Exquisite Historic Elegance Meets Modern Comforts in Brooklyn Heights: 126 Pierrepont Street, NY

Discover the pinnacle of refined living at 126 Pierrepont Street, an exquisite 3-family brownstone nestled in the heart of coveted Brooklyn Heights. Dating back to the mid-1800s, this historic gem has been thoughtfully restored to seamlessly merge the elegance of yesteryears with the contemporary conveniences of today, offering three distinctive duplex apartments that redefine urban sophistication.

Garden/Parlor Duplex Oasis:
As you step into this lower duplex, a world of sophistication and comfort unfolds before you, graced by both a private garden-level entrance and a grand main parlor entrance. A residence of distinction, it has graced the pages of national and international shelter magazines, a testament to its artful fusion of the past and present.

Dual HVAC zones grant personalized climate control, with hidden condensers discreetly sheltered beneath the backyard staircase. The living room is crowned by a working wood-burning fireplace adorned with a Rossa Verona carved marble mantle, evoking timeless grandeur. Italian stucco wall finishes and meticulously restored plaster details transport you to a bygone era. Fine decorative lighting from revered designers such as Holly Hunt, Roman Thomas, Charles Edwards, and vintage fixtures from Le Puces (Paris) casts an inviting glow, setting the perfect ambiance.

The gourmet kitchen, adorned with SubZero and Thermador appliances and Carrara marble countertops, is a culinary masterpiece. Step into the private garden haven overlooking the serenity of St. Ann's Church, a tranquil sanctuary amid the city's vibrant rhythm. Marvel at the Chinese Tai Lake scholar's stone as it punctuates both front and back gardens, while a stone mosaic pathway hails from Suzhou, China. Ensuite bedrooms offer resplendent solace, each an oasis of luxury, featuring bespoke finishes and enchanting nuances. Bathrooms resonate with vintage allure, harmoniously merging curated plumbing fixtures from Waterworks, Barber Wilson, Herbeau, and others, with contemporary functionality. Additional enhancements include SimplySafe smoke and CO alarms, a garden entrance with bicycle accommodation under stoop, and more.

Middle Duplex Sophistication:
The middle duplex is a symphony of historical aesthetics and modern comforts, drawing inspiration from the refined simplicity of Gustavian architecture.

Art Deco-inspired railing patterns and meticulously crafted kitchen cabinetry in curly maple, reminiscent of Gustavian design, epitomize bespoke craftsmanship. Vintage plumbing fixtures, Carrara marble mantles, and hand-carved tiger maple handrails, akin to the design language of the Golden Age in Newport, exude character and timeless allure. The Aga Cooker stands as a focal point in the kitchen, accentuating quarter-sawn White Oak wide plank floors reminiscent of English country estates. Original Carrara marble mantles and functional wood-burning fireplaces grace select rooms with an air of classic elegance. Personalized comfort is ensured through supplemental heat from separate HVAC units. Vintage-inspired lighting fixtures from Christian Liaigre, Charles Edwards, and others, and custom touches throughout narrate the rich history of this exceptional apartment.

Top Floor Apartment Elegance:
The top floor apartment exudes private sophistication, a sanctuary harmoniously uniting history, character, and contemporary comforts.

Skylights bathe the space in natural light, adjustable via custom shutters offering both light regulation and privacy. The main room embraces historic charm with geometric wainscot trim inspired by Versailles, seamlessly integrating with modern elements. A gas fireplace nestled within newly designed custom pine plank cabinetry and refined decorative lighting, including a pendant from Christian Liaigre, epitomizes comfort. Two bedrooms provide ample space, drawing sunlight through skylights and boasting bespoke drapery and LED spot lights. Bathrooms present vintage plumbing fixtures from Waterworks and Urban Archaeology, intertwined with creative glass and stone elements, curated for an exceptional experience. Each facet of this apartment holds a tale, from repurposed pendant lighting from Grand Central Station to vintage porcelain fixtures from Rockefellers house and Albert Cheuret's designs.

Experience Brooklyn Heights Living:
Beyond the boundaries of this resplendent brownstone lies the enchanting neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. Enveloped by tree-lined streets, historic architecture, and easy access to the iconic Brooklyn Promenade, you'll find a community that embodies the true essence of New York living. With proximity to the sprawling Brooklyn Bridge Park, upscale dining, cultural havens, and esteemed educational institutions, this location offers an unparalleled lifestyle that marries convenience with charm.

Lucrative Rental Opportunity:

With two additional duplex apartments, you can generate lucrative rental income while residing in one of the units yourself. This unique setup allows for both a desirable lifestyle and a smart financial move, enhancing the allure of 126 Pierrepont Street.

A Masterpiece Awaits:
