Ridiculous Brownstone in Brooklyn Heights Asks $16M | Armonk Real Estate


↑ We might as well end the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, because this completely unreal brownstone in Brooklyn Heights makes the rest of this week’s entries look like a bunch of crackhouses. Located right above the Promenade, 192 Columbia Heights—a designated landmark built in 1859—is 25′-wide with 14′ ceilings, two terraces, a landscaped backyard, and some pretty spectacular views of New York Harbor. It has three working fireplaces with period mantels,  floor-to-ceiling bay windows, a walnut-and-cherry staircase, original oak parquet flooring, and walnut wainscoting. Oh, and according to The New York Times, Norman Mailer once had a “private writing aerie” on the fifth floor. It’s asking a whopping $16 million, which would set a record for single-family homes in Brooklyn Heights. Yikes yikes yikes.
