Affectionately referred to as The Captains House, 13 Cranberry Street was built by British Sea Captain Richard Mortimer in 1829 as a primary residence conveniently located to the then, nearby shipping docks. Now, steps from the Brooklyn promenade, surrounded by some of the most historic homes in Brooklyn, 13 Cranberry Street is a magnificent 5 story, 25 foot wide masterpiece spanning approximately 5,000 square feet of historic comfort.
Built in 1829 and recently renovated to offer a modern touch while preserving the historic details, 13 Cranberry offers six generous bedrooms, four bathrooms, four working wood burning fireplaces, full gym, luscious backyard and exceptional parlor floor. This home leaves nothing to be desired.
Enter up the new brownstone heated stoop into the grand entrance with its heated mosaic tile floor and semicircle glass transom. The grand foyer is double in size as the stairs are uniquely pushed to the back of the home and doubled over, a style imported from Britain to great effect here. The parlor floor, with its soaring ceilings, offers a spacious formal living room with original wood burning fireplace and mantel. The stunning original crown moldings are of the fruits for which the neighboring streets are named and original shutters compliment the newly installed windows. With warm wide plank walnut flooring and custom built-in cabinetry lining the Eastern wall of the seemingly endless Parlor, this floor flows from lounge to formal dining to open kitchen, marrying the two wood burning fireplaces along the way. The beautifully designed custom kitchen cabinetry with walnut accents and Glassos counters are accompanied by the grand Calcutta Gold island and chef worthy appliances by Wolf, Subzero and Milele. This spacious kitchen has plenty of seating for company who can enjoy the view of the garden and neighboring tree tops through the bank of three large windows. With radiant heat at your feet and seamless connection to the dining room and entire parlor floor, this truly is a dream kitchen.
The second level of this home is currently being used as the entire primary suite. The grand primary bedroom has striking crown moldings, original working wood burning fireplace, a spacious walk-in closet with built in vanity, and a newly renovated primary bathroom. This luxurious spa-like bathroom features double sinks, large separate soaking tub, standalone shower, oversized skylight and even a hidden television in the mirror. This floor also boasts a wall of custom built-in shelves in the hallway and two more bedrooms with original shutters and another working wood burning fireplace.
Ascend another flight to three more spacious bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have original decorative mantels, walk-in closets, and large stunning moldings. There is a delightful custom bathroom with large tub, heated floors, lacquered cabinetry and mosaic tile. Hidden in the hallway youll also find a laundry closet with a washer/dryer.
The floor through open design garden level is home to a full sized gym, a wall of custom cabinetry and a cozy den with plenty of room for any of your entertaining needs. There is access to the basement from this floor and a separate entrance to the tranquil backyard with IPE fencing, bluestone pavers, outdoor sofa, dining table and a hard piped built-in gas BBQ grill.
In addition, this house boasts striking hardwood floors throughout, a whole house water filtration system, humidified multi zone HVAC system, built in Sonos sound system throughout, customized network wifi, heated gutters, heated stoop and sidewalk, irrigation system for front and back gardens, and custom safety/child gates to match existing stairs.
