This unexpected and renovated Brooklyn Heights 3-bed, 2 bath home has the breadth of a loft and the warmth of a classic brownstone. Enjoy the best of both worlds in a stunning Landmarked neighborhood known for its quiet and convenient tree-lined blocks close to every subway line and Brooklyn Bridge Park. At 1863 SF, the entire floor of a 25 wide x 80deep Italianate townhouse, you will make no sacrifices when it comes to space, light, location or condition. Renovated to perfection by the current owners just two years ago, you can move right in and enjoy central AC, two fully renovated marble baths, a stunning windowed chefs kitchen and three sunny exposures.
Head up just one small flight of stairs to the Parlor floor (and strollers allowed in the lobby!) into a formal entranceway that is perfect for keeping coats and shoes out of the living space. Walk towards the front of the apartment where you will be dazzled by a great room with multiple South-facing floor-to-ceiling windows, extra-high ceilings, and an open space large enough for an immense living room and a dining table that seats many. This grand scale is rare in townhouse living, afforded only by 25 wide homes, and add to that the extra depth of this property and prepare to be amazed. The glorious centerpiece of this room is a restored original marble wood-burning fireplace perfect to keep you warm, and entertained, throughout the cold winter months. The sheer size of this room will take your breath away, while the amazing sunlight afforded by an open view looking down picturesque Sidney Place will make you never want to leave.
A cheerful and renovated windowed kitchen opens to the dining area and allows for participation in the festivities, with just enough wall coverage to hide the dirty dishes from your guests. All new stainless appliances, a marble mosaic backsplash, and white Caesarstone countertops juxtapose perfectly with the custom white painted cabinets with solid and glass fronts. Do the dishes and relish a charming backyard view. And best of all, enjoy a wall of floor-to-ceiling pull-out pantries with custom inserts perfect to store everything you can need to enjoy the gourmet life.
Head towards the back of the apartment, past an enormous storage closet (that could easily be a walk-in clothing closet should you need it) into a primary bedroom with two additional closets and a renovated ensuite bathroom. Situated in the back of the building you can be guaranteed privacy and quiet every night. The second bedroom is also tucked away in the back of the building with quite a bit of privacy from the primary bedroom and very easily accessible to the 2nd full bathroom. A third bedroom sits off the living room and makes a perfect home office or 3rd bedroom with charming street views and is separated from the living room by a modern farmhouse vibe barn-door that can be left open or closed depending upon your needs. The long distance between the two back bedrooms and the front bedroom ensures the perfect work-from-home situation with no disruptions from other members of the household.
Both bathrooms are the perfect study of classic modern design. The primary bathroom offers oversized Carrara wall tiles with a marble floor mosaic and painted gray vanity. It offers a tub/shower combo for convenience. The second bathroom offers an oversized walk-in shower consisting of an artful combination of a tumbled marble and oversized Carrara walls, including a perfectly placed custom niche, and a unique marble floor. No expense was spared in either bathroom and they are the epitome of todays desire for minimalist glamour.
The timeless beauty of this apartment welcomes an owner with a modern, classic, or transitional aesthetic. Washer and dryers are allowed in the units, but the current owners just use the convenient machines in the basement. There is certainly space in this home to add a hook-up should you desire! The building itself is a financially stable and well-established coop that is dog and cat friendly and offers additional basement storage for every unit at no extra charge. Subletting is allowed with board approval. A large front yard sets this home far back from the street for privacy and provides a beautiful view all year long.
