An 1880 Brooklyn Heights townhouse called Garden Place, once home to the garden of Declaration of Independence signer Philip Livingston, is back on the market for $7.8 million.

The pad, first listed in 2007 for $6.995 million and appropriately located at 48 Garden Place, is one of nine houses that Brooklyn’s Parfitt Brothers designed. It features restored but original flooring, stairs, moldings and fireplaces, and was re-brownstoned within the last five years, according to the listing.

The historic pad, listed by Joan Goldberg of Brown Harris Stevens, includes two wood-burning fireplaces, an open kitchen, and a terrace overlooking the garden. And true to the locale’s original incarnation, the property boasts 1,100 square feet of outdoor space. [Curbed]Julie Strickland
