"Whatever a house is to the heart and body of a man - refuge, comfort, and luxury - surely it is as much or more to the spirit." -Mary Oliver

A testament to the historical and enduring allure of Brownstone Brooklyn, this single-family mansion is a grand, romantic version of a life filled with beauty, luxury, and a sense of place. One of the most exquisite and unique homes in all of NYC, this 1887 Queen Anne Mansion will take your breath away. Restored with patience and love, with a respect for history and patina, the property was creatively reimagined for every modern comfort--prepare to be transported to another world. History, passion, rock n' roll, parties, dreams...this is your chance to create the next stories that these walls will never tell.

"It's like living in my own universe. The rooms are evocative. The light is magical. The house takes me to different time periods, countries, lives... all while remaining in the middle of a Brooklyn block." - Current Owner
