The townhouse dates to 1845, and in its current form combines original details with modern updates.


67 Joralemon St. is a magnificent specimen of a Brooklyn townhouse, located on a quiet, cobblestone street in Brooklyn Heights. Currently listed for $5,750,000 (after a price cut of $225,000), the four-story, single-family house has many original details and four bedrooms plus a den, as well as two full baths and two half baths. 

The open kitchen, located on the garden level, has an island and is equipped with Viking appliances. A door leads out to a garden and brick patio. The garden level of the house also features built-in storage, as well as a powder room and laundry. A dining room with its original mantel is also on this floor. 

The parlor floor has a living room and rear sitting room, as well as high ceilings, original wide-plank floors, and another powder room. 

The master bedroom on the third floor runs the width of the house, and has large windows and storage. Another bedroom and a full bath are also on this level. 

The top floor has two additional bedrooms, a room that could be used as a small office or den, and more storage space. 

In addition to original details such as pocket doors and mantels, the house has modern conveniences like zoned central air. Also convenient: the location three blocks from the Borough Hall subway station, and a short walk to Brooklyn Bridge Park and the shops and restaurants of Brooklyn Heights.
