146 Willow St - Brooklyn Heights, New York
146 Willow Street is one of the most impressive single-family townhomes available in all of Brooklyn and is located in the most desirable section of historic Brooklyn Heights. 25' wide with approximately 9000 square feet of interior living space, 7 bedrooms, 7 full baths, and seven 7 levels, all served by an elevator, this home offers a scale that is nearly impossible to find in New York City. Constructed in 1920, this Neo-Grec mansion has just undergone a two-year, major renovation, the vision of renowned architectural firm Baxt Ingui. This undertaking has restored the home to its original use as a single family residence while simultaneously creating a home for the modern user which is warm, sophisticated, and imminently livable. Unlike most townhouses of this scale, light and air have been maximized by the design. A sweeping, wide atrium staircase ascend alongside the elevator to a large skylight and pours sun throughout the entire home. At least 35 windows bathe the home in natural light from three exposures. Also very rare for a home of this size, there are multiple ample outdoor spaces totaling approximately 2000 square feet including a 25' landscaped backyard, a 4th-floor terrace/green roof, and a massive landscaped roof deck with outdoor kitchen and views of Lower Manhattan and the harbor.The home incorporates the best of modern technology and is a designated Passive House. There is 7-zone air-conditioning with a 2-zone Zehnder Energy Recovery ventilator for air circulation and humidification. Ultra-energy-efficient Zola Simulated double hung triple pane windows and doors add additional insulation throughout. Radiant heated floors are integrated into each bathroom. The house is equipped with an advanced Lutron lighting system with smart pads and dimmers as well as invisible speakers in the primary rooms with regular speakers elsewhere. It is wired for power shades at on the Parlor and Master floors.Located on the ultra-coveted Willow Street, your new home is in close proximity to the world famous Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the new 85-acre urban sanctuary?Brooklyn Bridge Park, quaint shopping on Montague Street and a stone throw away from the NYC Greenmarket farmer's market. You will be a few blocks from not only nationally top-ranked schools but also the edgy DUMBO neighborhood. With nearly every NYC subway line available to transport you to Manhattan in one subway stop, this location rivals any on either side of the river. This is a rare opportunity and a superb value for a home of this size, location, and quality.
