Brooklyn, New York, 11201 $3,000,000
35 Joralemon Street has stood tall on the northern edge of Willowtown for almost 175 years. As if touched by the grand and dreamy history, Brooklyn Heights' landmark properties only get better with age. Step into this home and you are sure to notice within it - a reflection of New York City's history.
Just a block from the new Brooklyn Bridge Park, with its stunning and expansive views of lower Manhattan and the New York Harbor, 35 Joralemon maintains all the original details one would expect to adorn such a classic property. Maintained to perfection, the home is well prepared for the 21st Century.
Separated into 2 duplexes, each with 2 bedrooms, the home is a set up as a practical 2-family residence. The lower duplex encompasses the parlor and garden levels, with 2 bathrooms and a magnificent classic parlor. The parlor enchants the visitor and resident alike with its original wide-plank floors and a wood-burning fireplace (one of three found at 35 Joralemon Street) that looks into a classic formal dining room just off the spacious kitchen. Downstairs, two bedrooms and two baths are ready to welcome home the weary legs and minds at the end of busy days.
The bottom-most floor also lets out into a sunroom overlooking the garden. Not just a sunroom, this is a two-story glass wall through which light pours into the home over a magnificent family or work space. The room brings the green outdoor garden into the heart of the household. What a tremendous modern-day amenity in a home that retains many a year of history.
The exquisite sequence of the upper duplex starts with a beautiful and open loft-like space with exposed brick, original floors, one of the wood burning fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams. Tall windows look out over the quaint hill of Joralemon Street. A rear balcony as if presides over the garden, tucked under the trees and overlooking the green spaces that the decades have seen sprout between the homes toward the historic Grace Court. This rare view, shared by only a handful of select Brooklyn Heights homes, is perfect for morning coffee or a lovely evening with a great book. The open-plan kitchen makes entertaining easy.
The top-most floor hosts an irresistibly tall gallery space that leads to 2 massive bedrooms and a full bathroom. Spanning the entire top floor of the home, with its magnificently soaring ceilings, the level allows for innumerable configuration options. This space alone is a textbook, grand-scale Pre-Civil War design... at its best.
The full basement is dry and clean with laundry already installed. Central air and forced heat keep every room comfortable year-round.
