This handsome twenty-foot-wide two-family Bay Ridge brownstone welcomes you up a graceful stoop into an airy, sun-splashed parlor level of the owner's duplex, which is graced with tall ceilings and classic turn-of-the-century accouterments.
Original inlaid parquet and hardwood floors and lovely details merge with contemporary flair within this distinctive home. A designer light fixture in the entry foyer draws you towards the adjacent living room, which showcases oversize bay windows, moldings and built-ins, and flows into an interior family room flanked with sconces. An enormous, windowed eat-in-kitchen is enhanced by a decorative mantle, breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances, including a Viking range. A door leads out to the deckoffering a perfect spot to linger over a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cocktailwith steps leading down to a serene, south-facing landscaped garden. A chic bathroom rounds out this level.
A stained glass skylight crowns the top of the staircase on the upper floor of the duplex where there are two large bedrooms, a den, a nursery (or additional space to work from home), a windowed laundry room and a full bath. The king-size bedroom has bay front casement windows and the rear bedroom overlooks the verdant garden below. The bathroom has been tastefully designed with a stained glass window and clawfoot tub.
The income-producing garden level offers a spacious living area, a bedroom and den, a windowed galley kitchen, an updated bathroom, and access to the patio and garden. The full-height basement below can be utilized for storage or updated for recreational use.
