spared in outfitting this home with every desirable modern amenity, while retaining its rarified character. The classic double parlor is configured as a sitting room and dining room, with a wet bar beside the dining room. The crown jewel is the one-of-a-kind waterfront view through the oversized rear parlor windows. New York Harbor, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the Manhattan skyline frame a picturesque vantage point rarely available in a townhouse. The garden floor has natural light and ceiling heights reminiscent of most parlor floors. There is a wide open chef’s kitchen, which abuts a spacious informal living room. The kitchen features high-end appliances, luxurious countertops, and ample storage space. The cellar below is configured as a recreation/guest suite, an enormous private wine cellar, a laundry room, and neatly kept storage and mechanicals. Beyond the back door is the charming, planted garden, with a sound system and privacy just below the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Accessible from both the cellar and garden floor, this space is perfect for relaxation or entertainment. Above the parlor is the primary suite, with two large walk-in closets, a gracious, five-piece primary bathroom, an office, and a private sitting room with a fireplace. The views only get better as you move upstairs, and the ceiling heights make this enormous floorplate feel even larger. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with a jack and jill bathroom, along with a laundry room. The rear bedroom spans the full width of the house with several windows once again framing the skyline. Above, in the finished former attic, there is a full bathroom, a bedroom, a living room, and a gym, along with cedar storage closets. 212 Columbia Heights is the quintessential Brooklyn waterfront mansion. Steps from cafes, shops, and restaurants, and only minutes from Manhattan, this stunning home stands apart as Brooklyn’s finest home.
