This wood-framed townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, dating from 1816, was renovated and a new front façade was designed to recall the historic façade that had been altered in the 1950s.

The house was honored with a 2012 Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award for its exemplary restoration. Other notable recipients of the award are the renovation of the Edgar Allen Poe cottage and the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport.
