From outside of the home, the 5,300 square foot brick townhouse looks like a traditional Cobble Hill [8] property. But once inside, the space gives way to a design and finish that is clean and contemporary with soaring ceilings and generous dimensions.

At 25-feet wide and 60-feet deep, the former commercial property [9] sits on a residential block and was re-built anew with tons of space, a skylight and even an elevator.

The four floor home boasts floor to ceiling windows, generous natural light and a living green wall that is professionally irrigated [10] and maintained. The home also has a one-car garage, a large studio and opens to a landscaped garden [11].
