$5.5M Arts & Crafts home in Bay Ridge has modern period interiors and a magical backyard

6sqft // Jul 28, 2021

It’s always fun to see the big, suburban homes of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, with their varying architectural styles. This six-bedroom Arts & Crafts beauty is on the market for $5.5 million, and it’s certainly something different. Inside, a recent renovation restored period details from its construction in 1910 like coffered ceilings, marquetry floors, and built-ins, while adding modern takes on the style like barrel-vaulted ceilings and a wine cellar. Outside, the property feels like a magical garden, with a pool, waterfall, and fire pit.

Adjacent is the large living room. The incredible barrel-vaulted ceilings are definitely the highlight, as is the stone fireplace. Oversized French doors open to the backyard.

In the dining room, you’ll find a built-in buffet, built-in china cabinets, and lovely panel moldings.

A vaulted, beamed ceiling makes the kitchen feel extra large. It conveniently opens to the outside grilling area.

The primary bedroom is on the second floor. It has an attached study, a nearly 200-square-foot dressing room lined with closets, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. Also on this floor are two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a home office. There are three bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a den on the third level.

The lower level holds a large, open rec room, a laundry room, bathroom, and the temperature-controlled wine cellar and attached dining grotto, which are situated behind the original stone and brick walls.

The lower level leads right out to the two-car garage.

Finally, the backyard feels extra enchanting thanks to vintage-style lanterns, a brick pathway, stone wall and waterfall, and large shady trees everywhere.

Located in the exclusive Crescent Hill section of Bay Ridge, the home is less than two blocks from Shore Road Park, and the R train is available at 77th Street.
