SHOWN BY PRIVATE APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Offered for the first time in more than forty years, 103 Kent Street is the home you've been waiting for! This Italianate brick, two-family house, with a 25 ft. by 45 ft. footprint on a 25 ft. by 100 ft. lot, exudes 4500 SqFt of elegant spaciousness and is unlike any other home that has ever hit the local market. Lovingly restored and maintained by its current owners, this home has been continually upgraded along the way, most recently with the addition of Mitsubishi split systems on the top two floors. The house faces south and is filled with natural daylight. Located in the coveted Greenpoint Historic District, 103 Kent Street is currently configured as a 5-6 bedroom triplex over a garden-level one bedroom rental unit, and will be delivered vacant. With space like this, the possibilities are endless!
The massive living and dining room on the parlor level is dripping with original detail, including an 11'9" ceiling with plaster molding and medallions, two large white marble mantels, two original gas/electric chandeliers, and two original pier mirrors. A huge entry foyer contains a majestic staircase with its original mahogany railing and walnut balusters. A modern kitchen is conveniently located on this level and has direct access to a large deck with stairs leading down to a lush garden.
The second level, with generous 910 ceilings, has two bedrooms, an office, a spacious family room, a wet bar and a bathroom with marble floors and shower walls. The family room could easily be used as another bedroom.
The third level has three bedrooms, a bathroom with a Carrera marble floor, a Jacuzzi tub and a vanity, as well as a conveniently located laundry room. This level has 9'4" ceilings.
The garden-level, one-bedroom rental unit is a potential source of significant income or could be combined with the triplex to make a one-of-a-kind single-family home in the heart of the coveted Greenpoint Historic District.
The cellar houses the mechanicals for the building (gas boiler, gas hot water heater, and electrical panels) and provides incredible storage, or could be turned into a fabulous gym or media room.
Originally built circa 1874 for Sarah and William Young, a ship's chandler and hardware dealer, 103 Kent Street has a brick facade pierced by segmental-arched windows that decrease in height with each rising story. The garden railing and the balustrades on the stoop leading to the parlor level are original, and the garden-level window guards were added in the late 19th century.
103 Kent Street is a must-see --- but not for the faint of heart, because you are going to fall in love!
