Property Description

In the heart of the north heights, where the skyline can still be seen from stoops, sits 45 Willow Street, a stunning 25' wide townhouse. Originally built in 1825, this renovated townhome features a handsome Flemish-bond brick facade, a charming stoop entry and a classic double parlor with period details, stunning pine and oak floors, and Marvin windows throughout. Once owned by renowned landscape architect Alice Ireys, whose projects count the Brooklyn Botanic Garden fragrance garden and Abigail Adams museum, this house exudes charm and character--and of course, has an exceptional garden unlike any other.

The parlor floor features ample ceiling heights and a butler's pantry, making it ideal for elegant entertainment. The open layout garden level is adorned with a chef's kitchen, a family room, and a dining area anchored by a brick fireplace.

This cozy space looks out onto the incredible, two-tiered, landscaped garden designed by Alice Ireys. The garden, a past winner of American Society of Landscape Architects Design Merit Award, accentuates the exceptional natural light that covers the property throughout the day, and serves as a green oasis in the heart of New York City. With upper and lower fanned terraces in both brick and original bluestone, this garden is a rare sanctuary--it is both beautiful to gaze upon from the home and laid out perfectly for entertainment and enjoyment. When in the open-air garden, one can feel transported to the country.

Above, the luxurious master suite includes a stately bedroom, a gracious den/library with a fireplace, and a spacious master bath. The cozy den and library overlooks historic townhouses along Willow Street. Just above the master bedroom sits a corner office with a ship's-bow feel, a current architectural trend, featuring garden and rooftop views. On the top floor, there are three sizable bedrooms with a laundry room and full bathroom, as well as a den with built-in storage and shelving. This open and airy space is perfect for school-work, lounging, reading, and relaxation.

Only steps from Brooklyn Bridge Park and the famed Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Number 45 is conveniently located near countless shops, restaurants, and public transit options. Additionally, this historic home is steps away from local restaurants and cafes along Henry Street, and merely minutes away from the bustling dining scene in DUMBO along Old Fulton Street. This one of a kind townhouse is truly a special opportunity for a discerning purchaser seeking a piece of beautifully renovated real estate history.
