Most Expensive Zip Codes: 11201: Estate of the Day
The home I have chosen for this zip code is in the area of Cobble Hill. Cobble Hill is a mix of Brooklyn's past along with trendy new shops and restaurants. The tree-lined neighborhoods are home to many older homes including this restored 19th Century landmark home. The double property includes an 1833 Greek Revival townhouse and a carriage house with parking. The main residence is located on a block of older townhouses. The carriage house, on the north side of the property is reached through the garden and opens onto a mews, lined with former stables and carriage houses bordering Cobble Hill Park.
The home has a wide double entry hall, large front and rear parlors with 12-foot ceilings, a butler's pantry and a sitting room. The home has been completely renovated but some of the charming architectural details from the home's history remain including the marble fireplace mantles. A rear staircase leads to the garden level family rooms and huge cook's kitchen.The third floor master suite has abedroom and bath overlooking gardens, a study and two large dressing rooms. The fourth floor is home to another double suite with a a bath and central dressing area, laundry and storage areas, and a smaller bedroom. On the fifth floor there is a skylit loft-like attic with four rooms. This home is listed at $7.875 million.
