The 25-foot-wide, six-family townhouse at 118 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights has the classic beauty that defines the neighborhood’s coveted brownstones, with restored original interior details dating back to 1900. Asking for $8,599,000, the 10,200 square foot property represents an opportunity to both live and gain or create new space. The house currently offers an owner’s triplex and five separate one-bedroom apartments at market price. Options include creating a single-family mansion or condominiums, or skipping the renovation effort and enjoying the home as-is, with income-generating units and a spacious residence.
The owner’s triplex extends over the living room, garden and cellar levels of the building. The centerpiece of this three-story living space is an elegant large room on the parlor level.
On the ground floor is a second living room. Beyond is a bright, updated farmhouse kitchen with Wolf and SubZero appliances. A massive island anchors the kitchen, providing seating and a marble-topped prep space. An adjacent separate dining room opens onto a private patio.
Three large bedrooms are framed by 13 foot ceilings and tall windows. The owners’ area includes three baths and a shower room; an additional home office adds even more options. In the basement you will find a 500 bottle wine cellar, media center, exercise area, laundry room and storage.
In addition to the owner’s residence, five one-bedroom apartments are in updated condition and are currently asking for market rents. Behind the classic brownstone stoop and facade, in one of the city’s most sought-after areas, the house has ten potential bedrooms, with at least as many possibilities.
