This Gorgeous Mansion In NYC Is For Sale For $2.7 Million

A gorgeous, historical mansion in Bushwick has hit the market for $2.7 million. According to the Compass listing, the home was built in the year 1900, has seven bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms, and totals at over 5,000 square feet, plus an additional 1,725 square feet in the 10-foot tall ceiling basement.

According to both the listing and New York Post, the home was built by design duo Helmle and Huberty, who also built the Prospect Park Boathouse as well as other famous historical buildings in Brooklyn. Huberty built the home for himself and his family, and it has been in the same family since 1937.

The colonial revival mansion is an homage to its Gilded Age history, with lots of original features, tall ceilings, chandeliers, original fireplaces, original molding, stained glass windows, beautiful staircases, and more. The current owner actually housed numerous antiques in the home but will be selling and auctioning them off separately from the home.

Gorgeous 20th century colonial revival

The exterior of the home is worth the price point alone, with beautiful brick walls, authentic colonial revival friezes, a stunning cathedral style dormer, dramatic window trim, two large bay windows framing the breathtaking front door, wrought iron fenced faux balconies, and Roman-style columns to support them. Another entryway to the left of the home connects to the large main porch, all of which are fenced by intricate wrought iron, as is the property itself.

While the front yard is limited in terms of greenery, as is expected for a Brooklyn home, two green patches of grass separate to make room for the old stone-rounded steps leading to the front door. There is also an original brick fireplace on the left side of the home, already creating a sense of dedication to a historical aesthetic. The house has invaluable curb appeal and stands in much of its original 20th-century historical integrity.

Gilded Age glamor

The interior of the home is breathtaking, almost disorientingly so, as it is a true step back into the past. According to the Compass listing, the home had a doctor's office inside it for a long time, so many of the offices, parlors and other rooms have a history as a lab, examining room, or waiting area.

Entrance to one of the parlors or sitting rooms is accessed by the side entrance, which was used for patients. A bay window lets in plenty of natural light and sits directly across one of the original fireplaces. Beautiful 20th century patterned wood flooring pairs with plastered white walls and a built-in bookshelf for a room that can be both updated or kept true to its historical lineage.

Other parlors, the kitchen, dining room, and an office carry this historical beauty throughout and are pictured in the listing both as-is and how they can potentially be modernized. The real beauty of the first floor, though, is the sunroom. Stunning molded green walls are lined with large windows on three sides, with a matching radiator and built-in bench and original star-patterned beige tiles.

Historical Bushwick beauty

The second floor is accessed by a wide staircase with a landing in the middle. The landing has an absolutely stunning diamond-patterned wood floor with ornate gridding, tall ceilings, and a beautiful stained glass window. It is large enough for a couple of chairs and a side table and sits under a lovely historic light pendant.

The second floor of the Brooklyn home is floored with the same diamond-patterned and gridded wood and hosts some of the bedrooms, which are large with plenty of natural light and able to morph into any preferred designing style. The bathrooms, though, are marvelous, reflecting a gorgeous 20s and 30s aesthetic. One bathroom has green tiles on the tall ceilings, beautiful patterned beige floor tiles, a huge window, original counters, a pink sink, and a modem shower. Another has white hexagonal tiled floors, subway tiles on the bottom half of the walls, and a vintage pink on the top half. A large, dramatic clawfoot tub takes center stage, pairing with a small, delicate historic toilet, radiator, and gold wall sconces.
