The seller Stephanie Walls says “It is no secret that Grace Court Alley is one of the most visited historical streets in Brooklyn Heights. Listed in the Michelin guidebooks, it draws tourists who stroll down the alley admiring the carriage house facades and pointing to their architectural elements. Grace Church on Hicks Street was one of the first buildings to be listed on the historical register and the renovated stable for the church’s horses is located on Grace Court Alley. Carriage houses like the ones on Grace Court Alley were long ago abundant in New York City, but unfortunately most were replaced by newer and often not very note-worthy structures before the start of historical designations and the Landmarks Commission. On the northeast corner of Hicks and Grace Court Alley several historic carriage houses were demolished to make way for one of these mediocre high-rise buildings and it reminds us of how things might have been if not for the Brooklyn Historical Association and Landmarks. Grace Court Alley is one of the most authentic and picturesque mews left in New York City. “
9 Grace Court Alley was originally built in 1895 and was recently restored with the highest quality materials and attention paid to every detail. This exclusive private lane (with no street parking allowed) is lined with only 15 historic homes in the heart of the Brooklyn Heights. From this location, you are moments from public transportation, many prestigious schools, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and an endless array of dining and shopping options on nearby Montague Street.
