Check out this rare wooden Federal-style townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, which was built in the 1820s. Though it hasn't changed hands in over 70 years, it's fully updated — retaining intricate tin wainscoting and pressed ceilings. Cheerily painted yellow on the outside, the interiors are lit by wide, modern windows and skylights. If you've been waiting for the time to buy, this might be your chance: The owner has dropped the price by over $1 million since last spring.
