Brownstone Belt Real Estate Round-Up: Escape From Agita


There is nothing so unpleasant as the middle of the week during the middle of the summer of 2017 in New York City. The air is like custard, the subway is hellish, and matters are further bedeviled by that special sort of agita that only a breaking news smartphone notification can bring.

If you can find a respite from this, I suggest you take it. Here are some abodes where the front door holds the same promise as the River Lethe.

Venture towards venerable Brooklyn Heights for this utterly modern townhouse with roots in the 19th century. 165 Columbia Heights was built in 1899, but its four bedroom, five bathroom layout is timeless.

The spiral staircase, gorgeous kitchen, and ample outdoor space are just a few of the perks of this home for all seasons. How much would you pay for a place where you leave your worries at the door? This pad is on the market for $9,900,000, and the listing agent is Maggie Sherman of Compass.
