Welcome to 256 Van Brunt Street, a spacious and unique 3-story townhouse in the heart of desirable Red Hook. This extraordinary residence will surely check all your boxes, offering generous living space, 3 spacious bedrooms, 2.5 well-appointed baths, plus a lovely private outdoor deck and garden.
Beyond the unassuming fa ade of this Brooklyn gem awaits warm, beautiful loft-like interiors accented by extensive exposed brick walls, high 10' ceilings with wood beams, a wrought-iron bay window peering out to the lush rear garden, striking staircase, and a ductless split air conditioning system installed throughout the home. Tons of light fills the interiors pouring in through multiple oversized windows.
On level one, the thoughtfully structured 'great room' harmonizes the living room, dining room and kitchen, with a center island that makes for perfect entertaining. The kitchen is one-of-a-kind, rustic and suburban, likely to inspire cooking even among the non-culinary.
Behind the house is a landscaped garden of considerable size, with a double decker "playhouse" that can be used as an open tree house or an outdoor gym. There's also an attached elevated deck, ideal for an outdoor dining table and BBQ grill, alfresco living space, or serving cocktails on summer evenings.
A wide staircase rises to the second story occupied by 2 adjacent bedrooms - both big enough to have work/study spaces, and a full shared bath with tub. An ample transitional central space between rooms can easily serve as an office, den or media room.
The third, or 'club' level, presents a massive, private primary bedroom with an en-suite bath, each clad in brick with wood beamed ceilings. Enhancing the allure is a porcelain oval soaking tub in center, elegant chandelier above, hexagon tile flooring, and separate marbled steam shower. A custom walk-in closet, wall of built-in bookcases, and stacked washer-dryer complete the experience.
Van Brunt St is near great local shops & restaurants, Food Bazaar, basketball & handball courts, water-view parks, ice cream shops, galleries, and its own Ikea! A quick drive through the Hugh Carey Tunnel takes you to downtown Manhattan in 10 minutes or the B61 bus stop and water ferry is only a short walk away.
