A most rare and unique living experience awaits you at 132 Kane Street in the heart of the Cobble Hill Historic District! This industrial townhouse on a coveted Brooklyn street corner, melds a storied past with exquisite modern living quarters. A former butcher shop and antique store in the same family for over 75 years has been completely transformed, incorporating modern amenities and industrial finishes with a nod toward historic preservation.
The top-to-bottom renovation affords an unequaled standard of living and plenty of room to work from home in one of Brooklyn's sought-after neighborhoods. Inspired by early 20th century modern French architects and designers like Le Corbusier, Robert Mallet Stevens, Pierre Chareau, and Jean Prouve, interiors of this 4-story gem with a finished basement are chic and refined. Two spacious decks (one rooftop, one 2nd level) take comfort and convenience over the top!
Impeccably-designed living quarters are graced by such distinctive elements as blackened steel and factory glass, juxtaposed with luxurious materials like Carrara marble and dark washed floors. This is set against an enticing backdrop of clean white walls and warm exposed brick. An expansive open layout provides an easy flow for living, dining and entertaining. At the core is a stunning kitchen with poured concrete counters that integrate into the central freestanding concrete fireplace/chimney, anchoring a matte black Bertazoni range and hood. Also for the chef are top-of-the-line Sub-Zero fridge and wine coolers, a Bosch dishwasher, and light pouring in through the massive frosted, restored storefront windows. A bedroom suite or office with full bath, and a powder room completes level one.
A sleek staircase rises to the upper stories. On the 2nd floor is a bedroom suite, rec/family room, and large concrete paver deck. Level 3 offers 2 en-suite bedrooms with substantial closets including a walk-in, and a Whirlpool washer-dryer. Radiant heat floors indulge in all stylish en-suite baths. Downstairs is a huge basement extending the living/entertaining space, featuring exposed stone walls, 10' ceilings, and 688-bottle wine storage with a kitchenette and tasting area.
Have the ultimate outdoor enjoyment on the fabulous roof deck spanning the building's length and width, showcasing panoramic views of Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. Perfectly located near the 4, 5, F and R subway lines, BQE, Smith Street, cafes, restaurants and shops!
Also available is the opportunity to have the home delivered with a fully stocked wine cellar, with some of the world's most sought-after vintages, curated by sommelier Jesse Warner-Levine. Price upon request.
