141 State Street is a grand and stately, 25’-wide townhouse that offers the rarest of opportunities in New York City - a fully renovated home with immaculately preserved and restored original detail and multiple outdoor spaces, including a large landscaped garden surrounded by a spectacular array of greenery and trees, two terraces, and a roof deck with sweeping views of the Manhattan Skyline. Recently renovated by renowned architects Baxt Ingui and constructed by Taffera Fine Building & Finishes, this stunning home is truly one of a kind.
Built 25’-wide on an extra-deep 109’ lot, 141 State features gracious proportions and an extension on the garden and parlor floors. Period details are intact throughout this historic home, including original pine floors, plaster moldings, the original staircase with mahogany banister, marble fireplace mantels, and a restored stained glass skylight. 12’ ceilings accentuate these features, bringing in unobstructed light through oversized double-hung windows.
The unique, 54’-deep floorplate allows for the sought-after open layout parlor, with kitchen, living, and dining seamlessly connected. The chef’s kitchen is illuminated by a wall of windows and a skylight above, and the immaculate double parlor is a grand entertainment space reminiscent of 19th century, high society New York. A deck off the kitchen leads down to a charming, planted garden, surrounded by townhouse gardens. As the last house on the block, 141 State has beautiful exposure to the gardens along Clinton Street, creating an open, airy, and green outdoor space.
The garden floor offers unusually high ceilings and flexibility as a cozy living room and a guest suite with a kitchen and full bathroom. Below, the finished basement features ample storage and a climate-controlled wine cellar with space for ~1,000 bottles.
A full-floor master suite occupies the third level, with a well-appointed master bath, massive walk-in closets, and a private sitting room and office. A private master floor deck overlooks the sunlit gardens below. The fourth level is outfitted with gracious secondary bedrooms and a beautiful full bathroom. The fifth floor is a former attic, with vaulted ceilings, rustic wide-plank floors, a sitting room with a wood-burning fireplace, a full bathroom, and views of the Manhattan skyline. The private roof deck completes this home, with sweeping views of the skyline and Brooklyn, and privacy rarely found in outdoor spaces.
Located in prime Brooklyn Heights, on a charming tree-lined street, 141 State Street is conveniently located only minutes from Manhattan, and is surrounded by shops, cafes, and restaurants in all directions. This incredible brownstone awaits the discerning purchaser seeking a combination of luxury and history like no other.
