Open House by Appointment Only - Please Pre-Register!
Welcome to 272 Kosciuszko Street. Originally built in 1899, this two-family home was completely reimagined in 2016. It is divided into an upstairs owner’s triplex with four separate outdoor spaces, and a garden level duplex apartment.
Ascending the stairs to the double front doors, an entrance vestibule greets you with added privacy. Beyond, the magnificent living space beckons with beautiful herringbone wood floors and 10’ high ceilings. The dining room can easily accommodate a table that seats eight to ten guests. The living room features an electric fireplace framed with custom woodwork. The open-concept kitchen boasts double height ceilings over 21’ and is framed by the south-facing floor to ceiling windows that overlook the backyard terrace and patio. The immaculate kitchen has a waterfall quartz countertop breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances (including a trash compactor), pantry and separate built-in bar with a wine fridge. There is also a powder room on this level. Outside, the elevated terrace off of the kitchen has a gas line for a grill. Down the stairs is a large garden and patio area.
On the second floor, an open mezzanine overlooks the kitchen through chic glass railings. The space is currently set up as a lounge area with a built-in daybed (including hidden storage), and a separate workout space. Also on this floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. The first bedroom enjoys a massive oversized window with all day northern light streaming in. The second bedroom is illuminated by a skylight. Both have excellent storage space and thoughtful custom closets. The modern bathroom features a tub and separate stall shower, heated floors, and outside is a washer/dryer.
Moving upstairs, the third floor is comprised of the primary suite. The large primary bedroom easily fits a king-sized bed. There is a five-fixture en suite bathroom with heated floors, a walk-in closet and an additional wall of closets. This floor also provides access to the huge outdoor terrace which has space for multiple seating areas and room for a projector to watch movies outside. A spiral staircase leads to a second rooftop terrace with incredible views of Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn. Appointed with artificial grass, it is minimal maintenance and a serene setting for yoga or meditation.
The owner’s triplex has been equipped with a Nest system and Sonos controlled in ceiling speakers throughout.
The lower level duplex apartment can serve as an income producing unit. The renovated kitchen overlooks the roomy living and dining area. There is a separate nook for a desk. The bedroom overlooks the garden and the contemporary bathroom is bright and clean with heated floors. Downstairs is a recreation room that can serve multiple functions, an additional powder bathroom and full size washer/dryer.
Located in the dynamic neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, every amenity is at your fingertips. This home is near popular spots like Burly Coffee, Saraghina, Peaches Hot House, BKLYN Blend and Maya Congee Cafe. Herbert Von King Park is a block away. Designed by famed Olmsted and Vaux as one of the first parks in the history of Brooklyn, it now has a fitness area, baseball field, indoor dance studio and outdoor amphitheater.
