This is a totally special house with wonderful light both front and back. The back view is down the very pretty allee, Henderson Place, all the way to East 86th Street. There is no structure immediately behind as in most houses, thus making the light and feeling of openness extraordinary. The house was designed and rebuilt by Lichten Craig Architects including new walls, staircase, floors, wiring and windows. Everything is in perfect condition, completely and tastefully redone, including 4 zone central air, sound system, irrigated gardens front and back and new kitchen and baths. The room proportions, ceiling height (11' and 10') and attention to detail in this house make it worth a viewing for anyone considering a townhome. First showings at the open house on Wednesday, March 7th, from 11:30am-1pm.
Brooklyn was once its own city, and still has a proud, independent, we’re-the-best-place-to-live vibe.
There’s certainly a residential experience for every taste. Brooklyn Heights is a classic suburb, with a half-mile long Promenade, 19th-century townhouses, and small co-ops. Along with the Heights, neighborhoods like Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and Park Slope make up an area known as “Brownstone Brooklyn,” and their row houses often boast historical detailing, high ceilings, and fireplaces. Single-family houses abound in Brooklyn also, in neighborhoods like Ditmas Park, which has one of the largest groups of Victorian houses in the country; Flatbush, which has Colonial Revival houses with large lawns, and Mill Basin, where it’s possible to buy a waterfront single-family with a swimming pool. To the south, the peninsula of Coney Island has four neighborhoods — Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Manhattan Beach and Seagate — that are all about beaches, sun, and sand.
