A whale of a timeTrim your sails and drop anchor in this exquisite four bedroom, four floor townhome in Brooklyn Heights. Expertly restored by its current owners, this grand urban mansion has won awards from New York's Landmark Conservancy. Filled with treasures gathered from journeys across the seven seas and swimming with references to New York's maritime past, this truly exceptional space will please landlubbers and old salts alike.Call him IshmaelYour hosts are a lawyer and a writer who share a passion for Brooklyn. They have raised their children here and filled their home from stem to stern with the tapestries, paintings and decorative touches that reflect their worldly taste.A port in a stormGrace Court spreads itself over four spacious floors. The living room is decorated in hues of coffee and cream with natural fibre carpets and a marble fireplace offer an ideal setting to enjoy a naval adventure story. A ship's wheel on the wall ensures an even keel as you transition to the kitchen - it's no cramped galley. Marble countertops, soaring ceilings and warm wood cabinets will inspire a perfect bouillabaisse. A plant-filled solarium towards the back of the house opens out into a tranquil back garden for a taste of the Brooklyn air.Unfurl your sails in the second-floor study, a gorgeous, comfortable room where oil paintings, woven rugs, and patterned throw pillows blend into tantalizing visual riot. The study's mauve walls and large windows open out into a back terrace. Sit outside on a chair of driftwood and hope for a red sky at night, or ascend with a book to the skylit crow's nest sitting room on the top floor. When its time to retire, there will be no settling into a sailor's hammock. The light-filled bedrooms are enlivened by decorative touches: a sculpture of a whale, maritime curtains, and a map of the seven seas. The billowy expanse of the bed in the master bedroom will have you dreaming of being rocked to sleep amid gentle swells.Anchors aweighBrooklyn Heights is a historic neighbourhood of stately brownstone townhouses and quiet side streets only one stop from lower Manhattan. Easily navigated, it's in walking distance to the gourmet food shops of Atlantic Avenue and the lively shopping and restaurant and bar scenes of adjacent Cobble Hill. As the sun sets, a stroll to the waterfront promenade is only blacks away. Gaze across New York harbour, the Brooklyn Bridge and the skyline of Manhattan and watch your ship come in.
