As the design world turns its attention to the joys of living in a true Mid-Century modern home, 48 Willow Place is ready for its new owner to enjoy over 5500 SF of renovated living, plus your very own GARAGE. One of 3 landmarked Mid-Century homes in picturesque Bklyn Heights, and a stone's throw to Manhattan, this 37' wide wonder will amaze its new owner with an array of upgrades that stay true to its original design intentions. Designed and built by the world-renowned & locally beloved architects, Joseph & Mary Merz in 1969 for their own family, it is now being offered for sale after a spare no expenses remodel by architect Ian Starling, formerly ofSHoP Architects. Recently featured in Architectural Digest, the home now perfectly balances design with state-of-the-art technology and comfort. The new owner can move right in without having to lift a finger and enjoy 4-5 beds, 2 home offices, and 4.5 baths. Upgrades include new HVAC, kitchen, baths, steam room, plumbing, electric, roof, EV charger, windows, lighting, millwork, luxury appliances, in-ceiling speakers, Madera wood floors, heated bathroom tiles, a laundry room, gym and a large garden landscaped to create areas for dining, relaxing and soaking in the hot tub.

A jewel of high Mid-Century design, minimalism and connection to nature are the trademarks of this property. Redwood, maple, stone & glass are repeated throughout, connecting the home to the natural world at every turn through oversized windows with garden views. Distinguished by a striking exterior, this extra-wide lot gives privacy from the street side, and incredible light with a corner orientation that affords windows on 3 sides. The oversized garden has been reimagined by the team from the Brooklyn Bridge Park and includes stone paths, underground cedar hot and cold plunge pools, a firepit, a raised pergola, and a black pine tar cedar fence. Beyond the garden is your very own carport.

The main floor encompasses the entire 37' width of the lot and includes the kitchen, dining and living areas, all on one floor with two sets of glass doors leading to the garden. On the south side of this room is an Aalto-inspired windowed kitchen rebuilt out of the same maple millwork that is repeated throughout the home. An oversized island was added and paneled appliances include Wolf cooktop, range and fridge, and Waterworks fixtures. The center living space is anchored by a large fireplace, and a dining room on the north side has a wall of built-in storage. A mud room greets you at the front door, plus a walk-in pantry and a breakfast nook for casual dining. An inspired powder room features Watermark fixtures.

Head upstairs to a kids' suite with 2 bedrooms, a playroom, two full baths, and an additional home office with custom built ins. Both baths are an artful combination of Cle' ceramics and lime-wash paint, accented with aged brass fixtures. The entire top floor is comprised of an exquisite primary suite with a home office. Featuring soaring ceiling heights and skyline views through massive windows, the bedroom employs an ingenious headboard that divides the sleeping space from a large dressing room. Custom built-ins offer infinite storage, from desk, bookshelves, and bench in the home office, to the magnificent display shelves in the bedroom. The dressing room offers nine custom closets plus a dressing table with an aged brass countertop. The bathroom employs ivory-hued Cle' ceramics combined with aged-brass hardware, a Kohler tub, and a steam shower room, all shrouded in light through a massive skylight. The lighting in every room, including outdoors, has been chosen with an exacting eye and includes such well-known designers as George Nelson, Allied Maker, and Noguchi. The finished windowed basement includes a guest suite, media room, kitchenette, gym, laundry room, and storage. Easy access to Brooklyn Bridge Park, public and private schools, and the best amenities of Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill.
