Perfectly positioned on one of the most buzzworthy fruit streets in one of Brooklyn's most desirable neighborhoods sits 13 Cranberry, a 25 foot wide historical masterpiece awaiting its new owner.
Constructed in 1829 just steps from Brooklyn's waterfront, this home has stood the test of time. The property was perfectly restored and reimagined by Baxt Ingui Architects, the prolific firm responsible for some of Brooklyn's most incredible private residences. Unlike many modern homes that have completely ripped out the timeless details, 13 Cranberry spared no expense undergoing the painstaking process to beautifully restore the historic details and marry them with modern upgrades that support today's lifestyle.
The first thing that one notices upon entering the gorgeous foyer are the heated floors. What may not be noticed, however, is that the owner also heated the stoop and the sidewalk outside of the house. The owner of this property will never have to worry about shoveling snow thanks to this thoughtful (and expensive) upgrade! The width of the entry is remarkable. There are beautiful new floors on the parlor level that blend perfectly with original moldings, fireplaces, and a staircase that still has the original wax seal to hide the original deed from when the Sea Captain, Richard Mortimer, was first living in the property nearly 200 years ago. The unique positioning of the home on Cranberry faces a row of gardens across the street and an additional open row of gardens out of the back of the home. This is almost unheard of and offers complete privacy and an open flow of sunlight from both north and south with no homes impeding in either direction
The parlor level is completely open spanning the nearly 50 foot depth of the house. It features two fireplaces, plenty of storage (including a built-in wine cooler), and 11 foot ceilings with original detailed moldings. The back of the room features an open, gorgeous chef's kitchen. All white cabinets and white marble counters glow with light from the huge window overlooking the private garden. There is a large center island, an abundance of cabinets, and a full suite of high end appliances from Viking, Sub Zero, and Miele.
The garden level is very sunny and was just remodeled in 2022 to be a brand new media and play area with a home gym and sauna in a room off the rear.
The second level of the home is dedicated to the owners' suite. The incredible ceiling height continues with a fireplace and a spa bathroom that will take your breath away. There are two dressing rooms and an additional bonus room that can be a huge office, sitting room, or additional bedroom depending upon the needs. Upstairs are two additional enormous bedrooms that both feature fireplaces and large closets. This level also features an additional bathroom and laundry room.
The final level is an amazing attic that is the perfect canvas for an awesome office or hang out room.
13 Cranberry is arguably the most well located home in Brooklyn Heights.
