The Brooklyn Heights Association is has announced the location of the 2022 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse.

Located at 145 Columbia Heights and just steps from the world-famous Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the historic townhouse seamlessly blends old-world architecture with modern luxury. Each room will be dramatically transformed through the creativity of over a dozen interior designers from Brooklyn and New York City’s celebrated design community.

The showhouse will open to the public this fall beginning Friday, September 23rd through Sunday, October 30th.
Owned by the same family for over six decades, from the 1840s until the early 1900s, the showhouse offers a rare inside look into a quintessential Brooklyn townhouse steeped in history while discovering the visionary work of talented interior designers.

The 26’-wide renovated townhouse features a grand 66’-deep double parlor with soaring 13’ ceilings and preserved period details, a spacious full-floor primary bedroom suite and five beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces. Most recently is an unexpected fifth-floor addition with floating stairs to the roof deck complete with both city and water views.

““This year’s showhouse is particularly thrilling,” Erika Belsey Worth says, “because there’s nothing virtual about it! When the doors open, our visitors will be able to run their fingertips over the finishes on the walls and the extraordinary textures of our designers’ fabric selections. They will sit on the sofas and absorb the rooms with reawakened awareness of what it means to be in an exquisitely designed space. We can’t wait to experience the 2022 showhouse designers’ magic!”

Proceeds from the showhouse will support the Brooklyn Heights Association, which was founded in 1910 and whose advocacy is critical to preserving Brooklyn Heights’ remarkable architecture. The association was instrumental in the creation of New York City’s first historic district, the construction of the iconic Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and the preservation of the nearby waterfront for what is now Brooklyn Bridge Park.
