24 Underhill Avenue is one in a collection of eight newly constructed single-family townhomes located in Brooklyn's coveted neighborhood of Prospect Heights.
Re-interpreting the classic pre-war townhome, this residence combines both smart home technology and state-of-the-art PassivHaus components for superior energy performance unmatched in any series of single-family dwellings in Brooklyn.
The exceptionally choreographed floor plan spans roughly 2,700 square feet across three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two powder rooms, great room, den, laundry room, finished cellar, private terrace, and finished roof deck.
Enter this home's foyer to wide open space hosting a formal dining area, master kitchen and great room featuring 12-foot ceilings and custom-stained wide plank white oak hardwood flooring.
The open master kitchen sparks the senses with imported high-gloss white glass and grey-stained oak integrated cabinetry accented by custom black aluminum framing. White Carrara marble slab waterfall countertops and backsplash compliment the culinary island that opens to the generously proportioned great room. Seamlessly integrated appliances include Thermador refrigerator, freezer, ice maker and wine preservation columns as well as a built-in microwave/convection oven and Bosch 800 Series/Benchmark wall oven, cooktop and dishwasher. A Franke stainless steel zero-edge under mount sink is complete with InSinkErator food disposer and Brizo articulating deck-mount faucet finished in a sleek matte black metal finish. Modo pendant lighting by independent Brooklyn based designers illuminates the space's third dimension. Smartly hidden powder room, entry closet and pantry complete the abstract of the first floor.
Custom stairs crafted of solid wood oak treads anchored by stately blackened steel frames take you to the second floor - home to an opulent Master Suite that blends the ultimate in luxury with light and open air breezes invited through this level's private terrace. The master bath is a resplendent five-fixture oasis outfitted with classic honed white Carrara marble slabs and wall-to-wall mirror. A separate shower includes thermostatic rain head, handheld and body sprays by Brizio in a rich matte black finish. A double-faucet trough on custom grey-stained oak vanity beautifully blends with the free-standing Erion tub and floor-mounted tub filler. Radiant heated floors in all bath and powder rooms complete the ultimate experience.
The third floor layout features a split configuration of two bedrooms paired with a shared bathroom of white Carrara marble, grey-stained oak vanity, wall-to-wall mirror and Imler tub. The rear bedroom provides design continuity via the skylight and curtain wall system cascading to the second floor. Bedrooms feature spacious closets with oversized wood and mirror sliding doors.
This home is equipped with a full height lower level floor offering additional open space coupled with a powder room clad in a blend of white and Carrara mosaic tiles. This level provides a dedicated laundry room with stainless steel Kohler washbasin, high gloss white lacquered cabinetry and LG Ultra Large Capacity Turbowasher, Steam Dryer and Sidekick compact drawer washer for the latest in cleaning efficiency and technology.
Lighting decor throughout the home is meticulously handcrafted by independent Brooklyn-based artisans.
