44 Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights is a trophy home, recently reimagined in a gut renovation by its design industry owners. A notable Modernist townhouse designed by renowned architects Joseph Merz and Mary Merz in 1965 and one of only three modern Landmark-approved townhouses in the neighborhood, this spectacular home now offers three bedrooms and two and half baths, a stunning new kitchen, and gorgeous living, dining and home office spaces in its 3,036 square feet, along with a coveted private garage.
The brand-new interior design of this home perfectly complements the Merz's modernist fa ade of stone, glass and redwood detailing. Elegant design elements start at the front entrance with Ann Sacks marble flooring and continue into the incredible kitchen featuring custom built ash cabinetry, 42-inch AGA stove and polished Pietra Vivia marble counters. The dining room faces west over the garden, with doors to the deck and garden below. One flight up is the main living room, also facing the garden, with a wall of custom designed shelving framing the room. A powder room on this floor also features a Pietra Vivia marble vanity. The full width front room is an amazing workspace, with two custom designed built-in desks framing the center floor to ceiling window onto Willow Place. The top floor is an elegant primary bedroom suite, with two walk-in closets and a stunning bathroom featuring Workstead lighting, a Pietra Vivia double vanity, and huge walk-in shower. Two additional bedrooms are on the lower level, with another brand-new bathroom and a home gym. A utility room on this floor provides generous storage space.
In addition to designer lighting throughout, new maple floors and a Sonos sound system, this home has a brand-new roof and a new, all-electric zoned HVAC system. This spectacular home is minutes from all the major subways at Borough Hall, two blocks from the Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront, and moments from the fantastic shopping and dining destinations on Atlantic Avenue.
