It's long, but if you like the pictures, worth the read!

Welcome to 185 St. James Place, an 1860s Federal Style townhome with Italianate features located on a picturesque block set within the landmarked Clinton Hill Historic District.

Grab the intricate cast iron stoop railing and notice the restored original brick faade with roofline cornice. Enter into the home through double front doors and be welcomed into the parlor with its many architectural details - refinished plaster, double crown molding, marble mantle fireplace, original inlayed parquet floors, high ceilings and chandelier rosettes. The parlor level has a gracious gallery and living area (complete with renovated powder room) which then flows into the dining area and open kitchen. The kitchen has Viking appliances (including wine refrigerator) a Bosch dishwasher and custom cabinetry with marble counter tops. The rear door from the kitchen and dining area leads directly outside to a peaceful and private terrace for alfresco dining, overlooking the lush landscaped garden.

Up the staircase is the primary suite, which includes the king-size primary bedroom, a huge walk-in closet/sitting room (formerly a bedroom) with marble mantle, wedding cake-detailed ceiling and a Bosch washer/dryer! The renovated marble bathroom with dual vanities and radiant heated flooring completes this retreat. The skylit top level has two large bedrooms (one king-size and the other queen-size with exposed original beams and built-in shelving - currently used as a study) plus a renovated bath with a mix of new and restored original fixtures. Of note, the home's faade faces west and the rear faces east - a rarity that provides ample light at the right times of day throughout all levels.

The garden level and cellar have both been thoughtfully designed. Though contiguous within the home, this level has its own entrance under the stoop and contains another queen-size bedroom, living room, plus renovated bath and kitchen with Bertazzoni and Bosch appliances. Perfect as a 4th bedroom, for guests, nanny's or mother-in-law's quarters! This level also has access to the garden with decking, koi pond, irrigated planters, new privacy fencing, water and electric.

One floor below is the windowed cellar, configured as an entertaining area (with large wine refrigerator closet) plus a separate room that is a gym containing a weight bench and Peloton.

Verizon Fios connects it all, with Google Nest keyless entry, auto-timed outdoor lighting, irrigation, Nest thermostat and Wi-Fi control for cooling and heating in every room. Easily pair Smart TVs, Sonos, etc. Fios internet is included in the rate; there is a DirecTV dish installed on the roof that can be reactivated if satellite is your preference for television.

And all of this is just one and a half blocks from the Clinton-Washington Avenue C/A and a five minute walk to the G; your location is perfect for speedily getting in and out! But stick around and hang out at Sisters, Otway, Otway Bakery, Place de Fetes, Laconda Vini e Olii, Aita, and more - incredible dining all within a couple of blocks! Available January 15, 2023 as unfurnished, partially-furnished or furnished.

This is truly the ultimate in luxury turn-key with no detail overlooked! Owner/Broker.
