Dating from the earliest days of townhouse construction in Brooklyn Heights, 118 Joralemon is a magnificent example of the Greek Revival style, featuring the following prized elements:
  • Beautiful brick facade
  • 6 over 6 floor-to-ceiling parlor windows
  • Soaring ceilings
  • Facade and interior details derived from early Greek architecture. At 25’ wide, all rooms, staircases, and hallways offer generous proportions rarely found in Brooklyn townhouses. The house was built in 1847-1848 on land owned in turn by various Brooklyn luminaries, including Remsen, Livingston, and Vanderbeeck. All of Brooklyn history is represented in 118 Joralemon St. In addition to the historical pedigree, this home has benefitted from loving restoration by recent owners. Here is a brief list of those changes:
  • Central air conditioning throughout the house
  • Custom new Landmarks-approved windows on the facade and rear
  • Updated kitchen and baths
  • 4 wood-burning fireplaces
  • Temperature controlled wine cellar
  • Spa tub in landscaped, serene garden with south views 118 Joralemon has a 2 family certificate of occupancy, with a 1 bedroom apartment on the garden level. The parlor floor offers a gracious living room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen with huge windows overlooking the garden, and a powder room. Upstairs is a master bedroom (with private balcony) and bath, as well as a sitting/media room. The next floor is made up of 2 large bedrooms, a bath with laundry, and a spacious office. As a bonus, the very top floor, with greenhouse windows, is a large media/playroom, 2 more bedrooms, and a bath. At over 6,000 square feet, the house manages to have enormous scale as well as a truly homey feel. As an added bonus, the current owners own an indoor condo parking space 2 blocks away which is included with the house.
