Rarely does such a show-stopping property come on the market in Brooklyn Heights. At 29' wide and 60' deep, 76 Pierrepont Street is a superb example of the Gothic Revival architecture of the mid-to-late 1800's. Commissioned in 1857 by shipping merchant Henry B. Cromwell, this home has been thoughtfully preserved and painstakingly maintained by the same family since the 1960's. It now awaits a new owner to transport it into the next century. Enjoy the convenience and quiet elegance of New York's oldest landmarked neighborhood just one subway stop to Manhattan and surrounded on all sides by world-class dining, schools, shops, parks and amenities.Rich with amazing light and historic details including bay windows, a striking brick and brownstone facade, mansard roof, oversized windows, a dramatic parlor floor, dazzling marble mantles, original shutters, and an ornate sweeping staircase. Private outdoor sanctuaries abound and include an extra-large and perfectly manicured garden and three terraces off the back of the building.Currently configured as a 5-family home with a fantastic rent roll (250K/year as-is), this home has great potential for many uses. Use as-is for investment purposes only, or move in yourself and keep some rentals for investment income, or take over the entire property for use as a one-family home with enough space to easily add an elevator without compromising your living space. The massive dimensions of this home offer a blank canvas to create a one-family home of unprecendented scale and dimension.Do not miss this truly special opportunity to own one of the Grand Dame's of Brooklyn Heights on majestic and tree-lined Pierrepont Street, a block from every amenity on Montague Street, every subway line, the world-famous Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and a host of public and private schools within a few blocks.
