...Introducing 48 Garden Place Townhouse, a stunning single-family brownstone that exudes elegance and historical significance. Originally the garden for the estate of Philip Livingston, a signer of the Declaration of Independence in the late 18th Century, Garden Place has earned the reputation of one of the quietest, most beautiful, and sought after residential locations in all of New York City, particularly within the Brooklyn Heights Historic District.

Designed by the renowned Brooklyn architectural firm, Parfitt Brothers, and built by James W. Dearing in the late 1800s, this classic Neo-Grec style townhouse boasts unique Eastlake-influenced details. The approximately 5,100 sq. ft. home has been expertly renovated to the highest modern standard, while maintaining much of the original details that make these historic properties so special. The property boasts approximately 1,100 sq. ft. of private, multi-level outdoor space, including a beautifully landscaped garden and two terraces. This impressive townhome is 60' deep on the garden and parlor floors, and 40' deep on each of the three floors above. The welcoming, short stoop and entryway are elegantly framed by the carved detailed design work of the facade, unique to the Neo-Grec version of the classic Italianate Brownstone.

The impressive, deep double parlor floor features two wood-burning fireplaces and wood pocket doors that lead to an open chef’s kitchen. A rare, wide skylight over the middle parlor floor and another over the staircase add to the home's bright and airy feel. The fully renovated chef’s kitchen features quartz and stainless steel countertops, custom cabinetry, two sinks, stainless steel Miele appliances (including two dishwashers, two stovetops, and two ovens), Liebherr refrigerator, and NewAir wine cooler. The terrace off the rear parlor overlooks, and has access to, the landscaped garden below.

The primary suite, located on the entire second floor, includes a wood-burning fireplace, a full bath with steam shower and heated towel rack, dressing room, and a library, which opens to a large, full-width, very private terrace with a water line. The third floor features two bedrooms, each with carved white marble fireplaces, and a full bath with heated towel rack. The fourth floor features three bedrooms, a full bath, and charming tin ceilings.

Accessible via two separate staircases from the parlor level, or directly from the front porch, the garden level features patterned glass tiles, a huge mud room with custom cabinetry, large laundry room with Kenmore washer and dryer, renovated full bath, and a 22’ recreation room with a window wall that opens directly to the landscaped garden, which is equipped with a gas line, water line, and bluestone pavers.

The many upgrades throughout include, staircase restoration, plasterwork and moldings, fully outfitted chef’s kitchen, updated bathrooms with designer accents, fireplaces, custom cabinetry, and luxurious oak hardwood floors in the kitchen and entryways. The property has also previously been upgraded with electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, security, and 4-zone central air conditioning.

This historically significant and thoughtfully renovated property is perfectly located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, moments away from Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn Heights Promenade, excellent dining, shopping, entertainment, and transportation.
