Extraordinary single family townhouse on one of the best blocks in Greenpoint, now available. With its charming Italianate elegance, slate mansard roof and period details throughout, 123 Java Street is a rare find. Enter up the stoop through the lavender garden and into an open, sunlit parlor with a beautifully proportioned living room, center dining room and rear modern kitchen overlooking a landscaped garden. This entry floor features two carved marble fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows and original pine kitchen built-ins creating a feeling of artfulness and history.
Up the original stairway one finds two large bedrooms, also with marble fireplaces (one working), hardwood floors, as well as a renovated full bathroom with walk-in shower. Up one more flight are two treetop bedrooms (currently configured as a bedroom with a sitting room) with a laundry room, which could easily be converted into a full bath. A small hallway of closets connects the two rooms. A white dormer-windowed south-facing bedroom with working fireplace evokes quiet dreams.
On the garden level are two more bedrooms, currently configured as a casual living room with exposed beam ceiling and home office, and a second fully renovated bath with marble mosaic tile. Beyond a small annex one enters the professionally landscaped backyard with bluestone pavers, gravel, Hinoke cyprus, Japanese cutleaf maple and fig trees. Relax, play or entertain in this large and lush garden. The house is also equipped with ductless central air on the top two floors, new natural gas boiler and hot water heater, new roof, and five marble fireplace mantles, three of them wood burning. The lower cellar is great for storage.
There is no shortage of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques in the neighborhood: Oxomoco, Achilles Heel, Ramona, Paulie Gee's, Glasserie, Esme, and Troost to name a few. Transportation couldn't be easier - 1 blocks to the G train, 2 blocks to the East River Ferry, or hop on the BQE or 495 for a quick and easy exit out of the city.
