Property Description

Living History in Beautiful Brooklyn Heights

290 Hicks Street is a classic townhouse on a charming, landmark block. Upon entering through the stately front door, the Parlor level features multiple seating areas. The space is versatile and easily arranged for entertaining, learning the piano, or relaxing by the fire. Currently, it is setup with an august library in the front, and a formal living room with a wood burning fireplace overlooking the bucolic garden.

Downstairs on the Garden level, a massive eat-in-kitchen flows to the formal dining area making it a breeze to host dinner parties or luncheons. The kitchen looks out onto the patio with a grill and a backyard full of flowers. The back of the garden is framed with an ivy-laced wall, providing privacy.

Upstairs on the second floor, the primary suite enjoys a large rear-facing bedroom, spacious walk-through closet, and primary bathroom outfitted with double vanity and a sliding glass door shower. A second bedroom on the floor gazes out over the tree-lined street.

On the third floor are three more bedrooms and a windowed bathroom with a double sink and tub. The large open space in the center of the floor is illuminated by two skylights and can be used as a playroom, office or gym. There is also laundry and additional storage on this floor.

The house has a large basement that can be built-out or used in its current form as storage. The lot runs East to West for beautiful morning and evening light.

Located in the storied neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, this house is a part of history. Built in 1856, this house has only been owned by four families. It is said Kahlil Gibran wrote some of his 1923 book The Prophet in this house.

Today, the neighborhood is bustling with restaurants like Ingas Bar, River Deli, stores like Sahadi's and Collyer's Mansion, a plethora of schools and the brand-new Brooklyn Heights Public Library at Cadman Plaza. 290 Hicks Street is conveniently positioned near restaurant row on Atlantic Avenue. Pop over to dinner at Pips, The Long Island Bar or Colonie; or drop in for an evening cocktail at Elsa, Henry Public or Bohemien Bar. It is also only blocks away from the gorgeous 85 acre riverfront park, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Brooklyn Heights is easily accessible by the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, F and R trains and a multitude of buses.

This is a truly special house. Become the next steward to this part of Brooklyn Heights history.
