The Brooklyn Heights Townhouse is a 20' wide home located on a coveted and Landmarked block not far from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. For the most part, the house had not been renovated, and our office was hired to modernize it while retaining and recreating period detail and character. The final layout closely approximated the original layout from the 1840's with a new kitchen on the Garden Level, two parlors for entertaining on the Parlor level, and bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper two levels.
Our work included a two-story addition at the garden-side of the building, all new mechanicals, and a completely reworked interior, including: new windows throughout, new wood floors, new stairs, new kitchen, and new bathrooms. Architectural details were based on original designs, and great care was taken to create a new home with quality historic character throughout.
