From outside of the home, the 5,300 square foot brick townhouse looks like a traditional Cobble Hill  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  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  and maintained. The home also has a one-car garage, a large studio and opens to a landscaped garden .
