In the Historic enclave of Brooklyn Heights, when it comes to properties that retain original period detail the market is not flooded with choices but among the ones that exist none are as exceptional, uncommon homes that are a rarity like 104 Pierrepont #1. When the rarity extends further to the street named after the builder of the specific home – the Pierreponts - and the co-op developer is no other than the architect and historian Norval White, author of the AIA guide to New York city, the rarity is transformed into a one-of-a-kind.
Built in 1856 this 3,000 square foot of interior with 700 square foot of garden, 3 bedroom, 2.5 baths (with Jacuzzi Deep Soaking Tub and Steam Sauna) Parlor and Garden duplex retains all the original splendor of the epoch and includes plenty of updating for current living standards that have evolved over the last 161 years, while leaving room for the next owner to personalize it for themselves and further expand its size by re-imagining the large cellar space into a fitness or screening room. Recreation space and much more.
At 104 Pierrepont "grand" is a quality of both volume and content. The extensive list of period details include: the rich hand-carved wood entry hall, an enormous ceiling fresco with cherubs flying across the 12’ high Parlor ceiling, mahogany inlaid floors, intricate and intact plaster moldings, exceptional millwork, leaded glass cabinets and transoms, ornate marble mantles and mirrors, pocket doors, wainscoting and casings.
