Newly renovated and restored, 145 Columbia Heights is a majestic, 26'-wide townhouse set on Brooklyn's finest block. Currently the Brooklyn Heights Association Designer Showhouse, and recently featured in Architectural Digest, this magnificent property epitomizes the best of Brooklyn Heights - a grand, 66'-deep, triple parlor with soaring 13' ceilings and preserved period details, a spacious, full-floor master bedroom suite, and five beautifully landscaped and thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces.
The grand stoop entry is both opulent and inviting, setting an old-world tone for this turnkey mansion. Having undergone several intensive renovations recently, 145 Columbia Heights is a completely rebuilt home with a brand new luxurious kitchen, new top-of-the-line HVAC, plumbing, and electric underneath an immaculate restoration of period details.
Most recently, 145 Columbia Heights underwent a meticulous kitchen renovation by renowned architecture and design firm Baxt Ingui, and luxury general contractor Taffera Fine Buildings & Finishes. Additionally, this home received aesthetic overhauls from some of Brooklyn's top designers. The result is a magical mansion on an incredible block, outfitted with custom features and finishes rarely available in today's market.
Both classic and contemporary, this stunning home blends history with modern luxury. The immaculate triple parlor is the best floor in the house, with kitchen, living, and dining seamlessly connected for both entertainment and everyday living. The parlor level also features a unique second staircase as well as two functional fireplaces. The spectacular kitchen is outfitted with custom millwork, luxurious appliances, and incomparable storage space, with both secondary refrigeration and an enormous pantry. The cozy terrace off the kitchen leads down to a beautifully landscaped garden adorned with well-manicured greenery and a breathtaking waterfall.
The third floor is a full-floor primary bedroom suite. A luxurious bathroom with a steam shower and radiant heat floors, a library, and sitting room, and another planted and landscaped outdoor space. There are spacious secondary bedrooms and bathrooms on the fourth floor, with abundant storage in every nook and cranny along the way.
The hidden treasures of this home lie upstairs. The fifth-floor addition is finished in contemporary style with floating stairs to the roof deck. With a gas fireplace, a full bathroom, wet bar, and roof terrace, this floor is invisible from the street and completely unexpected. A completely redesigned bedroom and full bathroom also sit on this level. Above this floor is a stunning, multi-level, landscaped bluestone roof with both city and water views. The roofdeck also features a state of the art irrigation system, an automatic awning for privacy, and a Bowers and Wilkins outdoor sound system.
The garden floor functions either as additional bedrooms and living space or as a separate apartment with its own kitchen. This sizable space is conveniently usable for live-in staff or guest suite. And below, the cellar has full ceiling heights and potential for use as a media room, gym, or ample storage.
In short, Number 145 has it all. This unique and enormous townhouse is both luxurious and accessible, with an efficiently utilized layout. All of this only minutes from Manhattan, in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, minutes from every amenity a prospective purchaser could desire.
