About this property
Situated on a picturesque Brooklyn Heights block, 47 Columbia Place wraps a secret world in a modern façade. Enter a reception landing from either the personal garage or front door, and the home reveals its charm and possibilities. Take a few short steps up to the entertaining and kitchen area, with all the chef’s needs at hand, and a dining space that floats above the double-height living area with garden views.
A double-height wall of glass begins a floor below in the living room, with its fieldstone, wood-burning fireplace and soaring views – and an invitation to the magical garden just outside—a 3 tiered landscape. Stone terraces and steps lead to sheltered nooks and water features, including a koi pond, rock gardens and waterfalls. This flow of water from the garden toward the living space emphasizes the idea of bringing nature into the home. A sheltered terrace creates the perfect space for outdoor cooking and dining.
The private bedroom levels open to sun and air, with one floor featuring three bedrooms, including one with wood-burning fireplace, and two full baths. The master-level floor includes a spacious master bedroom and bath with its own fireplace, a quiet library, and a private, open-air atrium and sitting area. There is central air throughout.
