Historic Brooklyn Heights Townhouse
Great views from this prime circa 1868 6-bedroom Joralemon Street townhouse is ready for new ownership to relish in its past or redesign as a dream home. Previously owned by Alexander Lyman Holly, a renowned steel engineer, a monument to his honor was erected in Washington Square Park in 1890. This historic 5-story home is nestled between Garden Place and Hicks Street. Currently used as a single residence but has a 3-unit certificate of occupancy. The gated street entrance leads to a garden apartment with direct access to the 20 X 36.5 landscaped garden. The grand staircase to the parlor floor boasts magnificent carved wood double doors with etched “No. 89” in the glass. The parlor level can be used as a living, dining and kitchen with a balcony and staircase leading to the garden. If you have a passion for the authentic, this Brooklyn treasure has 6 decorative fireplaces with original stone mantels, a glorious staircase and balustrade, cove niches for art display and an approx. 1,000-sq.ft. cellar with brick archways perfect for a wine cellar. Whether looking south or north, the sun shines through the greenery revealing the charming Joralemon Street. Build your dream roof deck with sweeping vistas of downtown Manhattan and the Brooklyn waterfront. 89 Joralemon is a short distance to public transportation and the newly landscaped waterfront park. Fall in love with this truly special home. Enjoy, create, live, work, entertain and bask in its beauty.
