Description:

Make your home in one of the most beautiful residences in all of Brooklyn. Featuring premium finishes, an outdoor swimming pool oasis and a separate pool/guest house, this seven-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bathroom showplace is the ideal destination for comfortable living and lavish entertaining.
Spanning 5,339 square feet over four levels, this peerless mansion impresses with gleaming hardwood floors, massive windows and soaring ceilings beautifully trimmed with recessed lighting and ceiling fans. Spa bathrooms feature high-end fixtures, including soaking tubs and rain showers. Every detail has been thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed. An incredibly flexible layout adds living space to each level, with multiple options for formal and casual gatherings.
A stunning wraparound porch invites you into the first floor, where a gracious foyer reveals open plan living and dining areas featuring tall wainscoting, big bay windows and inlaid herringbone floors. Ahead, the masterful eat-in kitchen includes custom cabinetry and upscale stainless steel appliances. A bedroom suite, second bedroom and chic powder room complete the level.
Ascend the graceful winding central staircase flanked by a 30-foot-tall window to find another floor of open-plan living space with a second well-stocked kitchen. French doors open to a magnificent primary suite with a sitting area, custom walk-in closet, en suite bathroom with an impressive marine window, and a private balcony overlooking the breathtaking rear yard. A unique floating staircase leads to a private office above, while the enclosed central staircase makes this level ideal as a private multigenerational living space or a palatial full-floor owner's retreat.
The top floor includes a large bedroom, full bath, powder room and multiple rooms that provide options for den, office, gym and family room use alongside terraces and bright skylights.
Head to the lower level to explore the exciting rec room finished with a colorful LED cove-lighted ceiling modeled after a luxurious Dubai hotel. The home theater sets the stage for fantastic movie nights, while a laundry room, storage closets and a full bathroom add convenience.
Outside, your private resort-like grounds await. A herringbone paver patio welcomes al fresco dining and lounging around the updated pool featuring a new pool liner, a bridge and a spa. The summer kitchen makes barbecues irresistible, while the bar features an embedded flat-screen TV perfect for gameday gatherings. Or add a DJ to the balcony above for spectacular pool parties. This beautifully maintained mansion features new skim coated walls, fresh paint and central HVAC. A gated driveway and perimeter walls add parking and privacy to this flawless Brooklyn estate.
Located mid-block on a tree-lined street in residential Bay Ridge, this gorgeous residence is inches from outstanding dining and shopping along 3rd and 5th Avenues. Breathtaking waterfront outdoor space and bridge views are just three blocks away. Excellent bus service, the R train, Bay Ridge Ferry Terminal, Belt Parkway, Gowanus Expressway and Verrazano-Narrows Bridge provide easy access to the rest of the city and beyond.
