Besen & Associates, as exclusive agent for Ownership, is pleased to offer for sale 50 Orange Street (the “Property”), a pristine 5-story, 20-unit elevator building plus a finished cellar.  This 14,850± SF residential property is located in historic Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn’s premiere and most desirable neighborhood. The building is situated on a parcel measuring 27’ x 100’ with frontage along Orange Street and Hicks Street. The thoughtfully designed units are representative of the building’s character while incorporating modern sensibilities for today’s living.


Built in the early 1900’s and renovated substantially from top to bottom by ownership, this redeveloped building features 20 luxurious apartments, over-sized bay windows, a new fitness center, a rooftop deck, smartphone intercom, a new laundry room, storage units, two bike storage rooms and a golf room with a putting green. The building mechanicals have been restored and replaced over the course of the current owner’s tenure. The façade and all structural and mechanical elements of the property are in excellent condition. Its grand exterior stands out amongst the surrounding brownstones and the neighborhood’s historic charm, giving residents a one-of-a kind building to call home.
