26 Underhill Avenue is one in a collection of eight newly constructed single-family townhomes located in Brooklyn's coveted Prospect Heights.
Re-interpreting the classic pre-war townhome, this three story 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. The second floor den has the possibility of being converted into a fourth bedroom.
Enter this home's foyer to grand 12-foot ceilings. The warmth and beauty of custom-stained wide plank white oak hardwood flooring welcomes you to the ensuing wide open space hosting a formal dining area, a master kitchen and great room.
The refined kitchen is crafted from sophisticated elements including imported walnut integrated cabinetry accented with high-gloss white glass and blackened steel frame and panel accents. White Carrara marble slab waterfall countertops and backsplash compliment a culinary island that opens to the generously proportioned great room. Appliances are seamlessly integrated and 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. The fireclay-finished apron-front sink with InSinkErator food disposer and Brizo articulating deck-mount faucet clad in rich matte black finish speaks to the Epicurean at the ready. A smartly hidden entry closet, pantry and powder room complete the first floor.
Ascend the custom stairs crafted of solid wood oak treads anchored by stately blackened steel frames to the master suite second floor clad in an exceptional glass curtain wall and skylight system giving way to the private terrace that yields a blend of impeccable luxury, natural light and open air breezes. The master bath is a five-fixture tranquil oasis of large format and classic porcelain square tiles within a separate shower replete with thermostatic controlled rain head, hand held and body sprays. A double-faucet trough on custom walnut wood vanity pairs with the free-standing slipper tub and floor-mounted tub filler. All fixtures by Brizo are finished in a rich matte black finish and radiant heated floors in all bath and powder rooms complete the experience.
The third floor features a split configuration of two bedrooms paired with a shared bathroom of classic imported porcelain tiles and a lion-foot pedestal tub. The rear bedroom provides for the same design continuity off the second floor glass curtain wall and skylight system here. All bedrooms sport custom built-in closets with oversized wood and mirror sliding doors.
The full height lower level floor offers additional open space coupled with a powder room offering a clean blend of white subway 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.
Enjoy the spacious, finished roof deck where the playful cityscapes of Northern Brooklyn provide spectacular views all year long.
High energy efficiency features of the home include an insulated Kemper roof, a PassiveHaus-certified Zehnder ventilation unit giving superior indoor air quality, overly insulated EIFS stucco facade and roof with thermal-break material, and double-gasket weather-sealed Yaro Energy windows with tilt-and-turn precision and concealed profile hinges by Schuco.
Smart home technology in the home features pre-wired home automation systems including Ring Video Doorbell, a SONOS zoned home sound system, and Verizon FiOS with several Wi-Fi access points.
