Double Duplex Townhouse in the Heart of Brooklyn
Steps from the Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park, the finest schools, and vibrant neighborhood shops, 70 Orange Street is an ideal Brooklyn Heights residence. The townhouse has been in the same family for generations, and is currently configured as two units that can be restored to a single-family mansion with ease. The architectural bones, which date back to 1899, are suitable for any renovations, large or small.
Boasting a 22-foot wide facade, grand windows, and details reminiscent of an English Tudor, step inside and prepare to be charmed. Highlights include eight bedrooms, four full and one half baths, two well-appointed kitchens, two lovely fireplaces, a walk-out basement that opens to a South-facing patio, and a fourth floor terrace with a view of the harbor. This double duplex townhouse is vacant, move-in ready, and priced to compete.
Garden Duplex with Basement Access
The sunny main floor of this duplex contains spacious living and dining rooms and a lovely chef’s kitchen. Two bedrooms, which share a Jack and Jill bathroom, are situated at the rear of the main floor. The upper section of the duplex is located at the rear of the third floor and hosts two more gracious bedrooms with another Jack and Jill bathroom.
The lower level is a walk-out basement that provides the duplex private access to a rear garden patio. In addition to two recreation rooms, which could also be used for potential guest rooms or home offices, there is also a laundry room, powder room, and separate area that accommodates both storage and townhouse mechanicals.
Third Floor Duplex
The grand upper duplex begins on the third floor. Boasting a giant bay window, fireplace, and wet bar in the formal living room as well as a bright dining room with built-in china cabinets, the front of the third floor feels like a traditional parlour and has ample space for entertaining. A well-appointed kitchen with walk-in pantry completes this portion of the duplex.
Three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms are found on the fourth floor. There is also a large room that opens onto a private terrace. It could serve as a home office or additional sitting space.
