Built in 1844 nestled on a tree-lined Brooklyn Heights block, this 6,000+/- SF townhome boasts considerable size and scale including 5 floors, a pristine 1,100+/- SF cellar, 7 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. This home also includes 8 fireplaces, ornate molding, bold columns, pocket doors and a 1,350+/- SF private garden. Built in 1901 and owned by the same family for the past 40 years, this Early Greek Revival townhome captures the elegance of its' historic time period while blending modern upgrades and conveniences. Currently configured as two separate residences, this legal two family can easily be converted into a single-family home.

Upon entering the foyer of the primary 7-bedroom residence, one is immediately welcomed by a spacious living room with soaring approx. 11' ceilings which leads into an equally grand formal dining room. A kitchen and separate breakfast area are located beyond the dining room, connecting to an outdoor staircase that leads to a tranquil garden. The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, a double-oven, dishwasher, and marble countertops/backsplash. The second level includes a beautiful library with a fireplace and adjacent bedroom. Down the hall, the large master bedroom includes an ensuite bath and spacious balcony overlooking the garden. The third floor includes 3 expansive bedrooms with picturesque windows and a fireplace in two of the three generously-proportioned rooms. Each floor also includes ample storage and closet space throughout.

The second residence, a 1-bedroom garden-level apartment, includes two fireplaces - one in the living room and one in the front-facing large bedroom. The sun-lit kitchen includes a dishwasher, spacious cabinetry, and French doors that open directly into the serene garden.

Perfectly positioned in Brooklyn Heights, 261 Henry St. is near the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and convenient transportation.
