This 20' wide x 60' deep semi-detached 'bookend' brownstone is one of the finest and most unique properties within the Mount Morris Park Historic District. Approximately 6,000 SF in total (including the 1200 SF storage basement).
The main entryway is framed by two fluted pilasters, and inside, a large original pier mirror and bench sits underneath a reclaimed 1920's original chandelier, all outside of the imported 1880's Argentinian wooden arched doorway which provides access to the main Owner's triplex.
Entering further, original paneling and a solid mahogany banister invites the visitor upstairs to a spectacular one-of-a-kind loft loaded with original detailing, two wood burning fireplaces, and unique materials such as reclaimed soapstone, a cast-iron support column, and wide-plank cork flooring. The ceiling height measures 11 feet and from every window there is a stunning view of the gorgeous landmark church.
The kitchen has been spared no expense, and includes a 48' Sub-Zero Pro refrigerator, a LaCornue Chateau 150 range with a commercial hood, a Gaggenau induction range, Miele Dishwasher, and a 10' long countertop made of one solid piece of custom volcanic soapstone.
Toward the back of this floor, a windowed guest bathroom features honeycomb Carrara marble and stylistic fixtures by Harrington Brass to create a luxurious bath and shower experience.
Upstairs on the top level of this home, a beautiful king-master bedroom is stylistically adorned with a functioning copper bathtub that is placed next to an original wood-burning fireplace. The master bathroom features another antique vanity next to a modern steam shower room built for two. Pass through the walk-in dressing area, through a full-size laundry room with floor-to-ceiling original cabinetry accented with brass hinges and latches. The other bathroom on this level benefits from a big skylight and notable fixtures by Lefroy Brooks and Fantini.
The backyard of this home is absolutely enchanting and deserves a special mention. Since the property is detached, there is a lot of open space in the yard, yet it remains extremely private, secluded, and shaded with the large overhanging tree cover. It is a generous private outdoor space - approximately 20' x 40' and currently has a large dining table, several lounge chairs, outdoor lighting and a BBQ smoker/grill. The perimeter of the yard is fenced-in using reclaimed original wood from the brownstone itself.
Can be delivered completely vacant with a Certificate of No Harassment (CoNH) or a final two-family CofO.
