THE 25 foot wide brownstone in Cobble Hill you have looked for. Move right in to this over 4000 square feet, sun-filled, 4 story home that has ample space for you as well as two income-producing apartments.
All beautifully renovated in the last two years, the owner's duplex is designed for modern living. There are new floor to ceiling windows in the living room with a decorative fireplace, mantle, and wonderful moldings. Through the living room is a study/dining room, leading to a new eat-in kitchen with SubZero and Bosch appliances, a spacious work/breakfast island, marble counter tops, and a powder room.
The lower floor has 3 bedrooms, an open play/sitting area, an office, a master spa bath, and tons of closets and storage space. Tucked away neatly is a Bosch washer & dryer. The third floor is a large two bedroom apartment with many details like wide plank floors and a beautiful claw foot tub. While maintaining many of the details, the kitchen and bath are both redone. The 4th floor is a two bedroom rent controlled apartment. The wiring and plumbing have all been updated as have the mechanicals.
Best of all is the wonderful location. On tree-lined Douglass Street, it is just a short stroll to all the shops, restaurants, theaters, and markets nearby. And equally close to both Carroll Park and Playground, and Cobble Hill Park. For subway convenience you are only 3 stops from Manhattan. Just what you have been looking for so come and see for yourself.

Runs from Degraw Street in the south to Atlantic Avenue in the north, from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to the West to Court Street to the east.
Even though Cobble Hill is in Northwest Brooklyn, don’t be surprised if you hear old-timers call this neighborhood of serene brownstones “South Brooklyn” — because Cobble Hill was once south of the city of Brooklyn, where Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn are today. In fact, Cobble Hill’s one-way streets, bluestone sidewalks, and turn-of-the-century buildings, now mostly co-ops, give you the sensation of having slipped back a century or two. Apartments are often brownstone floor-throughs, many with renovated baths and kitchens.
