Description

141 Henry Street is a rare, 25' wide, 1831 wood frame townhouse located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. In the same family since 1959, this fabulous home has been meticulously maintained and updated over the years to include new landmarked windows and siding, wiring, plumbing and CAC. 141 Henry has extensive allowable FAR so you can enlarge and personalize this amazing home and it even boasts a subterranean wine cellar under the rear yard!
141 Henry Street is a fabulous and welcoming home which has produced writers, educators, lawyers and artists and continues to maintain its historic charm, character and creative vibe.
True to its origins, it offers a wide inviting portico that leads thru double doors into the ornate foyer which runs the length of the house to a lovely deep rear yard surrounded by birch trees and a solid brick wall.
The unique set-back stairs create an open gracious feel to the whole parlor floor. Floor to ceiling windows in the living room glow with western light. A wood burning fireplace beckons guests through original pocket doors to the dining room and open kitchen area complete with subzero and some cinematic retro appliances!
Half way up the winding stair you'll discover a perfect 70's era black and white, windowed bath. Continuing up you'll find an enormous primary bedroom, a huge library-- large enough for a desk, endless books and a baby grand-- and finally, an office or sitting room looking west over the trees tops and brownstones on Henry Street.
Up a second flight is another full bath, plus two king sized connected bedrooms and another office/full bedroom. Closets abound in every room and the halls are doublewide with high ceilings, and seamless wood floors which lend a sense of grandeur and continuity to every room.
Finally, the basement level, which likely served as the original kitchen, has a laundry area, and is used as a game room with windows and access to the yard and wine cellar. This floor offers plenty of space to expand the home's footprint.
Ideally located in Brooklyn Heights, just blocks to the promenade, schools, subways, shopping, restaurants, plus Pierrepont and Brooklyn Bridge Parks, 141 Henry offers the opportunity of a lifetime to continue its artistic legacy and create your own masterpiece!
